Do you noticed that every time you sync and backup your iPhone, iTunes actually creates a backup copy of "Update: This solution does not work for all iPhone users. Only those with Time Machine option enabled will get the backup copies." on your Mac? Under such situations, if you want to restore your iPhone to a backup you created 3 months ago, you can select the folder and open Time Machine. Navigate back 3 months and then click restore.
Time Machine is the built-in backup that works with your Mac, including system files, applications, accounts, preferences, email messages, music, photos, movies, and documents. It keeps hourly backups for the past 24 hours, daily backups for the past month, and weekly backups until your backup drive is full. (Quote from apple.com)
Now, follow below step-by-step guide to take just a few clicks to restore iPhone files from previous backup.
