iOS to PC Transfer：Move iPhone Data to Computer/Mac
Is there any effective way to transfer data from an iPhone to a Win or Mac computer? The official answer is using iTunes. However, as is known to all, iTunes can only move those purchased from iPhone to Win/Mac, let alone those non-purchased. Also, most supported data are unable to be viewed directly.
Due to the limitations of iTunes, here goes iPhone Transfer, a brilliant transfer software, which enjoys popularity in USA. This program supports up-to-14 types of data, including Photos, Videos, Contacts, Messages, Songs, Movies and so on. As compared to iTunes, it allows you to preview data before the transfer, view the content after the transfer and freely select desired files to transfer between different devices.
