Folks

Can someone recommend a backup software that back ups all the photos & iMessages message history to my windows PC? I need to clear up some space on the iPad to install 8.1

Thx

Not sure how I can access all my iMessages and photos within itunes when I want to look at them. Is there a way?

Looking for other sw suggestions

Thx

Just plug you phone into itunes and do the OS upgrade. That way it will not need the room like an OTA update. iTune will download the update to your computer and then apply it to your device.

if its not too late for me to chime in.
back up to itunes
once the backup is complete

click on file, device, iPad, transfer purchases. this will make sure all app updates and any content you purchased on the iPad gets transferred to itunes as well

by default, app updates and purchased stuff do not get backed up to itunes
anything synced from your itunes library to your iPad is not in the backups
