DearMob iPhone Manager – TechNadu’s Review

Before we get started, you should know that we’ve tested the version 3.3 of DearMob iPhone Manager on a Windows PC. There’s no need to list our PC’s specs, as you don’t need a powerful computer to run this application – even dated hardware should do the job just fine.

Platform Compatibility

DearMob iPhone Manager - Main UI View

You can run this application on Windows PCs and Apple’s Macs, and you’ll get the same experience across both of those platforms. Our Score: 10/10.

DearMob iPhone Manager comes as a standalone application for Windows and MacOS. However, please note that we’re talking about two separate versions. This means that when you buy a license, you need to buy one for Windows or MacOS – which means that licenses are not interchangeable. Still, we also need to note that both of these versions bring close to identical experience, and there are no limitations to any particular version.

Also, finding the official requirements has proven to be a tough task. However, it’s safe to say that you have a computer bought in the last 10 years or so, you can run this iPhone Manager without any problems. After all, this is not a demanding application, so even entry-level computer shouldn’t have a hard time running it.

Installation Process

When you open this iPhone Manager for the first time, you’ll see a very familiar-looking interface. What you’ll see is a series of icons, resembling those that you see on iOS.

In comparison to iTunes, this application syncs your data equally fast. On top of that, we didn’t encounter a single bug. Our Score: 10/10.

There are numerous factors that impact the speed of DearMob iPhone Manager. For example, how many photos you want to sync, or if you have numerous 4K videos that you also want to convert. So, if you have a top-tier iPhone model and want to convert high-resolution videos, be prepared to wait for quite some time for the process to end. However, this is something you can expect from any application that is similar to this one.

In general, it could be said that the iPhone Manager is doing its job well. It’s fast and reliable. There aren't any annoyances when connecting iOS devices (which often happens with other applications) and we didn’t encounter any bugs. Therefore, we give it the highest rating.

Customer Support

DearMob iPhone Manager - Support Center

Even though there’s plenty of support documentation, it’s not always easy to find help. Therefore, we consider this to be a mixed bag. Our Score: 8.5/10.

In case you have additional questions or some doubts about this software, you can turn to the official support center. You might be confused a bit since ‘5K Player’ is often mentioned, which is another product by the company behind this iPhone Manager. A nice way to get started is by reading a comprehensive guide that you can find both for Windows and MacOS.

There are also ways to contact the company by email. However, the company’s About Us page is quite generic and doesn’t show an address or telephone number. Still, this isn’t something to be worried about since there are money-back guarantees and you can do the same via your PayPal account.

Pricing

DearMob iPhone Manager isn’t the most affordable option out there. However, it holds a lot of value which makes it a worthwhile purchase. Our Score: 9/10.
