Sync your iPhone, iPad, or iPod using your computer

Learn how to sync music, movies, and more using your Mac or PC.

Before syncing your content, consider using iCloud, Apple Music, or similar services to keep content from your Mac or PC in the cloud. This way, you can access your music, photos, and more on your iOS or iPadOS devices when you aren't near your computer.

Depending on the macOS version your Mac has, you might need to use Finder or iTunes to sync your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch using your computer. If you have a PC, you will need to use iTunes or the Apple Devices app to sync with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.
