What’s the best way to sync and read PDFs on iOS?

To read PDFs us­ing the iBooks app, load them into the OS X ver­sion of iBooks and sync them us­ing iTunes. For more ephemeral use, there are many apps which will read PDFs loaded

via iCloud, in­clud­ing the of­fi­cial reader from Adobe, GoodReader and PDF Ex­pert. With iOS 9.3 and OS X 10.11.4, PDFs and ebooks can be synced to iBooks on all your de­vices via iCloud.

How can I back up my iPhone fully with­out iCloud?

The of­fi­cial al­ter­na­tive

is to con­nect your iPhone to a Mac or PC

over USB, then use iTunes’ backup fea­ture. Third-party tools, such

as Syn­cios, only work with cer­tain mod­els, and their back­ups may not

be as com­plete.
