Reliable Software for iPhone SMS Transfer

Ada updated on Feb 15, 2020 to iPhone Data Transfer | How-to Articles

There is a lot of software for instant communications. However, in many formal occasions like when we need to send an employment notification to a candidate, communicate with an important client, inform the colleague of a significant meeting or get a special instruction from the boss, we use SMS as a better alternative. What's more, in daily lives, when we send a birthday blessing to our friends or express love to families, we might still use SMS. Thus SMS may keep important information and record some important moments and the need to back up SMS may happen from time to time. 

Unlike the Android mobile phones which back up SMS to Windows PC by directly connecting a mobile phone to PC through a USB cable. iOS system is a relatively closed system. Data transmission process between Apple and non-Apple devices can be more complicated. In the early time, SMS backup can be done through iCloud or iTunes, but you can't view SMS content in the backup files. If you want to read SMS, you need to import SMS backup files into your phone. The appearance of EaseUS MobiMover brings improvements to cover such needs. MobiMover is a software that allows you to back up SMS to your PC through a USB cable and read SMS on PC. The following steps will show you how to use MobiMover to back up SMS. 

In addition to SMS, MobiMover still supports you to export photos/videos/music/books from iPhone to PC, or in the vice versa, transfer files from PC to iPhone without iTunes. 

Step 1. Use a USB cable to connect your iPhone to your computer. When a pop-up asking you whether to trust this computer appears, click Trust to continue. Then start EaseUS MobiMover and click "Phone to PC".
