    LOS ANGELES: The US government said Monday it may have found a way to crack the iPhone of one of the San Bernardino attackers without Apple’s help, possibly avoiding a showdown with the tech giant. In a court filing, federal prosecutors said that on Sunday, an unidentified “outside party” had demonstrated to the FBI a possible way to unlock Syed Farook’s iPhone. “Our top priority has always been gaining access into the phone used by the terrorist in San Bernardino,” Justice Department spokeswoman Melanie Newman said in a statement. “With this goal in mind, the FBI has continued in its efforts to gain access to the phone without Apple’s assistance, even during a month-long period of litigation with the company.”
