Sync your iPhone, iPad, or iPod using your computer

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

If you're using macOS Catalina, use the Finder to sync content to your iOS or iPadOS device. If you're using macOS Mojave or earlier or a Windows PC, use iTunes. Before you use your computer to sync content to your iOS or iPadOS device, 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 devices when you aren't near your computer. Learn more about using Apple Music or iCloud Photos instead of your computer.
