Reveal iTunes Backup

If you previously used iTunes software to back up your iOS device, you can use this feature to extract data from the created iTunes backup using MOBILedit Forensic.

Using this feature allows you to see iTunes backups on your workstation that are saved in the default iTunes backup storage location of:

"C:\Users\user1\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\4d14abaa2da8383ae719a6b37226fc9afb1849aa"

MOBILedit Forensic

Select “Import data” and then choose “Reveal iTunes backup:



A list of available backups will appear and once you have selected an iTunes backup, click “Next” to begin the extraction and analysis.

If a password has previously been set on the device for backups, you will be asked to enter the password. If a password has not been set, MOBILedit Forensic will input one to force the creation of an encrypted iTunes backup, as these contain more data than an unencrypted backup.
