Three ways for you to back up iPhone without iCloud.
If you back up your iPhone to iCloud, you need to make sure there is enough iCloud space to save all the data and settings and there is a stable network connection on your device. Thus, if your iPhone content exceeds 5GB, you need to buy extra storage to back up your iPhone with iCloud successfully, or you will encounter the issue "This iPhone cannot be backed up because there is not enough iCloud storage available."
Besides, even if you backed up iPhone to iCloud successfully, you can only access the backup when you restore a device from the iCloud.
Given that, many of you may want to back up iPhone without iCloud. If so, read on to check how to back up iPhone without iCloud in 3 ways.
If you are looking to back up an iPhone, iPad, or iPod without iCloud, the alternative choice for you is to back up iPhone to computer. And there is an official way to do it, which is to use iTunes. Similar to iCloud, iTunes could make a backup of almost all data and settings on your iOS device. But instead of cloud storage, iTunes stores your iPhone backup on computer. Thus, you don't need to worry about storage issues.
To back up iPhone to computer:
Step 1. Connect your iPhone to your computer and wait for iTunes to launch automatically.
Step 2. Unlock your iPhone and trust the computer.
Step 3. In iTunes, click the "Device" tab, choose "Summary", and click "Back Up Now" to start backing up your iPhone without iCloud. (Check what to do if iPhone is not showing up on PC.)
Although you can access iTunes backup location on your PC, you can't view the details in the backup and should not edit or relocate the backup or the files may be corrupted.
If you are using a Mac running macOS Catalina and later, iTunes is no longer available and Finder does the device backups. Therefore, if you are going to back up iPhone to Mac, use Finder instead.
If you prefer to back up iPhone to computer without iTunes or iCloud, you can use the iPhone data transfer tool - EaseUS MobiMover to get things done. With this tool, you will be able to back up your iPhone photos, videos, contacts, messages, music, and more all at once or selectively.
Notes: If you want to make a copy of your iPhone files and view them from the computer whenever you want, use the data transfer feature instead of backup.
To back up iPhone without iCloud:
Step 1. Connect your iPhone to your computer running Windows system with a USB cable > Select the "Backup Manager" from the left panel > Select "Backup" to proceed. Step 2. Tick the box next to "Select All" to back up all files from iPhone to computer > Set the destination on computer > Click on "One-Click Backup" to start the backup process. Step 3.
