Overview

In this webcast, we'll compare application data stored on both Android and iOS Devices. Both Android and iOS devices rely upon SQLite database files to store application data within the handsets memory. Android also utilizes external storage for application data storage. What occurs when the SD card containing application data is removed from the Android device? This webcast contains key material directly from the upcoming course "FOR585 Advanced Smartphone and Mobile Device Forensics" to demonstrate data retention on two of the most popular smartphones.

In addition, how do these smartphones handle deleted data? Do they encrypt application data? What challenges are involved in examining application data on Android and iOS devices. The similarities and differences will be highlighted in this smartphone overview of the new FOR585 course.
