According to the contents of the letter, the iPhone carried by the shooter, the very phone all this fuss is about may come of no use regarding this matter.
This particular iPhone, which was being used by the San Bernardino shooter, was a standard iPhone provided to all the employees by the San Bernardino County.

According to the user, this particular iPhone was only meant for work and thus the victim used the same as only a work phone. She had never kept any private information on this iPhone and had also never used it for any kind of private communication.
