Apple iOS Targeted Extraction

Did you know XRY can recover vital iOS data in around 5-10 minutes?

The targeted extraction of non-jailbroken iOS devices in XRY provides a radically faster extraction speed than is traditional. You can expect to perform a complete targeted extraction in 5 minutes or less, including the time it takes to decode the information.

It extracts system app data such as Accounts, Calendar & Tasks, Calls, Chat (iMessage), Contacts, Installed Apps, SMS & MMS, Notes, Voicemail and Web Browser Bookmarks.

Limitations using the targeted extraction of non-jailbroken devices:

  • iTunes Backup encryption must be disabled.
  • Calls and Tasks are only supported up to iOS 12.
  • Attachments are not supported on Chat (iMessage), MMS or Voicemail.
  • The device needs to be trusted.

Support for targeted extraction of jailbroken devices is also available in XRY. This option is very fast and efficient and offers the retrieval of much more information than before. You can expect to perform a complete targeted extraction of a jailbroken device in 5-10 minutes or less, depending on the amount of data that is retrieved, including the time it takes to decode the information.

The huge advantage with the targeted extraction of jailbroken devices is that it does not require the device to be trusted. If the device is not trusted, there is some data which may not be possible to retrieve, marked below with an asterisk (*).

It extracts system app data such as Accounts, App Usage, Calendar & Tasks, Calls, Chat (iMessage), Contacts, Installed Apps (*), Keyboard cache, Locations (*), Maps, Networks, Network Usage, Notes, Recent Activity, SMS & MMS, Voicemail, Voice Memo and Web Browser.

It may also extract user app data from the following top apps: Chrome, Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Gmail, Google Maps, Instagram, KakaoTalk, Kik Messenger, Line, LinkedIn, QQ, QQ Browser, QQ HD, QQ International, Signal, Snapchat, Tango, Telegram, Tinder, Twitter, Viber, WeChat, WhatsApp and Wickr.

The list of apps supported by the targeted extraction of jailbroken devices may be updated to reflect popular app trends. If you have any special requests for specific apps, please let us know at support@msab.com

Please note that the targeted extraction will adhere to any triage settings that you are using. If the overriding XRY triage settings result in no data retrieved, you will be given the option to continue with a normal extraction instead.
