Backup WeChat Data with iTunes

Also we can use iTunes to backup our WeChat data, but it doesn’t support us to backup them selectively, so we will need also backup other iPhone data.

Launching your iTunes, connect your iPhone with PC. When your iPhone is recognized by PC, go to Files--Summary, tap on “Backup Now” on the right page, and confirm with “Backup”.

Backup WeChat Data with iCloud

When the storage of your iCloud is enough, you can also use iCloud to backup your WeChat data.

Connect your iPhone with Wifi, go to Setting--iCloud, log in it with your Apple ID and password.

When log in, turn on your iCloud driver, and tap on “Backup” at the bottom, then confirm with “Backup Now”.
