Apple provided iPhone users with two methods, iTunes and iCloud, to back up their photos, music, contacts, notes, and iBook. The official iTunes software that we're all familiar with offers options to backup your iPhone from iPhone to a PC or Mac. However, iTunes and iCloud won't allow you to edit iPhone backup files from PC. Is there any way to edit iPhone backup file on Windows PC? The answer is yes.

There are plenty of alternatives to iTunes around, but only a few of them allows you to edit the backup file on Windows PC. Users who are on Windows 7/8/10 can easily backup iPhone without iTunes, and edit the backup files. You can even backup songs and messages from iPhone to PC, which is impossible with iTunes.

EaseUS MobiMover Pro, the professional iOS data transfer software, is able to backup all data, including music, videos, contacts, and messages from iPhone to PC directly. What's more, MobiMover allows you to edit the iPhone backup file in the folder that you selected to save the backups. Now let's take a look at how to backup iPhone and edit iPhone backup file.
