If your device is running iOS 8 and earlier, CopyTrans Shelbee will back up and restore all the iPhone apps with app documents and preferences.
*With iOS 9 and 10, Apple scrapped the functionality to back up apps. Now if you wish to restore your documents backed up with CopyTrans Shelbee, download the respective applications from the App Store. As soon as the apps are installed, all your documents will be restored automatically.
CopyTrans Shelbee validates the backup integrity after the backup completes.
You can change the default backup directory set by iTunes and find all your backups easily in the folder of your choice.
