Syncing an iPhone with another


This solution also works to Synchronize iPhone and iPad, two iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone, etc

As seen in a previous post, there's no problem Syncing several iPhones to a single Computer / iTunes

The problem starts when you try to Transfer Music from one iPhone to another

This would be easy if we could just Copy Songs from an iPhone to iTunes and then Synchronize another iPhone with iTunes

But, as explained in our Sync iPhone to iTunes tutorial, iPhone to iTunes transfers are not possible using iTunes


The solution:

First Import Music from iPhone to iTunes with a dedicated software

Then, Synchronize a second iPhone with iTunes, which, at the end equals to Transferring Songs from one iPhone to another

 

Just follow these steps


Notes & possible issues

  • This solution transfers all personal settings between two iPhones: playlists, ratings and so on ( see complete list )
     

    So, that's a very safe way to fully Synchronize two iPhones

    Hi. im trying to transfer my music from my old iphone to my new one that i just got today and it doesnt seem to be working on my itunes. How can i transfer without using itunes ?

    I don’t get it. If you use an ipad2 as your prime media device (no laptop/ibook etc) and you want to sync the, say music, videos etc onto your iphone (3) because that’s the one in your pocket – you can’t do it? You have to have iTunes resident on a computer and sync both independently off that?

      Dear Tim,

      That’s correct
      In the Apple / iTunes ecosystem your iPad is just a larger iPhone, not a computer
      It’s a peripheral that synchronizes with a computer / iTunes
