Note to that it isn’t possible to restore AC individually. The restore procedure restore all your app settings/data from your latest backup. It’s quite a long process as your iPad is wiped clean and IOS is reinstalled then you’re asked if you want to restore your backup data from a backup.

When your iPad is backed-up the AC back-up consists of:

The AC database: AstroConnexionsUser.sqlite3 – a SQLite database. Shown below in DB Browser for SQLite (for Mac)

Some tables are:

  • UserPreferences, eg Type of Solar Arc, long or RA
  • UserPreferences2, eg Reports preferences, snapshot preferences, etc
  • AspectHits – aspect hit data
  • AstroChartsList –  a list of your charts and associated data
  • CryptoInfo – Crypto Notes and Chart Notes
  • Snapshots
