The new low-level extraction method utilizes Elcomsoft proprietary extraction agent, enables full access to the file system and includes the ability to extract sandboxed app data, system databases and other information available in the file system.

Elcomsoft will continue researching the vulnerability used in this release to expand the amount of extractable information, with keychain decryption and iOS 16.4 support planned for the next update.
