With Apple’s release of iOS 10.2 came a drastic increase in the encryption of its iTunes backups. Following that change, BlackBag® has improved BlackLight®’s ability to import both the iTunes encrypted backups from a Windows or Mac computer, as well as, importing data from an iOS device where the “Encrypt iPhone backup” setting has been selected.


With BlackLight®, we are also releasing its updated EWMounter application. EWMounter is now capable of being used on the newest Apple operating system, macOS Sierra, 10.12. EWMounter is designed to complement BlackLight®, offering the examiner a choice of directly importing an E01 into BlackLight® as an image, or first mounting the E01 and then importing the mounted volume into BlackLight®. EWMounter will automatically mount the E01 in a read-only manner.
