Hello,

I have a question about iTunes backup.

We have 7 iOS devices and I was wondering what is the best way to back them up to one iMac ? Can all this be done under a single user, or do we have to have separate user accounts for each iOS device backup?
Are there any better ways to backup multiple devices?

I appreciate any assistance
Thank you

Itunes will list each separately so you should not have a problem. You could not worry about it and let each of them back up to the cloud.
This is good to know. I am actually backing some of them to the iCloud, but I am running out of space and I do not feel like dropping 5-10$ a month to just backup several devices hence I am looking for a much faster and local solution.

No doubt you would have to buy more storage.

I just back up my device once every two weeks with iTunes. It is faster without a doubt.

Good luck!
