“OK.. I don’t know if this subject exists currently, if it does my apologies.. My father has an old iPhone, 4 or 4s don’t remember which.. I think 4s. He doesn’t update much, or at all really, doesn’t have a steady computer, or one that he works on all the time; basically he’s all over the place. what I’m trying to do is set him up so that he backs up to the cloud, but to do that I have to update his phone.. Is it possible to just backup the iPhone, not sync, to a computer, lets say the one in his office, this way after upgrading to the latest os version, if necessary I can restore whatever contents are on his phone currently? Thanks in advance for listening.”
Read a post from iPhone forum and I found this post interesting. Now not all people like to sync their iPhone data to iTunes or iCloud because of the safety problem, especially after the celebrities nude photos hack. Many people will find other ways to protect and backup their iPhone. But how? How to backup iPhone data to a computer without syncing? In order to achieve that, you need the third party software to help you. There are dozens of such kind of third party software, here, I want to recommend one: iFonebox.
iFonebox is a professional and powerful iOS data recovery. Although it is a data recovery tool, it can help you backup and transfer all your iPhone data to the computer, including the deleted data like contacts, photos, messages, call history, notes, reminders, voice memos, safari bookmarks. Plus, it is much safer than iCloud when backing up iPhone data. Learn more about iFonebox.
