Why We don't Use iTunes or iCloud to Backup iPhone?
As all we know, each time you sync your iPhone with iTunes, it will automatically generate a backup file for all your contacts, pics, messages and other data. But what if your iPhone cannot appear in iTunes when you want to backup data, you don't have the Mac available at hand which has the iTunes you used to sync your iPhone, or even worse is that your iPhone is damaged, broken, lost, or stolen. Another important thing you should know is that iTunes backs up all the contents into unreadable database and files, which means you cannot read or view all the backed up files in iTunes. Moreover, Apple has claimed that iTunes will not sync contacts, calendars and other info in OS X Mavericks. You can only backup iPhone with iCloud for 5 GB free storage, and somtines you will lose data on iPhone. In such cases, what would you do to backup your iPhone contacts, camera roll, or text message to Mac?
