Actions Panel in iMazing
The actions panel is where you'll launch most common operations. Some like Restore trigger a wizard, others have immediate effect. The list of available actions depends on whether your sidebar selection is a device or a backup.
When iMazing's window is at its minimum size, some of the action buttons will not be visible until you scroll down.
Wizards are easy to follow step-by-step assistants for the following operations:
- Backup a device
- Restore a backup to a device
- Transfer data from one device to another
- Manage apps on the device or in iMazing's Apps Library
💡Tip: At the end of each wizard, you will have the option to Close Window. Closing the window is perfectly safe: it will take you back to iMazing's main interface, and will not cancel your ongoing operation.
To view the status of ongoing and finished operations, open the Operations window.
