A friend has never backed up her iPhone. She does not have a personal PC, as this phone is her 'life'. Because she does not have any type of computer at home, she does not want to use the one in the office - she has lots of very personal information on the phone. I called Apple and found on line it is possible to backup an iPhone to an external drive. - My questions are, how to. - Since iTunes 'snoops' so much on your device, would it be possible to backup the phone to an external drive without been 'tagged' by iTunes? - In the backup process, iTunes may save some information to the medium (the office PC used in the backup). - The easiest would be to just backup personal information to an external drive and call it a day (will be much better than no backup at all). Thanks.
