As an iPhone user, you must know iCloud . It’s a popularly used tool all over the world for backing up your data on iPhone. Apple provides 5GB storage space for free in iCloud which is enough for our daily use.
But in practical, iCloud is not convenient to use at all. Its function is not powerful to fulfill our requirements. For example, you cannot access iCloud backup files unless you restore your iPhone from it, and if you restore your iPhone from it, current data on your iPhone will be overwritten by the backup. Activities take place after the last backup may be lost.
But in some circumstances, we only need to review or restore some of the data instead of all, such as some photos, messages, contacts etc. It’s not necessary to retrieve all the backup. Do we have any other choices to satisfy that requirement?
Yes, of course, we have! Here I introduce you a very useful tool called D-Back.
