Music is one of the main multimedia content for many iPhone users. Some of them store their music album on personal computer. To be able to enjoy the same music on iPhone, first we have to transfer it from our computer by using interface, iTunes software. We store music, videos, etc. at iTunes library. Through iTunes, we usually sync the contents with our iPhone.
Sync is an activity to synchronize contents stored in two different places. In this case, iPhone sync through iTunes, and if you sync through someone else’s computer, what will happen is that the iPhone will synchronize content between library of a computer that we sync to.
For example, we synced our iPhone to iTunes music library from computer 1, then our iPhone will have the same music content to iTunes library of computer 1. After some time you are syncing music with iTunes library of computer 2. Thus, the previous content will be changed by new contents from computer 2.
This thing can be so annoying, especially if we want to transfer a song from iTunes from another computer without losing the old one. Is there any method to transfer music without sync to iPhone from iTunes.so we don’t have to lose our old music content? Yes, there is a method.
