And it's easy with the help of Apple's backup solution in iTunes and also you can use a tool from the third party to get the job done. In this tutorial, we introduce you to the two fastest and most convenient solutions to backup and restore your iOS devices.

Create a backup of your iPhone in iTunes

iTunes is not only a huge store and convenient multimedia hub for PC and Mac but also an excellent backup tool for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. To restore your iPhone, simply install this Apple software on your computer and then connect your iOS device to your computer by a USB cable. 

Then iTunes automatically recognizes your iPhone and displays it in the Media Library view on the top tab. As soon as you click on the entry, the overview window of your iOS device opens. To create a copy of your system now, click "Back up now" in the Backups section. Finally, under "Devices" in the "Settings" (upper left corner of the window) under "Devices", check whether iTunes has also created the backup copy.

In addition to an iPhone or iPad backup, you can also synchronize your PC and iPhone so that the data is on the same level. To synchronize the files, select your iPhone again under "Devices" and confirm the synchronization in the lower right corner of the program window.
