How to Transfer Data from iPhone to iPhone Without iCloud or iTunes

Sharing is caring. Tell your friends and help them solve the same problem.

Applied to: iPhone X, 8, 7, 6s, 6, 5s, 5, SE, and 4s running iOS 8 or later


iCloud or iTunes may be the first two ways you may think of when you need to transfer photos, contacts, videos, music, iBooks, calendars, notes, playlists or more from one iPhone to another. However, either of the both isn’t the best way because of the following reasons.

  • First, iTunes doesn't enable you to directly, selectively, or readably sync data from one iOS device to another.
  • Second, if you haven't purchased more space, iCloud is unavailable to sync files more than 5 GB. But the whole iOS data on iPhone is far more than 5 GB.
  • Third, iTunes or iCloud can’t work well from time to time due to all kinds of errors.

Therefore, if you want to avoid the problems listed above and would like to transfer data from iPhone to iPhone without iCloud or iTunes, you can check the free and straightforward method in this post to help you.
