iExplorer : Copy or Backup Files from iPhone or iPad

Having a powerful camera built inside our smartphones has changed the way we snap pictures today. Because of high resolution multi-lens cameras in latest iPhone, we can snap great quality pictures whenever we want. But this habit has also lead many of us using up all the storage space available on the iPhone. Surely, you can extend the  storage space using iCloud but it is much better to have local storage available in case you end up in a location without any data or WiFi connectivity.

One way to ensure that you always have ample storage space on your iPhone or iPad is to use iExplorer and copy all the files to your computer as backup. iExplorer is a Windows and Mac application that can act like a complete iPhone management software. The software also supports other iOS based devices such as iPad and iPod. In just one-click it can copy all of your files from iPhone including music, videos, pictures, and even text messages to your computer.


In addition to backing up files, it allows you to backup and restore app’s settings, voice messages, text messages, address book contacts, calendar events, reminders, notes and more. You can archive all of your messages and search through them at any later date. It can even read the files stored on your iCloud storage but iCloud is supported only on macOS.

iExplorer does not require any special permissions as it works using the Apple iTunes connection. Whether you iPhone is jailbroken or not, it works great in both cases. But you do not have to have a jailbroken iPhone for it to work. All the features work in both cases. It makes things so much easier when backing up your files or copying data between your computer and your iPhone.
