Update released September 23, 2020

We have released version 7.3 with important new features which will improve the amount of evidence you retrieve from analyzed devices.

What’s new

Apple Watch direct reading

  • MOBILedit is now able to read data directly from Apple Watch via a special reader and extract data such as device info (MAC addresses, memory, UID, SW revisions), Notes (recordings) and files, app list, synchronized pictures (related locations) and System logs.

KaiOS support

  • KaiOS, a Linux-based operating system designed for feature phones is now completely supported on a physical level. The physical analysis provides you with all the important data such as contacts, messages, organizer, browser history, browser bookmarks, calls, alarms, notes, WhatsApp, and more. KaiOS operating system is very popular among feature phones such as Alcatel, Nokia, Accent, Telma and many other local brands.
