Why do you backup iPhone messages to computer?

iPhone text messages are one of the most valued treasures for our users. Undoubtedly, it's true. In the same way of keeping many photos and videos that recorded the momentary happy memories in the form of visualization, messages preserve your conversations with friends, families, beloved ones, business partners, clients and everyone you care for in the form of texts. All in all, messages should be put on the top list in carefully protecting them from being accidentally lost or deleted. So, we suggest you backup iPhone messages to computer on a regular basis.

What's the best messages backup software for iPhone?

Speaking of iTunes, the only iPhone to PC connection software that Apple introduced to the market, offers a free way to save iPhone messages to computer.

As such, it seems that a good iTunes alternative is much required. EaseUS MobiMover Free happens to meet the requirement. This free iPhone transfer software can create a viewable backup for iPhone messages in .html format, which enables users to open and view the backup on a webpage.
