Unlocking a device may only be half the battle. Even if an unlocked device is recovered or a consent search is granted, being able to perform a complete physical extraction, or full file system extraction from the latest Apple iOS and Google Android devices may not be possible through conventional means.

Cellebrite offers this exclusive service to law enforcement agencies worldwide for lawfully authorized examinations. Agencies can either provide the device already unlocked, furnish the known passcode, or use Cellebrite’s Advanced Unlocking Services to unlock the device. The world’s first and only decrypted physical extraction capability possible for leading Apple iOS and Google Android devices, Advanced Extraction Services features new capabilities for forensic practitioners to retrieve the full file system to recover downloaded emails, third-party application data, geolocation data and system logs.  All of this can be done without needing to jailbreak or root the device which eliminates any risk in compromising data integrity and the forensic soundness of the process.
