iOS (pronounced i-O.S) is the name of the operating system for Apple's mobile devices (iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch).

The current version of iOS is 4.3.5 however it is expected that iOS 5 be released some time in September/October 2011.

File System

iOS runs a cut down version of OSX and as a result the file system looks very much the same.


There are several tools available to extract information out of iOS operating systems:

  • Cellebrite UFED and Physical Analyzer
  • Aceso
  • Oxygen Forensic Suite
  • XRY
  • Lantern
  • Blacklight
