I was asked why do you need Mac to Analyze iDevices. The reason people ask is that they are under the impression that Macs are expensive. Some are yes, But, the Mac Mini is very affordable and one can use existing peripherals to connect. The second is that forensic tools that are created on the Mac platform are better suited to analyze Apple file types. Also all the tools I know of are very inexpensive as compared to windows based tools. The Mac can also be used to conduct exams on OS X systems as well. So, before you listen to other vendors, take the time to make an informed decision. There’s a lot of information on the web than can assist you in getting to know why Macs are better, oh yeah forgot, they run windows better also!
