Through our survey, over 79% iPhone users rely iPhone / iTunes / iCloud to store their important personal data. In order to help you extract useful photos, messages, notes and more from your backup, we composed this 2016 iPhone Backup Extractor Software Review for your reference.


In previous iOS 9 updates, people reported they lost some important data on their iPhone. Below are some examples we collected on Apple forum:

"I have lost some contacts after iOS 9 update please help, iPhone 5s, iOS 9" – Garylisa.

"My photos are missing after update please tell how to recover them, iPhone 6, iOS 9.2.1" – bharat

So after updating to the coming iOS 9.3 to get some new features, you may accidentally drop into the same situation - lose some data on your iPhone 6/6s, such as messages, contacts and photos. So before iOS 9.3 update, you’d better backup your iPhone, although there are some iPhone data recovery software you can use to recover your lost data from your iPhone if you accidentally lost something.

How to Backup iPhone 6 (Plus) and iPhone 6s (Plus)

Normally, to prevent your important data from losing by accident before iOS update, you can use iTunes and iCloud to create a backup.

By using iCloud, you can manually or automatically backup all of your iPhone data without using a computer. But iCloud storage is limited to 5GB for free. To backup without limit, you may need iTunes to help you by backing up your whole data and setting to a computer.

Of course, there are some more flexible and simple tools that you can use to backup only some specific items from your iPhone to computer without using iTunes or iCloud, which is suitable to save only the data you care about on your iPhone. And some of these tools can do what iTunes and iCloud can’t do. For example, AnyTrans enables you to backup only iPhone music to iTunes on computer.
