The iPhone Backup Extractor is a highly rated app that allows you to easily back up any of your Apple devices including your iPhone, iPad, iPad 2, iPod Touch, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 iTunes from your Windows or MAC OS X or Linux computer. It has a free version or two paid versions to choose from.

The free version of the iPhone Backup Extractor does everything except reset restrictions passwords, retrieve pre-iOS 5 PINs or reset in iOS 5+ backups. It is also not suggested for commercial use. The paid for versions will allow you to have the capabilities that aren’t available in the free version and they also each come with one year of free expert support and free upgrades as they are released.

The iPhone Backup Extractor app allows you to backup and extract all your most important information such as contacts, photos, videos, calendars, AppStore applications, SMS histories and other types of data that you are able to save to your iPhone or any other Apple device. How it works is it uses backups from your iOS iTunes backups for when you need to extract this information for uses such as to download in CSV format or to an excel spreadsheet.
