While this information is complete at time of release, the information below is subject to change without notice and is provided for informational purposes only.

 

SUMMARY

 

To enhance our mobile forensic tool further, the new features and enhancements of Mobilyze 2018 R2 include:

 

·      Apple devices with iOS 12.0 support

·      Ability to set time zone in Mobilyze case

·      Improved support for Android MMS on Samsung devices

·      Mobilyze is now a 64-bit application

 

 

NEW FEATURES

 

Time Zone settings

Mobilyze now offers users an easy way to set a time zone for a device.  By default, Mobilyze will use the time zone the examiner machine is set to.

 

Improved Group Message and MMS support

 

Mobile devices with the Android OS are able to choose how to store text messages independently.  In addition to text application, messages between groups of users are stored in different areas for Samsung devices than on LG devices.  Mobilyze now supports parsing from additional locations for message data in the latest release.

 

64-bit Application

As computers have added resources, including large memory capabilities, the operating system has needed the ability to take advantage of those resources.  Most systems are now 64 bit, and when combined with 64-bit applications users can best take advantage of these resources.  Mobilyze will now ship as a 64-bit application only.
