Cell phone forensics involves analyzing the contents of a mobile device. Forensic storage is a critical aspect of cell phone examining. Forensic examination aims to preserve the admissibility of evidence and prevent the deletion of important information. Device manufacturers often alter form factors, operating systems, file structures, and peripherals and cables, making it difficult to use a single standardized metric. Therefore, forensic examiners must develop unique methods for each device.

Forensics can also be used to preserve the data contained in mobile phones. The purpose of gathering information is to reconstruct data from these devices. To do this, the forensic expert uses specialized software, such as the UFED Reader, to extract the data and other information from them. The forensic image is obtained by copying the contents of a mobile device, compressing and encrypting them, and then loading them into specialized software for analysis.

Mobile phone forensics also includes the extraction of information from the device’s various sources. This data can be obtained from apps and photos, location data, latitude/longitude, and network detail. The forensic software can also extract information from the storage media, such as SIM or SD cards, backups, and cell site analysis. Forensics can even help in recovering lost or stolen phones. There are many different uses for mobile phone capturing.
