Apple users are nothing if not loyal. When it comes time to upgrade that phone (and it will, often) surveys show that over 90% of iPhone users will trade up to the newest model rather than switch to an Android.
A lot of that is familiarity. Apple prides itself on making their products easy to use across the board – except when it comes to the actual upgrade process. All too often, transferring your songs, photos, videos and even essential files means a frustrating trip through iTunes or iCloud – only to find you’ve forgotten to back something up or some file has gotten lost in translation.
It shouldn’t be that hard, and that’s why device management apps like iMazing have stepped in. If you’ve never used it before, it’s a one-stop-shop for file transfers that turns the necessary work of backing up your data into the simple drag-and-drop that it should be.
Music and photos take up a ton of most users’ storage space, and iMazing makes sure you can easily get them off your phone. You can easily take songs, video and other media and preserve their ID data as you move them onto your new device. Personal info like phone numbers and emails goes just as easily. Better still, it lets you select the info you need at a glance so you can clean up your phone as you update it.
Its uses are hardly confined to the occasional update, though. iMazing lets you keep better records of all your communication, letting you print and save text messages and chats with a simple click. You can move voicemails, call histories, contacts and documents between your phones or onto a PC or Mac – all without having to access an outside cloud service. It’s a great failsafe for any Apple user.
Right now, you can get a universal license for the iMazing iOS Device Manager for $5 off the previous sale price at just $14.99.
