"With the popularization of data in the cloud, especially iOS devices that utilize Apple's iCloud technology, having access to the documents, videos and photos that reside in the cloud is even more critical for professionals in the field of forensics," said Lee Reiber, Oxygen Forensics COO. "Obtaining photos and videos with geo coordinates and time stamps along with other documents can make all the difference for experts in their daily mobile forensic routines."

Oxygen Forensic Detective v.8.4 now allows forensic experts the ability to find information on iOS devices from:

  • iCloud Photos - the new release added the ability to extract data from iCloud Photos. Forensic experts obtain access to photos, their geo coordinates and time stamps. Extracted photos with geo coordinates can be viewed offline with Oxygen Forensic® Maps.
  • iCloud Drive - the updated version added the ability to extract data from iCloud Drive. This includes the ability to extract all available files including documents, videos and photos.

Extracting data from the cloud is vital when a device owner is missing along with the device. In such cases, forensic experts using Oxygen Forensic Detective have a unique opportunity to analyze the latest saved photos, track them on a map and use that to figure out the user's route and/or location.
