In addition to its work with the Windows and Android platforms, BlackBag Technologies has long been an industry-leading source for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch forensic tools and training. This page includes links to our own iPhone forensic resources, as well as several iPhone forensic resources available on the Web.

Need to acquire and analyze an iOS device? Mobilyze, BlackBag’s mobile device triage tool, can accomplish the job, and with a minimal learning curve for those with limited digital forensics experience. The Mobilyze case can then be brought into BlackLight for more comprehensive analysis. Alternatively, the iOS device can be acquired directly into BlackLight. Either tool offers logical acquisition capability for iOS devices.
