Backup iPhone issues in iTunes and iCloud

Backing up iPhone is necessary to prevent data loss before iOS 7.1/7 update, jailbreak and factory reset.

Surely iTunes and iCloud can back up and restore some data on your iPhone, but they're not so great: iTunes may ask you to sync or upgrade your iOS and wipe all the contents. What's more, iTunes can't selectively backup your data, it will takes you a few hours each time the iPhone backs up since it's doing an image backup. For iCloud backup, you should give up it if you use iPhone under iOS 6 or iOS 5.

Or if you want to backup iPhone (including iPhone 5s/5c/5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS) contacts, photos, call history, notes to your computer or to other iOS device, you will find that nice solutions are rare, since Apple doesn't allow you to use a digital cable to USB drive to transfer iPhone data to PC/Mac. It's taboo.
