You can backup iPhone using libimobiledevice. By the time I replied here, it supports up to iOS 7.

Please check this post for a tutorial. Actually, the methods introduced can be used on Linux systems with the libimobiledevice installed.

Backup iPhone:

idevicebackup2 backup ~/iPhoneBackups/

Unpack the backup files:

idevicebackup2 unback ~/iPhoneBackups/
