  1. Hey Suprabhat,

    iMyfone Umate is really a great software to clean unnecessary files from our iphone or ipad. It’s always good to free some space in iPhone or iPad devices so that we can storage more music, install more apps and save more pictures. Factory resets are simply not enough to remove our data but using a professional data destroyer such like that ensures that our information is safe regardless of whose hands into which it may fall.

    It really sounds effective to recovers a great deal of space on our iPhone, but also removes private data from our iPad and iPod touch with no possibility of its recovery. Eventually, thanks for sharing your experience with us.

    With best wishes,

  2. I was lead to believe that all you had to do is back up to the cloud and do a factory reset. Good to know. Especially, since I am planning to upgrade soon, and sell my old phone.

  3. An excellent post needed for all iPhone user, though I not an iPhone user will surely grab this knowledge for my future reference. Thanks for sharing this informative post, the steps was clear and the images you have updated was so precise to see it. An great article for iPhone user.

  4. I wonder what the real benefit is of this software versus the standard iCloud functionality? iCloud allows you to remotely wipe your iphone, so I would imagine that would do the trick just fine.

    It does seem like iMyFone is a bit more granular in its functionality, but I’m not sure I could justify using it just to gain a bit more control. My $.02.
