A backup is a snapshot of the current state of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. When you back up your device, your data is safe.
With a backup, you can:
iTunes only keeps one current backup per device. Every time you back up your device, your last backup is overwritten, potentially resulting in data loss.
iMazing 2 archives your backups automatically, a unique solution that is comparable to a Time Machine for your device. Disk usage is optimised so that you can easily keep dozens of backups.

If you enable backup encryption, all further backups, whether they are made with iTunes or iMazing, will be encrypted. Forgetting your encryption password will cause major hassles. Be cautious when activating encryption!
Backups do not include your iTunes Media Library (iTunes U, Podcasts, Ringtones, Videos, iBooks and Music).
