Eas­ily ac­cess an iOS de­vice

Backup, trans­fer and delete iPad, iPhone or iPod touch files from your Mac

Mac Format - - IMPROVE | MAC APPS -

While you can get some ac­cess to the files stored on your iPad or iPhone through iTunes, this is fairly limited. The good news is there are apps avail­able that give you ac­cess all files and fold­ers on your iOS de­vice with­out jail­break­ing it. This gives you com­plete con­trol over what goes on (and comes off ) your mo­bile – we’re go­ing to look at one of them here: iFunBox, which is free from i-funbox.com/ifun­box­mac.

iFunBox lets you browse your iPad, iPhone or iPod stor­age through a Finder-like in­ter­face

Once in­stalled, iFunBox lets you browse your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch stor­age through a Finder-like in­ter­face. By plac­ing your apps, me­dia and other files at your fin­ger­tips, you can clear much­needed space with­out unin­stalling apps, as well as back-up or trans­fer doc­u­ments, files and apps from one iOS de­vice to another via your Mac with­out a Wi-Fi con­nec­tion. You can even turn part of your de­vice’s un­used ca­pac­ity into spare stor­age, just like a flash drive.

If you plan to use iFunBox to clear space, it warns you to be care­ful with the data you de­cide to delete – there’s no go­ing back un­less you’ve backed it up to your Mac first. Don’t worry, though, as we’ll go through what you need to do in the step-by-step walk­through be­low. Nick Peers
