Your Ultimate iPhone Manager

Let’s admit it, working around the iPhone is more difficult than with Android devices. While you can mount your Android phones on almost any type of operating system, the same cannot be said for iOS devices. Not anymore, though. With iExplorer, you can now access, view, and even transfer files and everything else from your iPhone, iPod, or iTunes to any Mac or PC. This utility software is the ultimate iPhone manager you are looking for.

Transfer Music, Texts, and Files Intelligently

iExplorer aims to improve the way you browse and manage the contents of your iOS device. It does so by establishing an easier-to-work-with connection between your device and your computer. It lets you easily and intelligently transfer your music, texts, and other files to your computer and even iTunes accounts. If you think you are having way too many songs saved on your iPhone, you can use the app to transfer them to your computer or even iTunes. Using the app, you can search for a particular music file and then copy it to iTunes for just a touch of a button. You can also use the app’s drag-and-drop mechanic, if you want. Do you want to transfer more than just a few tracks? You can create a playlist and use the app’s Auto Transfer feature to copy all your songs at once.

Of course, aside from music, iExplorer also lets you save a copy of your message history to your computer or Mac. Using the app, you can view, export, and archive your message history from iMessage, SMS, and other messaging applications. The app even works with images and other attachments. With this, you can go back to your previous conversation a lot easier. 

Furthermore, iExplorer allows you to export your call history and listen to your voicemail messages on your computer. You can even export them and save them to a folder in your Mac or PC. Aside from messaging and call history, you can also export your address book contacts, calendar events, reminders, notes, and more. 

Mount Your Phone Anytime

iExplorer lets you transfer your files to your computer or iTunes, but the app’s capabilities do not end there. Also, it comes with a disk mounting feature which allows you to use your iPhone, iPod, or iPad like a USB flash drive. Much like most Android phones, with the help of iExplorer, you can view your iPhone’s photos directly in Finder or Windows Explorer. You don’t have to transfer them. You simply need to open the iExplorer app and plug in your iPhone to your computer. You’ll see the Device Overview screen where you can navigate to the Media Library. From the right-click drop-down option, you only need to choose the Mount as Disk to view your files. Users must note that your PC must have iTunes installed in it for you to use iExplorer’s mounting function. Once your device is mounted, you can then easily access your files and folders—even without jailbreaking. 

Manage Every Little Thing on Your iPhone

iExplorer is a complete tool for backing up your iOS device to your computer. With this neat little software, you can manage everything on your iPhone, iPod, and iPad. It is efficient and intuitive when taking on tasks, regardless of their nature. You just might have a problem with the insistent ad inserts and the occasional crashing that the app is known to do. But all in all, it is a useful companion for iOS device owners.

This program is Windows 11 compatible.

    Unfortunately it doesn't work with Windows operating on VM Fusion. Windows recognises the iPhone but the iPhone does not get recognised by iexplorer. More
