I need to copy my music, photos, messages, and whatever else I can from my iPhone to my computer. Is there a free app that will let me do this?

If you are on a Mac or PC, you can use the program iMazing. Unfortunately it's not free (there is a trial download, but it is very limited...really useful only to test it out). I think the free version can make a backup. But not perform a 'restore.'
It used to cost $29, but it looks like they raised the price to $44. :(

Yes thats what I was using actually. $44 is a bit expensive. :( It did do a full backup, but the trial version only lets you transfer a limited amount of files only. I was hoping tere was a free alternative that can do the same.

I don't mean to sound like a smart a$$ but iTunes would be my choice. Let me just say, I think iTunes overall is a pain in the a$$, BUT, for doing backups of my device (outside of iCloud backups) it works just fine and I also periodically copy the photos directly onto my PC and then back them up myself to my NAS box.

Music doesn't bother me, it's all in Spotify.
