Why do you need an iPhone to PC transfer software?

Are you looking for a solution to the age-old problem of transferring files from iPhone to computer? Why iPhone users would need an iPhone manager software when iTunes software is already there?

iTunes is certainly one of the most amazing and must have applications for iPhone, iPad and iPod users. But there are some limitations with iTunes, it only allows one-way synchronization from the Computer to the iPhone.

For example, if the music library on your PC is empty and you sync your iPhone using iTunes, it will erase all your existing music tracks from your phone. It is nearly impossible to transfer music, videos, contacts and other data back onto your hard drive simply by using iTunes software alone.

Of course, there are plenty of other reasons to transfer iPhone to PC. For example, what would you do if you just formatted your hard drive and all your data is on your iPhone, or you want to get a song from mate's iPhone to your PC?

Therefore, in those circumstances, a third-party transfer tool is very necessary.

Note: You can also transfer data from iPhone to your computer manually by copying and pasting. But when there is a large amount of data you need to transfer from iPhone, this method will take a lot of time and effort. If you want to download your iCloud photos, follow this guide to get photos back from iCloud.
