Many people today have an iPhone, iPad or iPod. Not many would realize that valuable information is stored on these devices. When a crime occurs, an iOS Device could hold key information to help solve said crime that criminals are not aware are present on the device. This can include GPS information as well as application history on the device itself.

The project I wish to do and complete is to create a class where students can learn the about iOS Forensics. Student will be able to learn the basics of an iDevice, as well as how to work with forensics tools to acquire the information in an efficient manner. The class will also introduce forensic tools that can be used with iOS Devices. These tools can include Open Source and Commercial forensic tools. This class will be offered to both Graduates and Undergraduates at Governors State University. It will act as a beginner’s class, for individuals who want to learn more and have an interest in iOS Forensics.
