What is an IMAZINGAPP file?
An IMAZINGAPP file is a backup file created by iMazing, an iPhone backup application. It contains user-specific data (e.g. settings and login information) backed up from an iPhone app. IMAZINGAPP files are named for the app from which they were created (e.g. an IMAZINGAPP file that contains a user's Spotify data is named Spotify.imazingapp).
iMazing is a Windows and Mac application that iPhone users can use to back up all or some of the data stored on their iPhones. If a user wants to back up only the data used by a specific iPhone app, they can open iMazing and select Manage Apps. The user then selects the app for which they want to back up their data, opens iMazing's drop-down menu, and selects Back Up App Data.
iMazing then saves the user's user-specific app data in an IMAZINGAPP file. IMAZINGAPP files contain only a user's app data; they do not contain a copy of the app from which they were created. iMazing can, however, use IMAZINGAPP file's to re-install associated apps, as a user restores the data their IMAZINGAPP file contains.
How to open an IMAZINGAPP file
You can open an IMAZINGAPP file in iMazing (Mac, Windows). To restore the data your IMAZINGAPP file contains:
- Open iMazing with your iPhone connected and select Manage Apps.
- Open the drop-down menu and select Restore App Data.
You can then drag-and-drop or browse to your IMAZINGAPP file to restore the data it contains. iMazing will re-install the associated app if needed.
