It’s well known that Apple’s operating system is strict and locked down. Because of this, it’s not flexible when it comes to moving your files from an iOS device to a Mac computer.
The developer Wondershare, has produced Dr.Fone Toolkit, a comprehensive package of utilities to enable you to manage, backup and recover files that you have stored on your iOS. The most significant utility in Dr.Fone is the data recovery function. You can use this app with a free trial before committing to a subscription. Other apps with similar features are PhoneRescue and Free Mac Android Data Recovery.
Does Dr.Fone work on Mac?
Yes, it does work on Mac. Download the app, follow the on-screen instructions and connect your iOS device to your Mac with the relevant cable.
Is Dr.Fone safe?
As long as you download it from a reputable source, preferably the official website, you won’t have any problems with PUPs (potentially unwanted programs).
In terms of usage, Dr.Fone appears to be highly efficient at recovering data from both iOS and Android devices.
How do I install Dr.Fone on Mac?
Once the download is finished, click on the file, and in the window that pops up, click ‘Agree’ to begin the installation. To finish the installation process, drag the Dr.Fone icon across to the Applications folder.
Move your chats
If you have an Android or iOS device and you want to move your chats from one platform to another, Dr.Fone Toolkit lets you do so. You can connect both to your Mac computer for an easy transfer without losing any data on your WhatsApp application.
Complete solution for data transfer
Dr.Fone Toolkit is one of our favourite utility apps. It’s a complete solution that bridges iOS and macOS devices, giving you the flexibility for managing your files. Given the relatively closed nature of Apple’s ecosystem, it’s good to know that you can back up and subsequently restore your data if you have a problem with your iPhone.
The toolkit isn’t the cheapest suite of applications, but in our opinion, it’s definitely worth buying because of its utility.
