iMazing enables you to quickly transfer data between your iOS devices, move files between your iPhone/iPad and your computer, make smarter backups, only restore backup items you want instead of the whole thing, extract iTunes backup files so you can view the content and selectively import files, and so much more. In one sentence: With iMazing, managing your iOS device data is a breeze.
If you’re an avid iPhone/iPad user, I highly recommend you get iMazing because it’ll be a time-saver and life-saver as well if you set automatic backup with the app. It all comes down to convenience when handling files saved on your iPhone, iPad, and personal computer. However, if you’re someone who’s used to iTunes and doesn’t mind taking a bit of extra time sorting out files on your device, iMazing won’t add much value to your life. I’d say just stick with iTunes and make sure to make regular backups.
is an iOS device management application that runs on a PC or Mac machine. The app aims to help iOS users (like you and me who have an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch) transfer, backup, and manage files between your mobile device and your personal computer without using iTunes or iCloud.
Think of the iMazing app as iTunes without the media purchase function
. It’s also much more powerful and convenient than iTunes. For example, with iMazing, you can export and print iMessages; directly transfer data from an old iOS device to a new one; extract specific data like photos, videos, notes, messages, call histories, etc. from iTunes backup files; and a whole lot more. These are features that iTunes can only dream of.
Is iMazing Safe?
Yes, it is. I installed and ran the app on my early-2015 MacBook Pro (macOS High Sierra 10.13.2). A scan using BitMedic Antivirus found iMazing free of any virus or adware. During installation, I didn’t receive any risk warning from Apple about the app. So, it’s perfectly safe from an antivirus point of view.
On the operational level, the app is also very safe to use. When deleting or erasing content, there’s always a kind notification to make sure you understand what you are doing and offers a second-step confirmation. I’d recommend you backup your iOS device with iTunes just in case. These days, backups are gold.
