people my lost some iPhone data, because of incompatible issue, or new iOS version isn’t stable ect. But when we backup our iPhone data before updating iPhone, thing will be much simple. So from this article, we’ll focus on teach you how to backup your iPhone data before updating it, then it will not erase all our iPhone data.

Backup iPhone Data on iTunes

iTunes is most people’s first choice when backup iPhone iPad data, now we can still use it here.

Launching your iTunes, connect your iPhone with PC. Then go to Files--Summary, tap on “Backup Now” on the right page, and confirm with “Backup”.

When finish backup, you can find your backup files from below folder address:

For Windows: C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup
For Mac ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/

Backup iPhone Data on iCloud

Also we can use iCloud to backup our iPhone data, when iCloud storage space is enough.

Connect your iPhone with Wifi, go to Setting--iCloud, log in it with your Apple ID and password.

Then turn on iCloud driver and related app button, then tap on “Backup” at the bottom, and confirm with “Backup Now”.

Backup iPhone Data with iRefone

If you only need to backup some of your iPhone data, not all of them, and you can choose third-party software iRefone to help you backup them selectively.

iRefone is an excellent iOS data recovery software, it can help us backup and transfer as well as recover more than 16 kinds of files, even we didn’t do any backup. Also it can help us recover lost data with three recovery mode, that is Recover from iOS Device, Recover from iTunes Backup and Recover from iCloud Backup.

Now you can download and install the free trial version to have a try.

Step 1. Run iRefone, connect your iPhone with PC. Tap on “Recover from iOS Device”, click “Start”.

Step 2. Now we’ll enter the new interface with many data icon and media icon that iRefone can recover, click “Message” icon for example, and it’ll be scanned by the software.

Step 3. Wait a few seconds for scanning, then you can preview and choose messages you need to backup, tap on “Recover to PC”.

Remark: if you have lost or deleted some of your iPhone data, don’t worry, you can restore them from your backups; if you have no backups, you can still use iRefone to help you retrieve them back. For related steps, you can refer to below article:
