How simple is the user interface of the software?
The user interface of the software is very simple and easy to use by anyone who has an iPhone irrespective of their technical proficiency. Let’s briefly discuss how to use the software to manage the data present in the Apple devices.
One great feature of iMazing that I personally like is you can access the Photos, messages, call history and other files in your iPhone by just connecting your mobile and the computer to the same WiFi network. But to transfer files and to take a backup, you need to connect your phone through a cable.
Once you connect your iPhone or other Apple device to your PC for the first time after installing iMazing, you will be getting the below backup screen which prompts you to take a backup first before proceeding further to manage your device.
After clicking the backup button, you need to select the Backup location, encryption method, backup archiving before starting the backup process. Click on the enable button to encrypt your backup by giving a password. The backup process starts, once you click on the done button after making all the selections.
Remember, if you are taking backup for the first time, it may take some time to complete. For me, it approximately took around 35 minutes to take backup of my 16 GB iPhone.
Once the backup process completes, you can see your iPhone displayed in the home screen where you can access the messages, photos, videos, music and other apps from your PC.
You can see the details of your Apple device and storage details in the home screen along with various other options that you can perform on your iPhone.
At the center of the home screen, you can find various options like Back Up, Quick Transfer, Restore a backup, transfer to another device, manage apps, update iOS, Restart or shutdown your iPhone and many more functions that can be performed on your iPhone.
Click on the desired option that you like to perform on your iPhone and a separate screen open for each option that you select.
I tried to move some files directly to my iPhone, so I selected the Quick Transfer option to move the files. Once the new window opens, you can drag and drop the files and folders that you like to move to your iPhone and then click the transfer button at the bottom.
After dragging and dropping the file there, you need to select the iPhone app that supports the target file and then click the transfer button. Then enter the name of the photo that you are transferring. It may take some time to transfer the file depending on the file size. For me, it took 30 secs to transfer a 50 Kb file.
You can also see all your iPhone apps in the home screen and access them just like you do on your iPhone. Select an app and it will display its contents on the right side of the screen.
So when I clicked on my Photos app, I could see all the photos displayed on the right-hand side of the screen. You can also see some options at the bottom of the screen which allows you to export or import photos between your PC and iPhone.
Similarly clicking on the message app will display all the messages on your iPhone. You have options to export them to your PC as a PDF file, text file, CSV file etc.
Clicking on the Apps, you get to see all the third-party apps that you have installed on your iPhone. You can then select each of the apps individually and copy them to your PC.
So in this way, you can completely access and manage all your iPhone files and apps from your PC. You can select any app and copy its content and save it on your PC in an appropriate format.
Clicking the help button at the top allows provides options that allow you to contact their technical support team or access their knowledgebase to learn how to use the software.
