    Just a friendly reminder that downgrading from 10.3 doesn't work like it use to because of the new file system. Option+Update won't allow you to downgrade and keep data intact. Make a copy of your 10.2.1 or older backup before updating!

    Happy Update Day!

    What's the best way to make a copy of a backup? Dragging that backup folder takes forever.

    You can just go into iTunes -> Preferences -> Devices -> Right click the backup and click archive. This will prevent it from being overwritten.
