The most frequently-used backup tools for iPhone/iPad/iPod must be iTunes and iCloud. In Google or Bing, you will find many topics about these two tools and lots of troubles in using them also occur on most forums, like:

  • No enough iCloud storage to back up.

  • iCloud back up now option greyed out.

  • iTunes backup couldn't be completed.

  • iTunes is stuck in backing up my iPhone.

  • ...

As you meet with these cases, you may find an alternative to iTunes and iCloud. FonePaw iOS Data Backup & Restore can do a backup and restoring for your iPhone X/8/7 Plus.

It is able to create a complete and readable iPhone Photo Backup on your computer. It can scan out all your iPhone images, and offer you a chance to preview all found photos one by one before saving them. Usually, when you back up iDevice data via iCloud or iTunes, all contents on your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch will be backed up together. But this program works differently, it empowers you to manage and backup iPhone photos separately.
