On the Web page of the new UFED Premium, Celebrate says it's the only solution for law enforcement wanting to "unlock and extract crucial mobile evidence from all the top iOS and Android devices in the world." range".
On iOS, UFED Premium is compatible with devices running iOS 7 via iOS 12.3.
Ignore or determine locks and perform a full file system extraction on any iOS device to obtain much more data than is possible through logical extractions and other conventional means.
Access third-party application data, online chat, downloaded e-mail and attachments, deleted content, etc., increase your chances of finding incriminating evidence and resolve your case.
UFED will be sold as an on-site tool, as wired Notes. This means that the police can buy the device and use it themselves as needed. A problem with this on-site business model is that it is difficult for Cellebrite to protect its technology. Earlier this year, we found that Cellebrite products were widely available on eBay for just $ 100.
Apple has worked hard to block business tools like Cellebrite and Grayshift. Last October, it was revealed that Grayshift's GrayKey caseback could no longer unlock iOS 12 devices due to changes made by Apple.
Wired notes that Grayshift has since developed tools allowing it to unlock "at least some versions of iOS 12". The two forensic societies are facing each other, and Cellebrite's announcement this week is likely to win back at least some of the clients. from Grayshift.
