“Is it possible to save multiple iTunes backup for one iPhone? I have an iPhone 5S,every time I synced it to iTunes, the old backup will be overwritten and only keep one backup file. some ios data in old backup were deleted, I am wondering can iTunes create more than one backup for my iPhone 5S?
Actually, iTunes only keeps one normal backup per iOS device. So it only saved the most recent backup everytime you sync your iPhone 5S. It’s an incremental backup in that only data that has changed is actually backed up. When you upgrade your iPhone to a version that is not compatible with the previous backup it will start a new backup, and the old one will still be listed, but this is the only time more than one backup will be saved in iTunes for the same iPhone. If you want to keep multiple backups in iTunes you will have to use a backup program on your computer.
