Backup iOS Data before Upgrading or Jail-breaking

Apple's iOS 7 makes its debut today, and many iOS device users are planning to get their hands to this massively overhauled operating system.

Before you upgrade or jailbreak your iOS devices like iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, don't forget to backup your iOS data from loss because you never know what will happen when upgrading or jailbreaking your device.

For example, upgrading to an old iOS version may result in deletion of all multimedia tracks as well as pictures in the Camera Roll.

Although Apple claims that their beta testers have been putting iOS 7 through its paces for months, but better safe than sorry. If you are intending to turn your devices into iOS 7, be sure to copy all your files from loss.

But how to backup iOS files? Editor here recommend you two methods: save iOS data with iTunes backup or backup iOS device data with FoneLab for iOS.

But we highly recommend you the second way.


FoneLab for iOS can recover iPhone data (some data you may delete before, but this software can find them back!) from iOS devices. Backup data with iTunes allows you just save current files of iOS devices.
