AnyTrans – Best iPhone Backup Tool

AnyTrans provides you with the best way to save your iPhone iPad content just in the right place, in case of data disappearing. With it, you can backup your whole iDevice within one click, and also make a detailed backup plan.

iPhone has taken a big part of our lives, and it also carries more and more vital data about us, contacts, messages, photos, etc. Therefore iPhone data protection will seem more and more necessary, because data losing happens, on every day, to every user, due to various factors, mistakenly deletion, iOS upgrading, jailbreak, water damaging, etc.

But what is the best way to protect iPhone data? Back it up! Backup iPhone regularly would be better. Because backup it now would just cover the existed data by far. As long as it is used, it will generate more new data.

But how to backup iPhone regularly? iTunes would require you do it manually, every time. It would be bothering and forgettable. iCloud does provide us the automatic way to backup iPhone regularly, as long as it is charging and WiFi-connected.

But every time iCloud backs up, it would create a new backup folder. It would be very wasteful for your iCloud storage. Besides, with more and more backup files, it would be very hard for you to know which file contains what you want when restoring, because iCloud does not enable users to view backup files.
