1. Launch iMazing on your computer
Once you have downloaded and installed iMazing, launch it. Then, click the small gear in the dashboard to access options
You'll only need to do this if you haven't configured automatic backups yet. Once you have, iMazing Mini will launch automatically when you start your computer and will be available alongside other menu bar apps.
2. Connect your device
To use iMazing Mini, you'll need to connect your device to your computer with a USB cable. You'll only need to do this once, if you choose to use iMazing Mini's Wi-Fi backup feature.
When you connect your iPhone or iPad, a wizard will guide you through the connection process. Once paired with your computer, your device will automatically connect via Wi-Fi.
3. Verify your Backup Settings
The first time you connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer, you will be prompted to set up your backup options. If you have multiple devices, each device has its own backup options.
Note: Make sure that Backup Encryption is DISABLED. Enabling this feature will cause data to not be uploaded.
By default, iMazing Mini backs up your devices daily via Wi-Fi, and keeps one month of backups. There are other settings you should look at on the Options screen:
- Backup Location lets you choose an external or network hard drive to store your backups.
- Backup Archiving lets you choose how long iMazing Mini stores backups.
Check all the available options to see how you can customize your own backups.
