Smartphones are getting smarter and more powerful by the day, but it can often be a bit of a struggle if you’re moving to a new device or if you’re looking for a one-stop solution for managing your device. While there might be solutions out on the internet, it might take a while before you find something that works, which is why if you’re looking for the complete toolkit that will solve most of your problems with your iOS or Android device, then Wondershare Dr.Fone could be it.
Why you should use Wondershare Dr.Fone
Dr.Fone has been designed and developed by Wondershare as the ultimate all-in-one solution to fix a number of common phone problems. For example, if you need to access your phone even though its screen has been locked, or maybe if you need to perform a system repair to get it running properly again, or if you need to perform a deep wipe of your phone’s data before selling or passing it off to someone else.
One of the benefits of Wondershare Dr.Fone is that the software has been designed to be simple to use. It features a very easy-to-understand UI that pretty much anyone can use regardless of how well-versed in tech they are, making it one of its more appealing qualities compared to other software out there.
If Wondershare Dr.Fone sounds like an interesting proposition, then here are some of the app’s features and capabilities.
One of the main features of Wondershare Dr.Fone is its Phone Manager. This basically allows users to transfer files and data from their iPhones or Android phones quickly and easily either to another device or directly to their computer.
For example, Apple’s iPhone has great and easy-to-use software, but iTunes is kind of a nightmare and feels clunky compared to iOS, making it a pain if you need to move files around. Using the Phone Manager tool, users can drag and drop files to target apps, sync songs, transfer iCloud data to another iOS device or to their PC, and more.
While Android users have it easier, the Phone Manager tool can also be beneficial for other things, like if you’re coming from an iPhone you can transfer iCloud Device backups to your Android phone, manage your chat history on apps like WhatsApp, LINE, and so on, transfer contacts and call history, and more, all from the convenience of a single app.
Another great feature of Dr.Fone is how it handles WhatsApp chat history. Since WhatsApp backs up your chat history to iCloud if you’re an iOS user, and Google Drive for Android users, moving chat history across platforms can be complicated.
The WhatsApp Transfer feature of Dr.Fone makes it a breeze and lets you complete the transfer of WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business chats between devices. It also works not just with chats, but also media files like photos, videos, audio, and so on. It isn’t limited to just WhatsApp though, and will also work with other messenger apps such as LINE, Viber, Kik, and WeChat.
If you don’t trust the cloud and prefer keeping your chat history offline on your own PC or an external drive, this feature of Dr.Fone will let you do just that.
Users of one platform tend to stick to that platform, but we know that sometimes iOS users jump ship to Android and vice versa. Apple and Google already have tools to help you make the transfer, but Wondershare Dr.Fone makes the process seamless while also supporting additional data transfers.
Users moving from iOS to Android will be able to transfer things like photos, videos, contacts, contact blacklists, messages, bookmarks, calendars, voice memos, music, alarm records, voicemail, and ringtones, while Android to iOS transfers support photos, videos, contacts, messages, bookmarks, calendars, voice memos, and music.
The tool also helps you migrate from one iOS device to another, and one Android device to another, making it perfect if you’re someone that doesn’t rely on the cloud for backup.
Like we mentioned before, sometimes things can just happen to your phone seemingly out of the blue, and sometimes these errors could result in things like data loss. If that happens, you might panic because all your important files and data are on your phone and you haven’t backed it up yet.
This is where the Dr.Fone Data Recovery tool comes in handy. According to Wondershare, it offers some of the highest success rates when it comes to data recovery for both iOS and Android devices, with support for more than 6,000 Android devices. You will be able to retrieve data such as photos, videos, contacts, SMS, WhatsApp messages, and more.
The Data Recovery tool also lets users preview the files they are about to recover so that they can choose which ones they want to restore. This is useful because sometimes you might only need to recover a few photos or videos and not everything else. Users will also have the option of either restoring that data directly to their devices or onto their PCs.
Another incredibly useful feature of Wondershare Dr.Fone is its screen unlock feature. This is useful if you are accessing an older device whose passcode you might have forgotten, or you might have gotten locked out of your current device.
With the Screen Unlock tool, users will be able to remove the lock on iOS devices as well as Android devices in as quickly as 5 minutes. For iPhone users, the Screen Unlock tool claims to be able to bypass iCloud Activation Lock and can also bypass MDM restrictions without losing any data and without the need to jailbreak your iPhone.
It also works equally well on Android where it claims to be able to bypass Google FRP as well as unlock Samsung and LG phones, with support for 15 brands and over 2,000 models that are supported as well.
During the course of our phone usage, some of us might be unlucky enough to encounter issues that can hamper our ability to use our phones the way we want. Wondershare Dr.Fone comes with a System Repair tool that can diagnose and fix common issues.
For example, it can fix iPhone problems like your iPhone being stuck in Recovery Mode, or when you see the White/Black screen of death, a frozen iPhone, or when the iPhone keeps restarting itself. The best part is that it can fix these issues, and in most cases (not all), without the loss of data, while also giving users the option of upgrading and downgrading to newer/older versions of iOS that might be less buggy.
The System Repair tool also works on Android phones, fixing common Android issues like the Play Store not working, apps that keep crashing, phone being stuck on a boot loop, or if your device has been bricked. The repair process is incredibly simple and all users need to do is follow the instructions on the screen and they’ll be good to go in no time.
When selling or giving away your old phone, it’s always a good idea to perform a factory reset. A factory reset essentially erases all your data so that when the other person receives it, it will be like a brand new phone.
But if you’re not sure that the factory reset has completely wiped your data, Dr.Fone’s Data Eraser feature can come in handy. It erases data and ensures that no one can retrieve it. It also wipes data from your messenger apps to help protect your privacy, and it will also allow users to preview the data before erasing, just in case.
The Data Eraser also gives users a data erasure and diagnosis report that if you want, you can share with the person you’re selling your phone to to give them the peace of mind that the phone’s software is basically brand new.
If you’re an iOS user, you might actually be pleased to learn that Dr.Fone has a feature exclusive to iOS devices in the form of a Password Manager. This tool allows you to recover passwords that you might have forgotten, whether it be for your Apple ID login, apps, or websites.
It can even help you find WiFi passwords that your phone or tablet had previously connected to so you can connect to those networks again. You can also take those passwords that you recovered and export them to third-party password managers like 1Password, Lastpass, and so on.
Last but not least, Wondershare Dr.Fone comes with a phone backup tool. We know that Apple and Google already offer ways for users to backup their phones, but if you don’t trust these big tech companies with your data and prefer a different way of backing up, like to your PC or an external drive, this feature will come in handy.
In just a few steps, users can quickly and easily backup their iOS or Android phone data to their PC. The best part is the preview feature, where users can actually preview the backed-up content of their devices so they can be more selective in what they want to restore. So instead of wasting hard drive space by restoring everything, Wondershare Dr.Fone gives you more flexibility and customization. Furthermore, future backups will be incremental meaning that it only backs up files that have been changed, which makes the entire process a lot faster and saves disk space at the same time.
Now, some of you might be wondering how much will all this cost you? The good news is that Wondershare is actually offering various pricing plans for users depending on their needs. These plans allow users to either buy the entire toolkit, or they can pick and choose certain features that they feel are more important to them.
For example, you could choose only the Dr.Fone Data Eraser feature which is priced at $14.95 a year. You could then mix and match it with another feature like the Dr.Fone System Repair which is priced at $19.95 a year.
Alternatively, you could get the Dr.Fone Basic plan which is priced at $39.95 a year. This will give you access to features like Phone Manager, Phone Backup, and Screen Mirror.
Last but not least if you just want to get all the features, there is the Dr.Fone Full Toolkit plan priced at $99.95 a year that pretty much unlocks all the features we mentioned above. If you’d like to purchase a plan or customize one based on your needs, head on over to Wondershare’s website for the details.
In conclusion, Wondershare Dr.Fone has pretty much everything you might need in terms of a phone toolkit. Whether you’re looking to fix an existing problem, like apps constantly crashing or your phone being stuck in boot loop, or restoring data you might have accidentally deleted, or needing to bypass your lock screen because you forgot your password, Dr.Fone could be the be-all-end-all of phone toolkit software.
