  • Good compatibility. It supports almost all iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch models and is fully compatible with the latest iOS 14.
  • Additional functions. Its video/audio downloader allows you to download Soundcloud music to iPad with ease. And its WhatsApp manager tool lets you transfer WhatsApp messages from iPhone/iPad to computer with ease.

So far, EaseUS MobiMover has helped thousands of iOS users move data between iOS devices. Now, it's time to let it help you transfer music from iPad to another iPad.
