It will help you to transfer contacts, photos, music, videos and any other data you can imagine of from PC to iPhone and vice versa.
Why is Data Transfer Important?
Let us start by knowing the importance and benefits of transferring iPhone data to PC or Mac.
1. New iPhone Released every Year
Apple releases their new baby every fall. iOS fans like you and me are tempted to get to the latest device to enjoy all the updated features. Well, who can stop us? Eventually, we get our hands on the latest iPhone.
But what about the valuable data in your previous iPhone? This is where you will need to transfer all the data from your old iPhone to PC so that you can restore it to your new iOS device.
2. Switching From Android to iOS
If you happen to a part of the large ratio of users who have switched from Android to iOS in the past year then data transfer from Android to iPhone is imperative for you.
3. Issues with iPhone
Many times you will face issues like iPhone stuck at Apple logo. To resolve it, you will have to reset your device. But it will be so naive of you if you reset it without transferring/backing up data to your PC.
The backup will help you to restore all the data on your iPhone after formatting it.
Now, when you are aware of the significance of data transfer and backup of iPhone data, it is time to get to the know how to transfer data from PC to iPhone.
How to Transfer Contacts/Pictures/Music/Video From PC to iPhone Without iTunes
iTunes is the first choice to transfer files from iOS device to PC. But it is not easy to use iTunes for the users that are not tech-savvy or are switching from Android.
Apart from that iTunes is low on features as well. It transfers data as a backup file and you cannot open the actual files on PC. Also, what if you want to use that backup to restore an Android device. The backup will be useless in that case.
As a matter of fact, iTunes lacks features like exporting files like Music, Photos from iPhone. But an ultimate alternative to iTunes, TunesGo from Wondershare is packed with such features.
Here is how it works.
1. Download TunesGo from the Wondershare’s official website.
It has a free trial version with limited data transfer ability. After which you can always go for the premium version which is reasonably priced.

6. To transfer music from your PC to iPhone Click on Add at the top left corner and select File. You may even select Folder if you have all the music files in a folder.
7. Select the music file/folder and click Open.
Now, wait for the tool to add the song. The time taken will depend on the number of songs you are transferring. For me, 355 songs took some 3 minutes.
Similarly, you can use other tabs to transfer contacts, videos and Photos from PC to iPhone.
