AnyTrans for iOS: The Best Way to Manage Your iPhone’s Data

If you have been using an iOS device like an iPhone or iPad, you probably know that transferring files from your device to your computer or vice versa is not that easy. You need to sync your content with iTunes first and then use that app to send files to and from your iOS device. Luckily, with many data manager apps available out there, you no longer need to rely on iTunes.

AnyTrans for iOS is an excellent app to transfer files to and from your iOS devices. This app allows you to add new files to your iPhone and iPad, download files from your devices to your computer, and create full backups of your devices on your machine.

The following describes some of the features that this app has to offer.

Transfer All Your Data in a Single-Click

If you are looking to move all the data from your iOS device to somewhere, say to your computer, manually doing the task will take hours. An easier way to do that is to use AnyTrans’ one-click data transfer feature.
