Detailed Steps

As well as saving files from your iPhone, iPod and iPad to your local computer, you can use TouchCopy to save your files to your iCloud Drive. Saving to the iCloud Drive means all of these files will be accessible by your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac or PC, as long as the iCloud Drive App is active on each device.

TouchCopy enables you to save all file types from your iOS device to iCloud drive - your music, photos, messages, contacts, calendars, notes, call logs and Internet browsing history.

You can copy your files to iCloud in four simple steps:

  3. Download TouchCopy and install it on your computer.
