“I bought a red iPhone 7 when it released, now there are many WeChat messages on it, i want to extract them to my Mac for backup. Anyone can teach me how to extract WeChat messages from red iPhone 7 to Mac?”
Many people are Apple fan, and they may have iPhone, iPad and Mac, and use WeChat on all those device. Then WeChat data as well as other iOS data will be scattered, and we may want to backup them on our Mac, in case we lost some of them. So in this article, we’ll teach you how to extract WeChat messages from red iPhone 7 to Mac firstly.
Extract WeChat Messages with iTunes
Unlike iCloud, iTunes backup files are stored on our PC directly, so we can check iTunes backup files from related folder on PC directly. On the other hand, it means we can extract our WeChat messages to Mac with iTunes also.
Launching your iTunes, connect your red iPhone 7 with Mac. When it’s recognized, go to Device--Summary. Then tap on “Backup Now” on the right page, and confirm with “Backup”.
When finish backup, you can go to below folder address to check them:
For Windows: C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup
For Mac ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/
Or you can also restore iTunes backup files to your Mac.
Remark: it doesn’t support us to backup or restore iPhone data selectively, so we’ll have to backup and restore the whole folder.
