The aim of this article is to show the usefulness of Mac OS X based open source tools for forensic investigation of modern iPhones. It demonstrates how important data stored in the iPhone is investigated. Two different scenarios of investigations are presented that are well-suited for a forensics lab work in university. This work shows how to analyze an Apple iPhone using open source and freeware tools. Important data used in a forensics investigation, which are possibly stored on a mobile device are presented. Also the superstructure and functions of the iPhone are explained.
