Your iPhone 6/ 6s (Plus) carries all your cherished and irreplaceable digital possessions like contacts list, years' worth of messages, photos, Email addresses, etc. However, they could easily go missing on account of a theft or your unintentional action. To ensure that the catastrophe of data loss won't befall you, creating local copies of the data is always a good idea, and one decent way is to back up iPhone 6/6s (Plus) to a Windows 7 computer.

To get the job done, you can rely on some official tools released by Apple, or turn to other iPhone-to-PC files backup solutions from third-party vendors. In this article we've collected two top utilities to help you backing up iPhone 6/ 6s (Plus) data to Windows 7 to keep anything safe: iTunes and FoneLab. Let's jump in.
