It is delighted to gain a new computer but it also leads to some problems of managing your computer data. For example, that is a big headache to switch iTunes music from the old to the new so as to keep the purchased songs from iTunes. There are two ways offered for this matter: re-download music with iTunes on new PC; hire an intermediary to transfer playlists and music. The latter is apparently practical since it can copy the whole playlist and music library from the old one, while iTunes may make the created playlist fade away on the new one.

iOS Transfer could play its vital role in this way. As a smart intermediary, it directs iPhone users to manage their music freely. Thus, music videos, songs, ringtones and other related files can be copied for standby, imported to iPhone, exported to PC/Mac.

Notes: You are allowed to select "Export to iTunes Library" so those music will be kept on iTunes. Remarkably, once you launch iOS Transfer on PC, iTunes must be installed simultaneously. Otherwise, you cannot execute the processes above.

Just with several clicks, the music in iTunes playlist and music library on the old computer has migrated to the new one. Such powerful function of iOS Transfer brings freedom for iOS users to transfer their iPhone data anywhere. Only with iOS 6 or later on your iPhone/iPad/iPod, can iOS Transfer act as a wise data-migrating manager.
