iTunes and iCloud are common two ways Apple provided to help iPhone users backup iPhone data. However, both of the two methods have their inconveniences. For macOS Catalina users, iTunes is no longer an option to backup data. They will need to use Finder to backup iPhone.

- First, what iTunes and iCloud do is to backup all iPhone content and do not allow you to select specific iPhone files to backup, and they both cannot allow you to easily access the backup iPhone files.
- Second, any music, videos or other media that are not purchased from iTunes, iBooks will not be backed up by iTunes, and may be easily erased from iPhone when using iTunes sync.
- Third, iTunes is very complicated and troublesome. It only allows you to sync your iPhone with only one iTunes library. If your computer is broken or lost, you normally need to start iTunes again, which means iTunes possibly erases your entire iPhone data. Horrible!
