10 Best Computer to iPhone Data Transfer Software for Free

A third-party iPhone USB transfer software feels better than official iTunes software. Importing and exporting data separately is a much better experience than sync all at once. iTunes is the only official software that use to manage an iOS device or for data transfer from the computer. I found some third-party software that lets you manage your iOS device and transfer data between your computer and device. In iTunes, you need to first add multimedia files and then sync to your iPhone. It feels a little tougher than copying directly from your computer. But with the help of below listed tools you can add files directly on your iPhone or iOS device like Music, Videos, Images, Apps, and more. Not just a data transfer, even these software will give you more control over your iPhone or iOS  device like iPhone Ringtone/Video/Music converter, Backup & Restore, Export and Import Apps, Edit data, and more.

You can also export some useful apps from your iPhone to computer (.IPA format) and install those apps offline to another iPhone device without using the iTunes store. Below listed software works well on all iOS devices, including iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Don’t forget to read the instructions from the publisher’s website.
