this is a very important problem.

As consultant in a legal proceedings, I have an audio file created by voice recorder of Apple. The duration of this file is only 20 seconds long; there is the suspect that the original file was 30 seconds long and that the first 10 second was cutted. I should prove it. My instrument is Sonic Visualizer, due to I can see all frequency graph; and Exiftool, due to I can see all meta of file. Exiftool don’t help me (the meta of a genuine Voice file is the same of a cute file by Quick Time). The question is:

In the frequency audio graph there is a particular characteristic / silent sort period / device “signature” / something else at the beginning of a voice file, which is present in all file produced by the recorder of iPhone?

Thank you very much!

    The only way to determine this is to obtain an iPhone and do some test recordings. That way you will be able to see if there is a characteristic signature at the start of each recording. Unfortunately this will be firmware and o/s dependent, so you will need to know the exact firmware of the phone that made the original recording. – Mark Sep 30 '19 at 12:29
