The AnyTrans iPhone manager app by iMobie helps users easily transfer, manage and back up content on their devices from one place. iMobie’s recent release of version 8, supported by iOS 13, cuts down on the hassle factor further by improving functionality in various ways and adding new features. If you wince at the thought of moving files to and from your iPhone using iTunes, you might find AnyTrans a user-friendly alternative.

AnyTrans 8 iPhone manager: New look, new speed

In Version 8, iMobie redesigned the AnyTrans user interface to be neater and more intuitive than it once was. Users can easily manage iPhone data, transfer content to a new phone, create backups and access utilities from a single interface. Even better, the speed of data loading and transfer is four times faster than in the previous version. That makes moving large or numerous files less of a headache.

Convenient, one-click data migration

When you’re moving files around, AnyTrans gives you plenty of flexibility. You can shift content between iPhones or from an Android phone to an iPhone. And you can transfer data to or from the cloud or a source such as Google Drive. Or you can quickly back up a device.

AnyTrans does all of this and, best of all, the features are just a click away — literally. You don’t need to manually download apps from your old phone one by one to your new iPhone 11. The app lets you move all data with one click. Apps retain their settings after the transfer, too. And when you’re done, you can help protect your privacy by erasing all content and settings on the old phone with just one click.

iPhone screen mirroring

AnyTrans’ new iPhone screen mirroring tool lets you put your iPhone screen on your computer screen. You can use it to play videos from your iPhone on a bigger screen, making for a richer experience. You also can record any part of the content for future use. That will help you get the most out of a class lecture, your boss’ latest riveting presentation or that cat video you can’t stop watching.

Popular features remain

While the latest version of AnyTrans brings a new look and new functionality, it continues to offer popular features from previous versions. Device Manager enables you to transfer data between a computer and an iPhone. Ringtone Maker helps you customize iPhone ringtones. Backup Manager allows you to back up data and manage all of your local backups. And speaking of backups, AnyTrans can back up more data types than iTunes — and offers encryption, to boot.

Price: Free, with premium upgrade available
