3 Easy Hacks to Transfer Data From an iOS Device

3 Easy Hacks to Transfer Data From an iOS Device

Freeing up your device by transferring your files from iDevice to desktop allows a smooth process for any upgrade. This will be an important factor if you want to tap into the imminent iOS 10 release. Doing this reduces the risk of any data loss that you could experience when your files remain on your iDevice.

It has become a popular question for iOS owners to inquire how they could transfer their files from iDevice to desktop. Well in the past such actions could only be realized by people who could email themselves files across devices. However a lot of things have changed now.


It is important to know that there are tools that can help you transfer your files from an iOS device to computer. Such tools help you tap into the functionality of your device. Still, you have to know the process of accomplishing a transfer of your files from your iOS device to your computer.

1. Free your iDevice

There are a lot of tools for transferring and managing iPhone files. But it is important to find a tool that has a user-friendly interface and transfers your files at the highest possible speed in simple methods. You also have to consider how you can maximize your iPhone space, back up files, export videos of big size and flexibly manage iPhone music on PC. There are a lot of peculiar features among different PC suite software in the market. But you have to consider the versatility of the tool, the speed and ease of using such tools.


You have to also consider that importing videos from PC to iPhone in a traditional way (for example when you use iTunes) can be long and boring. Sometimes the transferred videos can be incompatible with your iPhone and the time you have used in importing such videos becomes in vain. You have to also consider seeking a tool that would help transfer your videos to iPhone or PC in minutes. It should be functional enough to convert any videos (MKV, FLV, AVI, 4K, HD, UHD) to IOS-friendly formats for later playback. Editing or performing other operations on iPhone, iPad, iPod shouldn’t be a complicated process.

2. Use the right tool to transfer your files

WinX MediaTrans, a versatile iPhone file transfer and manager can help you transfer music from iPhone to PC for enjoying anytime anywhere with only several clicks. With this iPhone manager, you can transfer music. Also, it exports iPhone music back to PC when you want to free up iPhone storage or update its music playlists. It has unmatchable loading and transferring speed so that backing up tens of high quality music takes only half a minute.


Unlike iTunes, it never erases the old data on your iPhone, so you don’t have to worry about that. If you think that managing music can be a pain with the restrictions of the limited size of iPhone screen and complex operations, WinX MediaTrans is one to choose when you consider the many tools out there. With it you can easily rename, delete iPhone music playlists, edit music information like artist, album, etc. and get an overview of the music quality, format and duration with the file structure of your phone showing in an organized way on Windows PC.

3. Turn Your iDevice as Free USB drive

If you are in urgent need of a USB to copy some important materials, this file transfer will set your iPhone, iPad or iPod at hand as a flash drive to store temporarily your Excel, Word, PDF or other files. So you don’t have to take a USB, which is so inconspicuous that people often left it somewhere, with you anytime anywhere.


Too many clicks bother sometimes, so if you want easier operations and less clicks, just drag and drop media to their destinations (sync or export) to finish the jobs neatly.
