I love my iPhone, but iTunes, the default media player computer program that handles the library of data, music, contacts and such is not user-friendly.
I find it so cumbersome to use. Yes iTunes has excellent features, but most of it is unknown at the behest of an average joe.
So when I tried to use the iTunes on my laptop, which is on another computer, other than my usual desktop, well I was afraid I might just lose all my shite in my iPhone if I try to sync it.
Not to fret, here’s how I did it simply:
- Backup your iPhone first. You could use iCloud, but I prefer to save it locally in the computer.
- Next go to ‘File’
- Choose ‘Transfer Purchases from YourIphoneName Purchases’.
- Once transferred, you can start using the iTunes normally.
- The above helps to transfer the apps in your iPhone to the new computer locally.
- So when you sync, you won’t surprisingly and horrifyingly find all your apps gone.
- Also be wary of what your ‘Tick’ in the Sync box, as you only transferred the apps to another computer, and not the photos, contacts, music, or movies.
