Cellebrite at the Apple Store

I was at my local Apple Store this afternoon, and I happened to notice a pair of Cellebrite devices sitting on the Personal Setup table. My only exposure to these devices was through reports that law enforcement agencies would use these devices to download the data from your phone during traffic stops. In fact, it was those reports that caused me to change my iPhone settings to require a passcode immediately upon sleep; the Cellebrite device is unable to access any data from a locked iOS device and the only way to lock your device is to set it to automatically lock when the power button is pressed.

In any case, the devices work with more than just iOS devices, and presumably are present in the Apple Store so that people upgrading from a different phone can copy over vital information to their new iPhones. Still, the devices stick out like a sore thumb compared to the iPods, iPhones, iPads, and Macs on the adjacent tables (it’s one ugly device).
