This post introduces some of the top best iPhone transfer/manager software with their innovation features, the trial links, the prices, and the recent coupons I collected. Hope this would be helpful. (These apps also works for iPad and iPod devices)

iMazing iPhone Transfer
iMazing is an iPhone transfer software created by DigiDNA, a Switzerland software developer. This program makes it easy to transfer, backup, print, and manage data on your iPhone and iPad. You can absolutely use it as a replacement for iTunes to manage your device. But actually, it could be better than iTunes on data transferring.
So what outstanding features you can get from iMazing? Let’s have a look
1-Click Quickly Transfer Data from/to iPhone
With iMazing, you can easily transfer photos, music, contacts, videos, ringtones, and more between iPhone and computer (or another iOS device). And the Quick Transfer feature makes it easier with a simple Drag and Drop.
1-Click Export & Print Messages
With iMazing, you can easily export messages, notes, contacts, and other text-format data to PDF, Text, and CSV, through which, you can easily view, read, and print the information. And it also added a Print button to directly print your text message, iMessage, and WhatsApp messages.
Wireless iPhone Backup and more
iMazing added a Time-Machine-like feature to wirelessly backup your important data in a safe way, and the backup will be encrypted well. Different from iTunes, iMazing will allows you to browse and extract files and contents from the backup files.
iMazing also offers some smart tools like checking iPhone status and battery health, migrating data from an old iOS device to the new one, managing apps, force restarting the device and etc. This software has a good design and follows closely with the development of Apple products and services.
iMazing Free Trial, Price, and Coupon Codes
iMazing is fully compatible with the latest iOS 14 and iPhone 12, and it offers a free trial for people to try before purchasing. But, the trial version will restrict the amount that people can transfer and backup on an iPhone.
To use all the features, you can buy the iMazing license code. There are two types of licenses starting from $34.99 on its official website. The great news is that you can get a 25% iMazing discount with which you can get an iMazing license for no more than 30 US dollars.
iMobie Inc., released iOS transfer apps since 2012, including PodTrans, PhoneTrans, PhotoTrans, and AppTrans. And some of these apps did get a good reputation. For example, the PodTrans (iPod music transfer) got so many 5 stars ratings on CNET.
After several years, iMobie gathered all its previous transfer apps into a new brand – AnyTrans. And this brand keeps adding new features, and now the latest version of AnyTrans collected a bunch of features, including transferring iPhone data, accessing files on iPhone backups, downloading Youtube videos, making ringtones, mirroring iPhone screen to the computer, as well as migrating data from Android to iOS.
AnyTrans vs iMazing
Just like iMazing, AnyTrans is also equipped with features of transferring and backing up data on your iPhone. And it runs on the computer, too.
The difference is that AnyTrans does better than iMazing while moving data between two different mobile systems and downloading online videos (It has so many useful features to manage your iPhone data and files).
But the disadvantage of this software is that it got a little complicated interface and an unstable performance on data transferring. For me to choose an iTunes alternative, I choose iMazing because it is easy to use, and just like the built-in app on my computer.
AnyTrans Free vs Paid Version
AnyTrans iPhone transfer isn’t free, too. But it also gives you a free trial version, with which you can transfer several items, download online videos.
If you want to get AnyTrans full version and enjoy all its features, you need to buy its license. There are 3 kinds of licenses: 1 Year Single License ($39.99), LifeTime Single License (49.99$), and Family License for 5 computers ($69.99). To buy at a cheaper price, you can try this AnyTrans 50% discount coupon (updated on Oct 1st, 2021).
iExplorer – iPhone to Computer Transfer
iExplorer by Macroplant is an old brand for iPhone data transferring. And it’s very popular with iOS users since it does a good job on iPhone transferring. With this tool, you can easily export music, photos, contacts, and other files from iPhone or iTunes backup to the desktop of your computer. And the whole process is safe. (We’ve scanned this iExplorer using Secure software, and it shows there is no virus hidden.)
iExplorer VS iMazing/AnyTrans
Just like AnyTrans and iMazing, iExplorer is also a computer-based iPhone data transfer program. And it is good at transferring large numbers of big data files, such as hundreds of pictures, videos, and songs. Certainly, you can play and preview those items before you export them to a computer.
But it is a pity that iExplorer doesn’t add some meaningful features and improve its interface for a long time. And most of its recent updates are bug fixes and iOS compatibility updates. Compared with the rivals, it has no advantage in price and features now. (The new version even didn’t support Wi-Fi connecting.)
iExplorer Free vs Paid
The latest version of iExplorer is 4.2.8. And you can download it here. And the trial version allows you to preview contents, but limit the numbers of the files that you can transfer. Besides, it will keep showing a pop-up window requiring you to register and buy it. The price of the iExplorer is started from $39.99, and up to $69.99.
Wondershare TunesGo also can do somethings that iTunes can’t. For example, transferring iPhone contents to another device (computer, iOS, and Android) and converting media files to iOS supported files.
Compare with the above two apps, TunesGo only some basic transfer features like move data between iPhone and computer, and manage iPhone data by deleting, adding, exporting, etc. And recently Wondershare updated this iPhone transfer app to be compatible with iOS 14.
Aiseesoft FoneTrans – Transfer 16+ FileTypes on iPhone
