A potentially key piece of evidence in Oscar Pistorius‘ trial has yet to be analyzed with his next court appearance coming Aug. 19.

Pistorius’ iPhone is password protected, but Pistorius said he had forgotten the password, according to reports.

Investigators asked Interpol to assist them in reaching out to Apple, but Interpol has not yet responded, according to Eyewitness News in South Africa.

While the handset seized at Pistorius’s house is not locked, investigators require the iTunes account password in order to analyse the device and access deleted or hidden data.

Pistorius shot and killed girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on the early hours of Valentine’s Day at his Pretoria home. Pistorius said he thought Steenkamp was an intruder when he shot her. The prosecution argued it was premeditated murder. At least four phones were found in Pistorius’ home.

On Aug. 19, Pistorius will likely hear details of the charges against him and face another postponement until near the end of the year, according to Yahoo! Sports.
