The Find My iPhone feature helps to get your device back if your device is stolen. You can not completely prevent your iPhone from being stolen, but you can avoid your iPhone data being lost by backing up your iPhone to computer. The totally free iOS data transfer tool that can help you make it is EaseUS MobiMover Free. With MobiMover installed on your PC, you can transfer files like photos, videos, audios, contacts, messages, notes and more between iOS devices (iPhone/iPad in iOS 8 or later) or between iOS device and computer. Besides, MobiMover can also serve as a free iPhone content manager with its file management features. Follow the steps below to learn how to back up your iPhone 8/iPhone X for FREE.
Step 1. Connect your new iPhone X or iPhone 8 to your computer with a USB cable. Tap "Trust This Computer" on your iPhone screen if a pop-up asks. Run EaseUS MobiMover and go to the "Backup Manager" mode. Click "Backup" to start backing up iPhone X or iPhone 8 to your Window PC.
Step 2. MobiMover enables you to backup all files with a single click. Before getting started, you can change the default backup location by clicking on the "Select" at the bottom of the screen. After that, tick the box next to the "Select All" to start backing up.
Step 3. During the process of backup, don't disconnect your iPhone. Otherwise, you need to start it again.
Note: If you want to restore the backup to your iPhone, note that this will wipe out all the content, settings, and preference on your device and then replace it with what's in the backup. If this is not what you want, just use "Phone to PC" mode to transfer what you want to the PC for safekeeping.
