Mobile Forensics is a branch of Cyber Forensic that gathers and analyses mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets and third party applications to collect digital data of forensic value. Mobile forensic software tools mainly investigate ”typical” cell phone data such as contact information, text messages and voicemail. Most of the time, these methods ignore the data stored in third party applications. Most third-party applications mounted on Apple iOS mobile devices leave a trace with items of forensic significance. This includes records of user identity, such as passwords, timestamps, geographic locations, contact information, native data, and various media archives. One such application called Tile could potentially hold very valuable information which can be used in a digital forensics investigation such as geolocation of specific items at a given time.
