So you have got your iPad Air 2 and tons of files (phone numbers of family and friends, SMS from loved ones, photos captured by mobile camera, music and videos purchased, and so on). Surely, it is convenient to carry an iPad anywhere for work and for entertainment. And iPad is cool. But it is not safe to store all the contents there because it might be stolen one day on a crowded bus or subway. What you can do to prevent your precious contents from permanent loss is to copy all data to your computer. In the below section, I will show how to sync iPad content to Mac with iOS Transfer.

iOS Transfer offers a well-organized interface for managing and syncing data from iOS to Mac. Your media files, books, contents, and text messages can be synced to a Mac folder with one click. The program supports previewing files before transferring. And the Mac version occupies little storage of your hard disk of Mac which will not slow down your computer. Just download it from the Download button and enjoy great features of it.
