Iphone question: Extract ALL data?

I need to know if anybody knows of a way, or if it is even possible to extract all data from an Iphone. By that I mean all emails, texts, notes, photos, contacts, phone logs, etc.

I'm an Android and Windows guy, so this is unfamiliar territory.

Let me explain why, so nobody thinks I am up to no good. A friend of mine, who was the cousin of a VERY good friend of mine passed away Wednesday from a suspected opioid overdose. There is some uncertainty whether this was an intentional suicide, accidental, or something more nefarious. I have been approached by my friend to see if I can get everything off of his phone to hopefully bring a little peace and closure to the family, and if anything fishy turns up to hand over to law enforcement.

6.7 quake strikes Anchorage Tsunami warning issued REVISED: 7.0

A large earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.7 struck Alaska near Anchorage early Friday morning, sending people fleeing from buildings and to safety beneath door jambs.

The epicenter was just north of Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, according to the Alaska Earthquake Center.

The tsunami warning center in Palmer has issued a warning for Southcentral Alaska including Kenai, Kodiak and the shores of Cook Inlet. Further bulletins are being released on

There were reports of power and phone outages in the region.

The earthquake shook buildings violently. At Anchorage Daily News in Midtown, it sent cracks up walls, damaged ceiling panels and flung items off desks and walls, including a computer monitor and a fire extinguisher

The earthquake was strong enough to knock items off store shelves and rattle homes throughout the region.

Too cool! This guy actually owns a real Apollo Guidance Computer

They are restoring it right now for the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing.

One hell of a BBQ

A GIANT cow which stands more than 6ft 4ins tall and weighs the same as a family hatchback is so big it's been saved from the chop.

Knickers, a seven-year-old Holstein Friesian, is more than twice the size of the rest of the herd in Myalup, Western Australia.

The bovine behemoth stands head and shoulders above other farm beasts and weighs in at an incredible 1.4 tonnes (3,083lbs).

Owner Geoff Pearson told Perth Now that Knickers' size could even save its life, as Knicker's is too big for the local abattoir.

Butchers say the giant would produce around 1,400 lbs of trimmed 'saleable' beef - enough for 450 cuts of steak and 370kg of mince.

Holstein-Friesians are a dairy breed and normally weigh in at about 1,500 pounds and stand about 4ft 1oins tall.

Even the breed's bulls only reach just 5ft 10ins and weigh 2,200lbs.

1st image from InSight

Mind you, this is from behind the dust cover, so it's muddy.

We're landing on Mars Monday

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — Mars is about to get its first U.S. visitor in years: a three-legged, one-armed geologist to dig deep and listen for quakes.

NASA’s InSight makes its grand entrance through the rose-tinted Martian skies on Monday, after a six-month, 300 million-mile (480 million-kilometer) journey. It will be the first American spacecraft to land since the Curiosity rover in 2012 and the first dedicated to exploring underground.

NASA is going with a tried-and-true method to get this mechanical miner to the surface of the red planet. Engine firings will slow its final descent and the spacecraft will plop down on its rigid legs, mimicking the landings of earlier successful missions.

That’s where old school ends on this $1 billion U.S.-European effort .

Once flight controllers in California determine the coast is clear at the landing site — fairly flat and rock free — InSight’s 6-foot (1.8-meter) arm will remove the two main science experiments from the lander’s deck and place them directly on the Martian surface.

No spacecraft has attempted anything like that before.

The firsts don’t stop there.

One experiment will attempt to penetrate 16 feet (5 meters) into Mars, using a self-hammering nail with heat sensors to gauge the planet’s internal temperature. That would shatter the out-of-this-world depth record of 8 feet (2 ½ meters) drilled by the Apollo moonwalkers nearly a half-century ago for lunar heat measurements.

The astronauts also left behind instruments to measure moonquakes. InSight carries the first seismometers to monitor for marsquakes — if they exist. Yet another experiment will calculate Mars’ wobble, providing clues about the planet’s core.

It won’t be looking for signs of life, past or present. No life detectors are on board.
