How to Back Up iPhone SMS to PC

“I need to back up SMS on my iPhone to a computer. I searched many forums, but haven’t found a way. Does anyone have an idea to help me back up iPhone SMS to PC? I’m waiting online for a solution. Your prompt advice will be much appreciated.”

You must be talking about the problem that most iPhone users have ever come across, and it has happened to me too. At first, I tried iTunes, but it seemed to back up all the data to an unknown location on my computer. Then I searched the internet for the iTunes backup location and found the backup finally in the disk C of my computer. While, a new problem came to me again. I can’t view the iTunes backup, they are shown in unreadable codes.

Disappointed by iTunes, I continued to search for the solution to view iPhone SMS on PC, then I found Leawo iOS Data Recovery, it is mainly a data recovery software program for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, but it is also equipped with data backup and transfer function. Then I downloaded the free trial version to use, it turned out to be perfect. With use of the software, all my iPhone messages and many other data could be previewed by me and I chose the messages to output to my local computer, it’s very fast. Moreover, I found that the tool can be used to recover deleted data from iOS devices, so I decided to put it aside for greater use in case of data loss in the future.
