BlackLight and APOLLO: How to Use Apple Pattern-of-Life Data in Your Investigations

BlackLight’s latest release, BlackLight 2019 R3, now has APOLLO framework built in as a plugin to make it even easier for investigators to get the most out of their data. Pattern-of-life data can be used in many types of investigations to get extremely detailed information from device users. What application was a user using three weeks ago? Where has the user been? Was the user walking, running, or sleeping at a given time? Was the user driving distracted, were they parked or moving? Querying and correlating the databases that keep track of these details can help examiners answer a myriad of investigative questions.- Overview of Pattern of Life
