Apple iPhone Data Recovery
14th January 2010
Apple iPhone continues to proliferate despite the global recession.
In the final quarter of 2009 sales figures were estimated at 11.3 million worldwide.
Apple seem to have cornered the UK smartphone (a phone offering advanced, usually PC like functionality) market – with 76% of smartphone users having opted for iPhones.
Not only can iPhones be used to make phone calls and send and receive text messages, they can be used to access the Internet, access websites and send and receive emails – amongst a plethora of other functions. Apple’s iPhone is essentially a computer that fits into the palm of your hand.
Clearly the proliferation of iPhones causes complexities to those concerned with investigations where a user may have had access to such a device. Fortunately, CYFOR has developed forensic and data recovery techniques that facilitate the interrogation of iPhones and the recovery of deleted data.
Using these techniques it is possible to investigate where an iPhone has previously been used and how it has been employed.
CYFOR has previously assisted clients with the interrogation of iPhones by recovering deleted voice-mail messages, pictures, emails, calendar entries, address book entries and even text messages (amongst other data).
Embedded data found within recovered photographs has even been examined to determine where the photograph was taken.
