I’m very glad that Apple decided to backup iPhones at every sync since many times we might accidentally delete a lot of stuff. However, there are times where I just want to sync one or two applications or songs, and I have to wait 20-30 minutes for the backup step to complete.
Here’s a few methods to skip the backup process:
1. Press the ‘x’ next to the backup status screen (Easiest, not recommended)
2. Install BackOff from DigiDNA (Best Solution)
3. Update the configuration file to skip backups. (Most difficult, most risky, not recommended)
