The recovered iPhone from missing boater Austin Stephanos may not end up yielding any clues.

Last summer, Stephanos was lost at sea along with his friend Perry Cohen.

The phone was sent to Apple for forensic examination.

Michael Pike, an attorney for Austin's father, says Apple has a team of engineers and staff working around the clock on Austin's phone but have not been successful powering it up.

Apple seems to be at a dead end at this point, according to Pike.

Pike says he is discussing with his client other possible options and says the phone is currently still in Apple's possession.
