How to Backup and Restore App Data on iPhone and iPad without iTunes

Due to iOS system security settings, currently, if you want to backup app data or game saves on your iOS devices, like an iPhone, iPad or an iPod Touch, you can only use iTunes or iCloud drive. However, since iCloud offers only limited available space for free while app data are literally big, which in turn leads to the slow speed of uploading app data to iCloud, so backup app data with iCloud is not that user friendly. Compared with iCloud, iTunes can be worse to backup app data, since it only backs up app data, it backs up everything, so if you want to restore the data to your device, all of your current data will be overwritten. So only if you want to restore everything including app data to your iPhone/iPad, otherwise I bet you don't want to using iTunes. So except iTunes and iCloud, is there any better method to backup your app data or game saves on iOS devices? Of course, this tutorial is here to help you, please read on this article to make the difference.
