Part 3: Transfer Music/Videos/Photos between iPad/Mac/iTunes/Other Phones
iPad is not only a device for people to do work, but also a great player to enjoy movies, videos, music and even view photos. However, you can't transfer videos, music, playlists and photos freely because Apple doesn't allow you to. And you're limited to using only one computer to do the transfer thing via iTunes. Otherwise, all files on your iPad will be erased. If you're facing the problem as well, I recommend you try dr.fone
