AnsweredCan Apple Transfer Data Without iCloud? [All Devices]

Best Answered by May    September 26, 2023

iCloud is the official way to transfer data on iOS devices, but it only offer 5GB of free storage space for each user. Therefore, many users don’t want to use iCloud for data transfer. But don’t worry! Here is a step-by-step guide on how to transfer data via iTunes:

Step 1: Install iTunes (if not already installed)

Ensure that you have iTunes installed on your PC. If it’s not installed, you can download and install it from the official Apple website.

Step 2: Connect Your iPhone to Your PC & Open iTunes

Use a USB cable to connect your iPhone to your PC and tap Trust if you see a prompt on your iPhone screen > Launch iTunes on your PC. It should recognize your iPhone and display its icon in the upper-left corner of the iTunes window.

Step 3: Transfer Data

Now, you can transfer data from your iPhone to your PC:

  • Click your iPhone icon in the upper-left corner of iTunes > Under Settings, click the type of data you want to transfer (e.g., Music, Photos, Apps, etc.).
  • Configure your preferences, such as selecting specific songs or apps, or setting up synchronization options.
  • Once you've configured your preferences, click the Apply or Sync button in the lower-right corner of the iTunes window.
