Be sure you have a back up plan for your iPhone. Rami Al-zayat//Unsplash

One time or another, we’ve lost a phone or had some files corrupted. This made us realize the importance of backing up files, apps and other important data onto a larger device like a PC or laptop. However, it's still not a common practice as it takes a lot of time and effort to go through each and every file to ensure that these are properly backed up.

Fortunately, the great minds of DigiDNA realized this and simplified the whole process of backing up through a go-to backup software. Now you can easily back up all your important data from your iPhone to your Mac or PC and even clone your old iPhone’s data to your new one without having to go through iTunes.

iMazing lets you back up and manage multiple devices so you can be in charge of your files. This iOS transfer tool lets you move files between iPhone to iPhone, iPhone to Mac or PC and vice versa.
