We started recovering cell phone text messages and contacts from old flip phones back in 2008. Over a decade has passed and hundreds of phones in our lab have given up their secrets. New powerful mobile device forensics tools have delivered breakthrough capabilities for evidence recovery from iPhones and Android smartphones.
For example, America’s most popular smartphone has become a materially important source of best evidence for civil and criminal litigation. But the effectiveness of iPhone forensics to recover probative evidence has been declining for a decade. A major, transformational advance introduced earlier this year marks the return of iPhone forensics. It enables the recovery of vastly greater quantities of live and deleted evidence including new forms of highly probative evidence we’ve only begun to understand. Imagine how you might use breakthrough iPhone messages, health, activity, and pattern of life evidence for advocacy on your next case.
Whatever mobile device your client or opposing counsel may present, we can handle it. If it’s damaged, even waterlogged, we can repair it before examination. We can recover or bypass most passcodes that lock smart phones using bootloaders or more advanced techniques like JTAG, chip-off, and ISP. We can often defeat an encrypted Android phone. And if the phone disappears, we have a long list of alternative evidence sources to discuss with you as we work together to develop a plan “B” for proving your case.
Our mobile device forensics tools recover evidence from over 31,100 makes and models of mobile devices. We also decode text messages, chat, and other evidence from over 10,900 versions of mobile apps from your client’s iPhone or Android phone. We have learned to avoid reliance on just one tool to recover evidence. One tool is never enough! So we use the three best mobile device forensics tools on the planet. We use all three to examine each cell phone that enters our lab to recover and decode all the mobile evidence on which your case may turn. If one tool, can’t find it, another will. We find deleted and hidden evidence on every phone and are experts at spoliation cases.
