Backing up data is probably the most overlooked aspect of using a digital device, but is undoubtedly the most important.

The main reason being, without your data, your device is literally of no use except for a few pre-built apps that work offline. Other than that, it’s majorly dependent on your data. So, backing up data is essential to ensure if your device gets wiped out, you still have your data saved somewhere to bring it back.

Besides, it helps you:

  • Get quick access to your files.
  • Transfer files from one device to another
  • Gain peace of mind ✌

There’s iCloud that does a good job of backing up; however, it’s not the most advanced and lacks a ton of good features compared to the ones I’ll be listing in this article. These backup tools for the iPhone and iPad allow you to do more than just storing your data.

So, without any further ado, let’s jump straight into the list.

It lets you import, export, add and even remove duplicates in just a few clicks, and that too for free. You can manage numerous things, including contacts, messages, photos, videos, apps, and bookmarks.
