Magnet acquire is a free tool and allows you to extract both android and ios, are there free tools to view and analyze backups extracted with magnet acquire?

I had a hard time importing it into Autopsy, how exactly should it be imported?

"Using the Module

Simply add your physical images or file system dumps as data sources and enable the Android Analyzer module."

I really do advise you invest in at least one smartphone forensic analysis tool if you can.

Certainly if one is performing forensic work in a professional setting, a paid tool is preferred and also most importantly, one should engage is high quality training and certification.

For example, Compelson's MOBILedit Forensic has a $99.00 single phone license option which allows one to both image and analyze a smartphone.

The most important aspect of smartphone forensics, IMHO is understanding how smartphone operating systems and applications work.

Cellebrite's CASA class was the most informative class I have ever taken and was worth every penny.   Take a look at the Cellebrite CASA syllabus and you will see exactly what subjects you should be mastering in terms of smartphone forensic analysis:

Thanks for the help, I personally extract android with adb and ios with itune backup.
If you want to use authopsy, ok you enable the android module and for ios you enable ileapp if I remember the name correctly, but in authopsy you can only import physical copies? Logical copies right?
