MOSCOW, January 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
ElcomSoft Co. Ltd. updates iOS Forensic Toolkit, adding physical acquisition support for 32-bit iOS 8 devices. Physical acquisition support is now available for iOS 8 devices including iPhone 4S, 5 and 5C, iPad 2 through 4, the original iPad Mini, and iPod Touch 5th gen. In addition, the new release extracts Apple ID and password (if available), enabling real-time acquisition of iCloud backups via a separate tool.
At this time, physical acquisition is only available for Apple's 32-bit hardware with known or empty passcode or carrying a jailbreak. 64-bit hardware including iPhone 5S, 6 and 6 Plus, as well as iPad Air, iPad Mini with Retina display are not currently supported regardless of jailbreak or lock status. Support for 64-bit devices is currently under development.
68% of Apple customers have already upgraded to iOS 8. Adding forensic support for iOS 8 enables experts extracting information from jailbroken devices, and allows performing physical acquisition of devices carrying no passcode lock (providing that a jailbreak can be installed).
Windows and MacOS X versions are available. Physical acquisition support varies depending on lock state, jailbreak state and the version of iOS installed:
- iPhone 4 and older; iPad 1; iPod Touch 1-4: no restrictions, all versions of iOS
- iPhone 4S, 5; iPad 2-4; iPod Touch 5: if already jailbroken, or if a jailbreak can be installed (iOS 6, 7 and 8, device unlocked, passcode is known or not used)
