About dr.fone for iOS
Now that we’ve covered all of the different methods which you can use not only how to sync Outlook calendar with iPhone but also how to back up the calendar from your device, then let’s take a look at the other features which dr.fone has to offer.
iTunes to Android.
This is by far one of the best features which dr.fone – Phone Manager (iOS) has to offer. With it, you can transfer media which is stored in your iTunes library onto an Android device. This removes any restrictions which iTunes previously placed on your data transfers, and if you are moving from the iOS platform to Android, you no longer have to worry about compatibility issues.
Removing Duplicate Files.
If you want to save space on your device, then the best thing to do is to clear out data which isn’t necessary (this includes junk files). With dr.fone, you are able to remove duplicate photos as well as duplicate music tracks. With consideration to how music files are fairly large, this can prevent you from having to remove more than you have to!
Backup and Restore.
With dr.fone – Phone Backup&Restore (iOS), you can keep all of your data backups in one place and more importantly, if you have to restore the backup, you can use dr.fone to do that too. If you’ve ever experienced data loss and you know how irritating it can be to lose valuable data, then this is something worth keeping in mind.
As you can see, dr.fone is a one of a kind program and is the perfect program to fulfill all of your data management needs when it comes to your iOS device.
The next program that we’re going to cover is AnyTrans. Below are some of the main features which AnyTrans has to offer and which are the exact reason you should check it out yourself.
Have you recently purchased a new mobile phone and didn’t want to spend hours manually transferring data? Not a problem. With AnyTrans, you can simply connect both of your devices to the computer, and within minutes, your data will be transferred to the new device.
Nobody wants to spend hundreds just to listen to their favorite songs on the go. For most people, this isn’t something they can afford to do, and because of that, when you use AnyTrans, you are able to download your favorite music and videos. With the built-in media downloader, you can download media from over 900 websites.
With the AnyTrans iCloud Manager, you can manage all of the data which you have stored on your iCloud account. This allows you to remove any older iCloud backups which aren’t necessary and ultimately, have more space available on your iCloud account.
Similar to how you can use the iCloud Manager feature to manage your iCloud data, you can use the File Explorer feature to manage the data which is stored on your iPhone. This allows you to remove data that is no longer needed.
On top of being able to use AnyTrans to sync Outlook calendar with iPhone, you can use the program for so much more.
