Reincubate Relay show Wi-Fi of iOS data

Collection of data from iOS devices

ricloud provides extraction and monitoring of many types of iOS and app data.

The API provides access to iPhone and iPad files and data via iCloud, or via a Wi-Fi or USB connection to an Apple device. Data from local devices is provided through an embeddable, white-label relay agent for Windows and macOS.

Call history data for CRM applications

The API can provide call records from any normal call or FaceTime call made on an iOS device, as well as any third-party apps which support CallKit, including WhatsApp, Skype, FaceTime and many others.

Call history data includes information on incoming, outgoing and missed calls, along with duration and contact data, which integrates well with CRM, billing and monitoring systems.

Message data for compliance & monitoring

ricloud can automatically aggregate messaging data from an organisationʼs mobile devices for ingestion into compliance or monitoring tools. The API makes this easy, by providing messaging data in the same format across all apps, so itʼs possible to ingest iMessage, SMS, WhatsApp or WeChat data using the same code-base.

ricloud includes forensics-grade undeletion of previously erased content and messages. This suits compliance, monitoring use-cases well, where understanding or recovery of deleted content is critical.

Automatic synchronisation & backup over Wi-Fi

ricloud is able to synchronise data wirelessly in your office or organisation using a Wi-Fi network, ensuring that data can be synchronised reliably on a regular basis. Itʼs also possible over USB, but a USB connection isnʼt necessary.

Using the ricloud API, organisations can schedule automated backups or synchronisation of their iOS devices and data.

With support for data collection over Wi-Fi and USB, ricloud lets users avoid storage limitations traditionally associated with iCloud access. Of course, itʼs also possible to use iCloud and Wi-Fi collection simultaneously through ricloud.

Real-time iCloud data access

iCloud refers to a variety of distinct storage and synchronisation mechanisms that Apple uses, including iCloud backups, iCloud Photo Library, Continuity, MobileMe, Find My iPhone, CloudKit, CallKit and others. ricloud provides access to all varieties of iCloud data, and can go beyond the limitations of iCloud backup data, by providing access to more powerful feeds of real-time data.

The API supports all core iPhone and iPad data types across all iOS versions on all devices, as well as dozens of third party apps. This includes call history, browsing data, photos and videos, and messages from a range of apps, and the API normalises their feeds, so that data from multiple apps of a similar type can be consumed in the same way.

Easy and interruption-free

The API makes it easy to collect iOS data, and makes it simple for clients to work with, without worrying about changes to data formats. Data is provided in easy to consume JSON feeds, which use consistent formats across apps of similar types.

We're committed to maintaining support for contemporary and past app data formats, and have a solid track record in this space, having built the world's first product to access iOS data in 2008, and been first to support major changes such as those introduced in iOS 9 and iOS 12.
