Click on “Air-Trans” at the top of the interface and click on “Start Transfer”. Then, the program will begin to detect your device. If the notification “*** PC wants to connect to your iPhone” pops up, just click on “Allow”.

After your iPhone gets detected, click on your iPhone’s icon for connection. Then, you can find 4 tags at the top and they are respectively “ PHOTOS”, “MUSIC”, “VIDEOS”, and “FILES”. Go to the tag which the data you want to back up belongs to and tick off the items to transfer.

Back up iPhone via iCloud

Although iCloud keeps being complained about its defects such as the slow speed, limited storage, and backup failure for no reason, there are still many people who are using it and many people who want to know how to use it. Since iCloud is also a means for wireless iPhone backup, I might as well explain the use of it in details.

1.       Go to “Settings” on your iPhone.

2.       Tap on your ID and tap on “iCloud”.

3.       Toggle on the applications you want to back up.

4.       Tap on “iCloud Backup” and in the opened panel, tap on “Back Up Now”.

Then, the process will get started, and by comparison with IOTransfer, it will possibly take several hours to get completed and there is a high chance that the backup gets failed if there is no enough iCloud storage left.
