Cellebrite’s Mobile Lifecycle Supports Release of the New iPhone 7 from Launch Day

Cellebrite Offers Content Transfer Solutions for New Handset Across 75,000 Retail Service Points Globally

PETAH TIKVAH, ISRAEL–(Marketwired – Sep 16, 2016) –  Cellebrite, the leading developer and provider of Mobile Lifecycle solutions, today announces that it is supporting the launch of the new iPhone 7 by offering fast, secure in-store content transfer for new owners of the industry’s latest smartphone.

Via Cellebrite’s in-store platforms, retail associates will be able to transfer a customer’s content from their old device to their new iPhone 7 handset. As part of the device lifecycle, operators and retailers will also be able to provide diagnostics for the new device.

The iPhone 7, which is available in-store on 16 September, is one of some 7,000 mobile devices for which Cellebrite provides point-of-sale transfer solutions. Cellebrite technology empowers retail associates to deliver fast, consistent service across more than 75,000 retail service points globally.

“New phone launches such as this have the potential to drive significant traffic for our customers – operators and retailers,” comments Yehuda Holtzman, CEO, Mobile Lifecycle at Cellebrite. He continues: “We are dedicated to making mobile device care easier and more efficient, including equipping sales associates with the tools they need to support new iPhone 7 owners from day one. This way, they can still deliver the same consistent service that customers expect during these peak periods.”

The new device will also be supported by Cellebrite’s Hybrid Content Transfer whereby productivity essentials, such as contacts are immediately transferred at the point of sale, while the more time-intensive task of moving large volumes of multimedia data is subsequently completed via Cellebrite’s self-service mobile app. This allows retail sales associates to meet each customer’s needs and effectively manage in-store traffic, especially during peak periods expected around the launch of the new iPhone 7.

Pakistan Press Foundation is concerned over the unlawful persecution of Eid and Bahgat

Pakistan Press Foundation (PPF) in a letter to Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, President of Egypt expressed concern over the unlawful persecution of Gamal Eid, director of the Arabic Network for Human Rights Information, and Hossam Bahgat, founder of the Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights.

PPF Secretary General Owais Aslam Ali in his letter urged the government of Egypt to remove the travel ban and asset freeze on Eid and Bahgat and end the order blocking reporting of the case, and provide normal legal access to their representatives.

According to International Freedom of Expression Exchange (IFEX), since February both Eid and Bahgat have not been allowed to travel out of the country without explanation or option of appeal. In the previous month, their properties were also frozen.

Eid and Bahgat have faced Case no. 173, the ‘foreign funding’ case, which has recently been re-activated. Both were schedule to appear in court this 20 April to defend themselves from possible charges of accepting foreign funding without authorization- charges that since an amendment to Egypt’s penal code in 2014, can carry a penalty of life imprisonment.

The re-activation of Case 173 and ongoing use of Law 84 are in contradiction with the constitutional rights now guaranteed to Egyptian citizens. Article 75 of Egypt’s 2014 constitution explicitly recognizes the right of non-governmental organizations in Egypt to exist and carry out their functions freely and without interference by agencies of the state, subject to no restriction save giving notification of their existence and demonstrating their transparent and non-military activity.

Banning Eid and Bahgat from traving and freezing their assets without a clear judicial charge or stated duration violates their constitutional rights as citizens.
