How to Backup & Restore App Data on iPhone, iPad Without iTunes

A guide on how to backup & restore App Data on iPhone, iPad without iTunes.

When you have an Apple device for every kind of work one depends on iTunes if one has iOS. The only problem with this is that it wastes a lot of the user’s time in the name of updating and everything that it does. It makes the user delete certain stuff in the name of updating and moreover anything that has been downloaded with a third-party in between, would never get stored in iTunes. So what does that leave us with? On Android phones, it is easier to save all the apps we like but it becomes very difficult when it comes to iOS and hence we need an alternative.
