Pattern-of-life data can provide a story about how a device and its user interact with each other. A user using their Mac or iPhone may have no idea how intimate of a picture can be extracted from the analytical data on their devices. An extremely creepy and granular picture in many cases. This data can be used in a variety of forensic investigations from criminal matters to device intrusions but may end of being a privacy nightmare if the data were to fall into the wrong hands.
Last Fall I introduced a (very) beta version of my new Apple Pattern of Life Lazy Output 'er (APOLLO) tool. Since then I've had lots of positive feedback and have reconfigured and have added more iOS specific modules. With more mobile support and desktop support coming soon investigators can now get a better view of what a user was doing at any given time (assuming they 're all drink the Apple Koolaid of course!)
