Most of the iPhone users are excited about the release of new mobile operating system - iOS 11 and they can't wait to upgrade their device to the newest version of iOS. Since iOS upgrade may sometimes lead to unexpected data loss, so it is very dangerous to perform this operation without any backup of the data stored on iPhone. There's also the possibility that you might lose the valuable text message during the upgrade process. These messages could be the important conversations between you and your friends, families, and colleagues. So it is necessary and essential to do the iPhone text message backup before iOS upgrade.

This freeware allows users to backup more than 10 types of files without limits and saves them to the computer in a readable form.
