Elcomsoft Phone Viewer gains preliminary support for the updated local and cloud backup formats introduced in iOS 14. The tool can now display the content of iTunes and iCloud backups and synchronized data produced by devices running the new OS.

Elcomsoft Phone Viewer is updated with preliminary support for iTunes and iCloud backups produced by Apple devices running the latest iOS 14. The updated iOS release introduced changes in the backup data format, which required updating the viewing tool to conform to these changes. Elcomsoft Phone Viewer 5.20 can now open both local and cloud backups in the new format, enabling forensic access to evidence extracted from the device with Elcomsoft iOS Forensic Toolkit or downloaded from iCloud with Elcomsoft Phone Breaker.

Elcomsoft Phone Viewer is a quick and easy to use tool to help forensic experts analyze information extracted with ElcomSoft and third-party mobile acquisition tools. Experts can view and decrypt iOS local backups, analyze the content of iCloud backups, access iCloud synchronized data, and browse through file system images extracted from jailbroken iOS devices.
