The iPhone is a smartphone made by Apple Inc. and sold with service through AT&T. It can be used to send/receive email (see IPhone Mail Header Format), keep schedules, surf the web, and view videos from YouTube. A large number of forensic products can process iPhones, such as Oxygen Forensic Suite 2010.

In December 2009, Nicolas Seriot presented (PDF) a harvesting application, SpyPhone. This application grabs data as sensitive as location data and a cache of keyboard words. It neither requires jailbreaking nor makes Private API calls (which Apple's App Store does not allow in any application it distributes).
