To back up your iPhone without using iCloud, you can employ two primary methods: using iTunes on a computer or utilizing third-party backup tools. Here's a concise guide on each approach:

Using iTunes on a Computer

  1. Connect your iPhone to a computer with iTunes installed.
  2. Open iTunes and ensure your iPhone is recognized.
  3. Click the "Device" icon near the top left corner of the iTunes window.
  4. Choose "Summary" from the sidebar.
  5. Click "Back Up Now" below the "Manually Back Up and Restore" section to initiate the backup process.

Please note that you must have sufficient disk space on your computer to accommodate the backup size. Also, remember that you cannot browse or modify the contents of the backup file created through iTunes.

Using Third-Party Backup Tools

Various third-party applications exist that enable direct backups of your iPhone without iCloud. Some examples include EaseUS MobiMover, which allows you to back up various types of data from your iPhone to a computer. Search the App Store on your iPhone for similar options, keeping in mind that these tools might require a purchase or a subscription fee depending on the specific application.

Remember that these methods provide local backups rather than cloud-based ones, meaning you'd need physical access to the computer where the backup resides to retrieve the data.
