For this week’s giveaway, we’ve partnered with DearMob to offer MacRumors readers have a chance to win an iPhone 14 Pro and a lifetime licensed copy of DearMob iPhone backup software. While there are iPhone management tools available from Apple in the form of iCloud, Finder, and iTunes, DearMob goes beyond the tools integrated with iPhone Manager.
DearMob iPhone Manager is a robust application for iPhone backup, management and switching. Unlike iTunes or iCloud, you can selectively choose what you want to back up or transfer from your Mac to your iPhone and vice versa, with built-in encryption and built-in conversion tools to change file types.
You can transfer all kinds of iPhone and iPad files, such as photos, videos, movies, TV shows, songs, contacts, ringtones, books, documents, and PDFs, plus you can save app data. DearMob’s goal is to make it easy for anyone to manage an iOS device, import, export and manage files with useful customization options.
With the backup tool, you can back up everything on an iPhone or iPad, or choose to export specific categories like photos or movies. Backed up content can be migrated from iPhone to iPhone, even at the file level. So if you have a music collection on one device and want to transfer it to another, you can use DearMob. With full backups, you can perform a one-click restore for an iPhone or an iPad.
For photos, 100 4K photos can be transferred in about eight seconds and can handle thousands of photos in minutes, freeing up iPhone storage. You can even transfer photos by day, month, year, or album, turn Live Photos into videos, and convert HEIC photos to JPG. There are also tools to delete photos by media type, such as Recently Deleted, Hidden, and Selfies. Videos transfer just as quickly, and you can move video content from your iPhone to your Mac for storage purposes or transfer videos from your Mac to your iPhone for viewing on the go. The built-in conversion software will automatically convert any video into a type compatible with iOS devices.
File transfers can be done over WiFi or a USB connection, and the management tools come in handy if you have contacts, music, playlists, photos, and albums that need to be edited. You can export, add, create, modify, delete and edit all your content and export files by metrics like day, week, month, artist, folder and more. Contacts can be exported in various formats, and you can import videos, music, and eBooks, all of which will be converted to a file type readable by your device.
According to DearMob, the software uses military-grade encryption for photos, videos, contacts, and device backups to keep your data safe while you store or transfer it between devices. Local files can also be encrypted and password protected so that their content is inaccessible to someone who can access your computer.
