Each year Apple brings an awful amount of new and innovative features both in their products lineup and software iterations. However, if you were to ask me, the beauty and sophistication of Apple products grossly overshadow its backup process and file management system. Yeah, we're talking about iTunes.
Using iTunes is not only tedious but it's also a lot complicated — a task which is not for the faint-hearted. Plus, not to mention the limitations that come with it. Okay, I might be a bit exaggerating here, but you get the drift.
Thankfully, iTunes is not the only file manager software for iPhone and iPad users. DearMob has addressed the above issues and has come up with a file manager for iPhones. The app which goes by the name of DearMob iPhone Manager is available for both PC and Mac and lets you seamlessly transfer files and manage your backups. And complementing the app is an equally clean and fuss-free interface.
What's more, using the this manager is as easy as 1-2-3. All you need is to do is plug the phone into your PC and then forget all about iTunes. Excited? I bet you are.
So, let's see some of the best features of DearMob iPhone Manager.
First and foremost, let's speak about device backups. The DearMob iPhone manager has a neat interface for backing up your device data. Interestingly, you can also encrypt your phone data.
All you need to do is click on the Back Up Now button and that's it. Depending on the amount of data on your phone, the backup will take anywhere between 10-20 minutes.
Interestingly, you can also restore a previously saved backup to your phone effortlessly. Similar to the restoration process, the time taken will depend on the amount of data.
2. Seamless Photo Transfers
It's no secret that the cameras of iPhones can capture some of the best pictures. This also means that we usually end up taking tons of pictures. But as luck would have it, expandable storage is not an option for iPhone users and over time, these pictures can turn out to be a huge issue. That's when the Photo Transfer feature of the DearMob iPhone manager comes in handy.

3. Sync Music Tracks and Videos
Any iPhone user will happily admit that transferring music tracks to the phone is quite a task and the same can be said about videos as well. Though this complicated process is somehow not a big issue now, thanks to the insane number of music streaming apps. However, if you are someone who prefers offline music, the Music Manager option of the iPhone Manager will soon be your new BFF.
With it, transferring files is simple. Just select the files and drop them into the Music Manager window. A click on Sync and all your music woes will be solved. What's commendable about this app is that the data sync is fast and quick.
The same process holds for videos as well. Simply drag and drop the selected files and hit the Sync button. That's it, the complicated process of video transfer solved in a jiffy. Additionally, if a video format is not supported by the phone, the app gives you permission to convert the format as well.
