iOS Biome Artifacts

New in this release of AXIOM, is iOS Biome artifact recovery. Data from the Biome can be used to provide a detailed story about how a user interacts with their digital device within any given timeframe. Uncovering what applications have been used during specific times of the day—even if the application has been deleted—can help support pattern-of-life analysis, showing what’s normal user behavior and allowing you to key in on what’s not normal.

Many of these insights were previously captured in KnowledgeC but were relocated to the Biome with the introduction of iOS 16.

To learn more about accessing Biomes in your iOS extractions, check out our latest blog by Chris Vance and his latest installment in the Mobile Unpacked webinar series.
