So a few days ago, I was trying to update my iPhone’s music library with my latest favorite songs and I ended up losing some of my important data from the phone! I was confused as to how that happened because apparently iTunes is supposed to be the ‘best’ transfer tool for iOS devices, right? Wrong!
Yup, that’s what I thought too. But I found out that as you “Sync” your device with iTunes, you end up losing the music, eBooks or similar data on your iPhone that does not coexist on your iTunes app. Because iTunes “syncs” data on both of your devices, matching the content on your iTunes with the one on your iDevice and deleting the rest. Well my bad! I didn’t understand the whole concept of “syncing” before doing it.
So I started looking for other ways to transfer music from PC to iPhone without iTunes. And I came across an iTunes alternative that does the job way easily and simply.
