I have a Windows PC running Win10 & an iPhone 7. Phone became corrupted a few months ago when I upgraded to iOS 11 Since then, my iPhone no longer does a backup. It does sync and I am able to download new Apps, updates etc. I would ideally like to just upgrade my iPhone with the new iOS 11 but am reluctant to do so without first saving off my text messages and SMS photos to computer. Everything else on my phone is backed up either via sync or other methods. Texts are my issue. I am trying to determine if any product can help my problem.
