  • Hoard messages from my phone
    I would use iMazing [Imazing home] but TBH how much this stands up under law is questionable. I was taught (U.K. In house training) that 'rule of last' [LawTeacher site] applies - all text messages are either followed up by a written contract (best) or email as 'phones can be spoofed / 'borrowed' easier than contracts.

  • How to check your iphone battery condition after renewing the battery
    With an unofficial battery you would need to use iMazing, which is available for Windows as well as macOS, or coconutBattery which is Mac only. Source: about 1 year ago

    You could use something like iMazing to back up your iPhone locally to your computer. You can choose what all gets backed up. You can have it extract the text messages themselves as well as any media. I have used it to save all photos that were sent to me via SMS from specific people to ensure that I didn't lose them.
