    so im currently using my pc and my MBP.

    on my pc there is software that I can use that allows me to view my iPhone back file, amend app files etc.

    Is there anything similar for macs?

    I use it for making copies of files that I have edited on my phone/ipad. I could pull the files directly from the App folder instead of either emailing them to myself etc then backing them up.

    whilst I can still do this on my PC, it would be more convenient if I could do it on my MBP :)

    Check and see if iMazing will let you do that. There's a 30% discount if you use the link from the Mac Geek Gab podcast here. This isn't a referral link, I don't get anything for it - I just know about it from listening to the podcast.

    I did buy it myself using that link and I found it useful getting a copy of the wallpaper image file out of the backup. It also does incremental backups of my iOS devices automatically and keeps the last months worth.
