iPhone Backup: Backup iPhone to Computer

-- Monday, October 23, 2017
I am sure that most of you have suffered a lot from the regret of forgetting backing up your iPhone 8/7/SE/6s/6/5s after losing precious data, so do I. Take me for example, I was trying to transfer photos from iOS to computer for later usage. However, my laptop was broken down and I felt extremely regret because some of the data in it are difficult to get another copy now. So I keep a habit of backing up my iDevice from time to time.

iOS Backup & Restore is a great program that is good at backing up iOS data. Data like music, videos, photos, contacts, messages, call history, etc. can all be backed up from iPhone to computer.

Below is the easy to use guide for you to backup iPhone data to computer. Download iOS Backup & Restore on your computer and have a try. Here, I will show you two different ways to back up your iPhone files:

Note: The steps to back up your iPhone 8/7/SE/6s/6s Plus/6 data to iCloud are easy. But the only shortcoming of this backup way is that with iCloud, it is not very easy to restore the data one by one selectively. But iOS Backup & Restore, instead, allows you to back up and restore iPhone data selectively or totally as you wish.

Done. You can backup your iPhone to computer with iOS Backup & Restore within 2 simple steps. This excellent tool also allows you to transfer data with similar steps. What you need is just to download it on your PC. It allows you to transfer files from iPad to computer as a backup as well.
