If it weren’t for the sake of security and warranty, every iPhone owner might already have jailbroken their devices for better customization, advanced entertainment, and more flexible data management.

Gradually, the jailbreak craze is cooling down starting from iOS 9. First, Apple’s increased security made Jailbreaking harder, and Secondly, today’s jailbreaking only offers small minor modifications, since many of the features provided via Cydia, were eventually copycatted into iOS, out-of-the-box.

However, since the iPhone storage reaches 128GB and 265GB, data inside iPhones has surged dramatically. For those who have an enormous amount of iPhone applications, photos, movies, video recordings, messages, etc. they face a harsh fact that the locked-down iOS file system restricts the freedom of data management, in both depth and in width, as listed below.

iOS Device Management General Problems:

 Un-viewable backup files – you don’t know what you are backing up or successfully backed up precisely.

  • Only one-way syncing pattern – you cannot move data from iPhone to computer. And syncing with duplication and data-erasing might trouble you from time to time.
  • Backup & Restore only in batch – you cannot decide which file to restore and which to exclude from a backup or restoration.
  • Unfriendly to iOS incompatible files – MKV, FLAC files failed to be transferred to iPhone/iPad as marked as “not supported”
  • Confined Apple app store – generally you can only install applications from Apple’s official app store
