Setting up Qubii is easy! Just follow the few steps below:
Set up Qubii Device
1. Insert microSD card into Qubii’s microSD card slot.
We recommend a microSD card with a capacity that is greater than that of your smartphone or device. If the microSD card's capacity is lower than your smartphone, it's also ok! Qubii can still perform backups for your data When the card reaches maximum capacity, Qubii will display a pop-up message telling you to switch the microSD card. Once switched, the backup will start from where it left off.
*Please Note: Before first use, Qubii will format your microSD card from FAT32 to exFAT automatically if your microSD card is 32GB or 64GB. This is because the FAT32 format is unable to carry files over 4GB, which may limit backups for certain files. The exFAT file system was released by Microsoft to address FAT32's inability to carry files over 4GB.
2. Connect Qubii’s USB port to your USB power adaptor.
Please pay attention the type of the charger you have. Qubii, Qubii Pro and Qubii Duo USB-A all have USB-A ports which only support USB-A chargers (standard chargers). Only the Qubii Duo USB-C can support USB-C chargers.
3. Connect your charging cable to both your Qubii and smartphone.
*Please note: Qubii only works when it is connected to a power outlet. To ensure compatibility and for the best experience, it is always best to work with Apple MFi-certified cables.
4. Download the App to your smartphone.
There are two Apps in the App store; " Qubii " and "Qubii Pro".
- If you are using Qubii, please download "Qubii " app from App Store.
- If you are using Qubii Pro or Qubii Duo, please download "Qubii Pro" app from the App Store. Although the Qubii Pro and Qubii Duo both utilize the "Qubii Pro" app. the function is slightly different. Because of this, the app will detect which device you have and enable compatible functions.
5. Connect your power adaptor and Qubii to a power outlet.
6. Follow instructions in the app to finish setup.
If you need to unplug the cable while Qubii is actively backing up, please tap the "CANCEL" button first before you unplug it.
Qubii will back up automatically every time you charge your phone. Please tap "Allow Access to All Photos" to allow Qubii to backup all the photos from your iPhone & iPad's camera roll, otherwise Qubii will not be able to back up automatically.
This allows Qubii to back up your contacts from your iPhone.
Qubii will not back up your contacts without your permission. Don't worry, all of your content will back up only to your microSD card. Maktar prioritizes your privacy and does not upload any of your data to the cloud. You can test this by turning off your internet to back up.
Since your the app runs in the background, feel free to use your phone while Qubii backs up your data! If you want to know the status of your current backup, please tap "allow" to turn on the notification.
Qubii also allows you to back up photos from Instagram or Facebook. You can choose to set up this function now or later on by going to the Qubii app settings.
