There were a number of experts offering to crack the phone for free. Some were US-based. That the FBI went with a foreign company to the tune of $1M suggests strongly to me that said foreign company had done some favor for the FBI that had not been compensated up to that point.

Apple has been aggressively iterating on its security since then. Specifically, I believe that the publicly suggested hacks have been disabled.
