Offline iOS Tracking and Remote Wiping

Beginning with the iPhone 11, Apple introduced the U1 chip which utilizes a short-range, low energy, wireless communications protocol. The U1 chip provides highly accurate spatial and directional data, enabling phones (and items such as AirTags) to be tracked with high precision. It also maintains power and connectivity, even if a device is in Airplane Mode or completely powered off.

In this presentation, Mitch Kajzer will discuss the implications of the “always on” U1 chip. Specifically, what are the tracking capabilities? Can the chip be turned off? When a device is in a powered down state, will the U1 chip accept commands, such as a wipe command? Through extensive testing and wiping, current best practices for digital evidence handling will be discussed, as well as best practices for handling the U1 chip in your investigations.
