Using iTunes & iCloud to Backup iPhone before iOS 14/13/12 Upgrade?

Not Enough!
A good habit to backup iPhone fully or selective backup iPhone can help people avoid the most suicidal risk of this information age - data loss. But the tools we pick also matter a lot. Apple advocates people to use their comprehensive iPhone backup services - iTunes and iCloud - to get the most perfect and seamless iPhone backup possible, wired and wirelessly. However, it might be better for Apple to put an illustrative purposes only disclaimer aside its service, since they doesn't completely prevent data loss on one hand, and bring up "data erasing/replacing" problem and "backup taking forever" issue on another hand. These loopholes need to be noted and addressed.

iTunes Problems with iOS Backup

1. The top defect of iTunes for iOS 12 backup is its absence of specific file backup utility. iTunes only allows users to get full device backups.
Instead of letting users transfer and back up files and categories individually, iTunes adopts the idea of syncing iOS data with iTunes library. And this is where the data erasing issue comes out on your iOS device. Since many of a time, you are updating/adding photos/songs on your iOS devices not from iTunes, syncing with old iTunes library will only make you replace and lose new data.

2. iTunes can only be synced with one computer restriction will also lead to data erasing if you insist syncing with a new iTunes library.

3. iTunes backup iPhone location is in system disk and is troublesome to change. System Disk storage full issue can easily result to your iTunes backup failure. The extreme circumstance is that if your computer was hacked or affected by virus, ransomware, data saved in system disk C: cannot be formatted but will have to reinstall.

4. iTunes purchased content cannot be exported to other devices.

6. Others including possible iTunes won't backup issue, contacts data missing, ringtone missing, iPhone connection errors, iTunes won't restore iPhone, iTunes errors.

iCloud Problems with iOS Backup

1. Poor internet connection can hugely interfere the cloud backup process and lead to failure, glitches, iCloud backup taking forever, backup can not complete.

2. The limited 5GB free backup storage is not enough to backup your storage hogs - videos, photos, songs, messages, voice memos etc. And the 5GB storage is per Apple ID. If you have an iPhone, an iPad, a Macbook, the Cloud storage will be split up for these three. You would better wisely choose important data for wireless backup and make good use of the limited 5GB storage space. You may also run into iCloud photo sharing issue, iCloud missing contacts, etc.

Compared with Apple's native iTunes and iCloud backup iPhone solutions, you still need another iOS iPhone backup software - DearMob iPhone Manager to complete the backup circle by filling up all the loopholes that iTunes and iCloud remain unsolved.
