How to Transfer Files from Mac to iPhone/iPad Using USB without iTunes

If you want to transfer files, like photos or videos from Mac to the iPhone/iPad, generally speaking, you get four possible methods by using iTunes, iCloud, AirDrop and a third-party application.

  • iTunes enables you to sync the previous backup data from Mac to iDevice, but the synchronization is an overridden operation that may accidentally result in data loss.
  • iCloud allows you to sync contacts, photos, notes, etc. from Mac to iPhone/iPad wirelessly. However, the biggest limitation of the iCloud update is the music file, which is one of the essential contents for Mac and iPhone users.
  • AirDrop offers you an option to transfer photos, videos, music from Mac to iPad without a computer. What if you want to download PDF or sync the contacts from Mac to iPhone, which are not supported by AirDrop?

To avoid the disadvantages of the above three tools while transferring data from Mac to iPhone or iPad, here we recommend you try EaseUS MobiMover to you to transfer files from Mac to iPhone/iPad using USB without iTunes or iCloud anymore.
