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

By Emily Watson, Tuesday, September 11, 2018

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 DoTrans, 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. It is the most straightforward and convenient method and it works for iPad Pro, iPad mini 4, iPad Air 2, iPhone X/8 Plus/7/6s/6, iPhone 5s/5c/5/4s and other previous iOS devices.

Is it up to your heart? Why not download FonePaw DoTrans and give it a try now?


How to Sync Everything from iPhone to iPad

1. Connect both iPhone and iPad to computer

After opening the program, connect your iPhone to the computer and then connect your iPad. Make sure that the latest iTunes is pre-installed on your computer, or they won't be detected by the program. Besides, you need to tap Trust on both devices to let the connection go well.

2. Sync files from iPhone to iPad
When both the devices are detected, you have two options to go.

First, to transfer files from iPhone to iPad directly, click "Device to iDevice" at the bottom line of the primary window or move to Toolbox option. The program will start to scan the content on your iPhone. Once completed, a pop-up window will show you what files and how many files will be copied to your iPad. Then, click "Start" to copy all files to iPad with one click. 

Note: Actually, you can select the destination device in the drop-down list.
