iMazing from DigiDNA was created an alternative to iTunes’ integrated data sync features. Since macOS Catalina, Apple moved these features from iTunes into the Finder. However, it is as buggy and limited as ever.
iMazing offers everything iTunes could do for iOS device management in a simple and clean interface, as well as amazing new capabilities.
iPhone and iPad backup
Easily keep up-to-date local backups of your iPhone and iPad with iMazing. Set a schedule with iMazing and the app will automatically back up your device wirelessly, on daily, weekly or monthly schedules of your choosing.
You can save backups directly to your Mac or PC or connected hard drive, and encryption is both supported and encouraged. You can restore your backups wholesale or dig into history and browse the entire filesystem. So if there’s just one file you need, you can get that out without waiting for an entire backup to restore to your phone.
Save your text message conversations
iMazing supports exporting SMS, iMessage and even WhatsApp conversations. You can browse all your conversations through the iMazing app interface, including read receipts and all attachments.
If you have sentimental conversations you want to keep forever, use iMazing to easily print or export to a file. You can save as a PDF with the familiar message bubble layout, or Excel/CVS for processing, or basic plaintext. Similarly, save all your sent voice messages, videos and photos in one click.
Simple data transfer
Import and export music, videos, ringtones, ebooks, apps and more with a simple drag and drop UI. Don’t mess around with Apple’s music syncing: copying a folder of songs to your phone takes just a couple of clicks with iMazing.
Use iMazing to easily manage the apps installed on your iOS device, and archive them for safekeeping on your computer whilst saving space on your device. You can even transfer the data of apps, like moving game saves between kids’ iPads.
