iPhone Syncing On A New Computer?
Hello! I recently purchased a new computer and finally got around to downloading iTunes today. I want to sync my music (I know it will delete everything not purchased in the iTunes store) but I don’t want to erase my numbers, texts, ect. When I go to sync my phone, will iTunes delete EVERYTHING I have in it?
Auto sync with new computer will erase iPhone contents those not purchased from iTunes store. iTunes blocks this function since iTunes is the tool with one way to transfer files from iTunes to iPhone. You must utilize other tools for syncing iPhone on a new PC/Mac.
Sometimes, the content on the iPhone will lose, including many of the music and video that oneself like. So we need to some new, better tools than iTunes to make a backup to our own computers.
Dr.Fone for iOS recently updated with the new feature to backup all iPhone content to computer depends on your demands, e.g Photos & Videos, Messages & Call Logs, Contacts, Memos and other data. What’s more, you can directly export and print iPhone/iPad/iPod data on computer, and even selectively restore the backup data to the iOS device at will.
You can have a look of below steps to get the detail process, hope it useful.
