How to Sync Music, Photos, Contacts from iPhone to iPad

By Emily Watson, Wednesday, Nov. 18, 2015

Hi, I have just purchased the new iPad Pro. Now, I want to sync my iPhone contacts, music, photos and videos to it. I have a bit of a problem, however. I cannot use iTunes to sync iPhone to iPad as I currently do not have access to the computer where my iPhone is synced with. Any clues or help is appreciated.

When it comes to syncing iPhone to iPad, you have the third choice except for syncing with iTunes and syncing with iCloud. With FonePaw iOS Transfer, not only can you sync music, photos and contacts from iPhone to iPad, but also you can sync videos, movies, playlists, books, TV shows, podcast, ringtones, etc. According to your needs, you can transfer files from iPhone to iPad wholly or selectively.
