This April, Apple introduced some pretty rigid restrictions to iPhone apps with the release of iOS 8.3. This means that the little control iOS users had over apps installed on their very own devices continues to dwindle.
The limitations restrict access from your computer to app preferences and other content. Therefore, we had to disable a number of features in CopyTrans Apps for devices running iOS 8.3 or higher. If you updated to iOS 8.3 and use CopyTrans Apps, here’s what you can still do with the program and what you no longer can:
This feature is available in CopyTrans Apps for all iOS versions
Due to Apple limitations, this feature is disabled for devices running iOS 8.3 or higher
Backup and restore of iPhone apps
Clean up iPhone temporary files
You can however, still free up space on your iPhone without losing any data, by following the checklist from this dedicated tutorial in our blog: How to free up iPhone disk space.
CopyTrans Apps remains a practical utility for backing up and restoring iPhone apps including public app documents. Having said this, we can do little about going around Apple’s strict new limitations. CopyTrans Apps is a free beta program that we love and seek to improve.
