How to sync Android or iPhone with Windows 10
If you’ve upgraded to Windows 10, you can finally check out the Windows 10 Phone Companion app that Microsoft unveiled back in March. It is installed on Windows 10 by default. This app appears to reflect the “new Microsoft” that encompasses the leading mobile platforms in the mobile market (Android and Apple iOS) beyond its own Windows Phone.
Phone Companion app. it is, for the most part, just a tool that identifies Microsoft mobile apps and helps you install and configure them. These services are:
- OneDrive. backup images from mobile devices
- OneNote Mobile
- Office Mobile: Word, Excel, and PowerPoint
- Outlook mobile
Two soon-to-be-released products (greyed out and labeled “coming soon”) This is Cortana’s personal assistant for Android and iOS, and the ability to stream songs stored on OneDrive.
When syncing photos to Phone Companion, the application checks for a Microsoft account in services such as Hotmail, Outlook.com, etc.
It then asks if you need to download and install the OneDrive app for your mobile device. If you already have it installed, you can skip this step.
During the test, dozens of tags related to photography were found. Some of them are Animals, Beach, Group Photo, Street, People, Screenshot, and Sky. And like Google Photos, OneDrive detection sometimes makes interesting mistakes.
If you connect your Android phone or tablet to your Windows 10 PC using a USB cable, Phone Companion will identify the device by model name, showing battery status, as well as allowing you to manually move files using the Windows Photos app or Simple File Explorer. You don’t need an app to delete files. However, the information can be useful for ordinary users who do not delve into computers as deeply as we do.
If you are using a USB cable to connect your iPhone to your PC, Phone Companion will show less information than Android. You will only see the iPhone memory status. The app will not show any phone model or battery level information. However, it provides the same file access, allowing the iPhone user to copy and move files in any direction “phone-to-PC”
When the Phone app was introduced in March, many underestimated it as it simply presented information about existing apps and services. However, with the release of the application, many have reconsidered their attitude. If you have non-advanced familiar smartphone users using Microsoft products and services and upgrading to Windows 10, advise them to install the Phone Companion app. While you can always use existing services like Dropbox and Google Drive across multiple devices, it’s great to see Windows taking steps towards integrating with other mobile platforms.
How to sync iPhone with iTunes
Synchronizing iPhone with iTunes allows you to transfer data from your smartphone to your computer and vice versa, exchange music, photos, movies and TV shows, create backups and keep them up to date, as well as restore individual data and iOS as a whole, if the need arises. We will tell you how to organize the work of this function.
Sync iPhone with iTunes
In order to connect an iPhone to a PC and synchronize it with iTunes, you only need a complete USB cable and perform some preparatory operations on each of the devices.
- Launch iTunes and connect iPhone to an available USB port on your computer. A pop-up window will appear in the application interface with the question: “Do you want to allow this computer to access the information [device_name]”. Click “Continue” in it, after which you should perform some manipulations on your mobile device.
Go to iTunes and authorize your PC. this is necessary to establish “full trust” between devices, access to the information stored on them and work with it. The procedure itself involves the following actions:
- Open the “Account” tab on the top panel of the application and one by one go to the items “Authorization”. “Authorize this computer”.
In the window that appears with the authorization form, enter the login and password from your Apple ID account, and then click “Login”.
Tip: You can also go to control the Apple device from the sidebar of the application. there, in the “Devices” section, its name will be indicated.
But since within the framework of this article we are much more interested in data synchronization in general, we should stay in the “Overview” tab. It is in it that a backup copy of the data is created, and you can save it both in the corporate cloud storage and on a computer. The second option is more preferable for “emergency” cases. restoring the iPhone or switching to a newer (or just another) model. For the rest, a backup in iCloud is enough, especially since you can create it, as well as restore back, without connecting to a PC.

A little below the data backup section there is a block with automatic synchronization parameters, which should also be noted. Check the first two boxes if you want the iPhone to sync with iTunes every time you connect (the first) and if you want this procedure to be carried out also via Wi-Fi (the second). Click on the “Synchronize” button below to start the data exchange process.
Note: Currently, the option “Sync with this iPhone via Wi-Fi” only works on versions of iOS 12 and below.
Synchronization takes several steps, and you can watch its progress in the iTunes area shown in the image below.
Once the procedure is complete (1), you can disconnect the iPhone from the computer. It is better to do this by safely removing it by pressing the corresponding button in the application interface (2), and only then remove the cable.
How To Transfer Everything From Old iPhone To New iPhone
Resolving sync issues
iTunes, despite its versatility, has never been a benchmark software. So, in the macOS environment, Apple abandoned it as an integrated solution, instead dividing it into several system utilities, and on Windows this program quite often works with malfunctions and errors. The latter include the problem of synchronization, or rather, the lack of such. It occurs for various reasons, and the main ones are malfunctions of devices (both a smartphone and a computer), an outdated software version, a damaged USB cable or the corresponding PC port, and also some others. To learn more about each and, more importantly, take the necessary measures to ensure the operability of the function of interest to us within the framework of this article, the instruction presented at the link below will help.
The procedure for syncing iPhone with iTunes is not particularly complicated and is carried out in just a few steps. Problems encountered in the process are often easily remedied.
How to sync iPhone with Windows 10
Just because iPhones are so much easier to connect to MacBooks doesn’t mean they can’t run Windows 10. It takes a little more patience and time to sync iPhone data with Windows 10, but it’s okay if your laptop is running Windows 10.
Of course, you won’t be able to connect the iPhone as it connects to the MacBook. When synchronizing, it will not be possible to simply move files in the explorer from the phone to the computer in the same way as Android, but a couple of clicks and a little ingenuity will help you work with your iPhone on Windows just as well.
Copy to iPhone
Synchronizing music, photos, movies and other video content requires mastering the iTunes program, which can be downloaded here. You can import music by opening the File menu Add folder to library and add a folder. Individual files are also added from the menu by choosing File Add File to Library. After adding your music library to iTunes, follow these steps:
Connect your iPhone to laptop with a Lightning cable.
Click the Continue button when you see a request to connect your phone to grant access to the system.
Click on the phone icon in the top bar of iTunes.
Click the Synchronize button.

The syncing process may take some time, depending on how much content needs to be synced.
Similarly, you can sync the rest of the content from your computer to iPhone.
Pick up your iPhone and check your photos, music, apps, and videos to make sure you’re getting all the files from your Windows 10 PC.
Copy from iPhone
But copying from iPhone to Windows 10 computer is really not an easy operation. In an effort to avoid piracy and illegal copying of content, Apple has made it very difficult for ordinary users to sync computer with iPhone. Fortunately, there are some workarounds that we will now look at.
- Music and films. You can move media files from iTunes to your phone from your computer, you cannot send them from your phone to your computer. However, if you buy media from iTunes on your iPhone, you can get it to your desktop via the cloud. As long as you maintain one Apple ID, you will be able to download all your songs and movies again from iTunes on your computer at no additional cost.
- Photos. To import photos from iPhone to Windows 10, I recommend using the cloud service OneDrive, the client of which can easily be found in the Apple Store.
- Files. The cloud service is your best friend for file syncing. You can use almost any cloud service for these purposes, the client of which can be found in the Apple Store. Although I personally use Dropbox, you can also use iCloud. I also recommend that you read the article The best cloud services of the Russian Internet for storing information, if you do not know which cloud service to choose.
The way to sync iPhone with Windows 10 is not that difficult, you just need to download and install the iTunes application on your Windows 10 computer, and then the application will do everything for you. But once you want to get files from iPhone to your Windows 10 computer, it becomes sad. But cloud services will allow you to send any files from iPhone to Windows 10 computer.
Synchronizing iPhone with computer
The “native” program for synchronizing an apple smartphone with a computer is iTunes. However, third-party developers offer a lot of useful analogs with which you can perform all the same tasks as with the official tool, but much faster.

When the driver installation is complete, connect your iPhone to your computer using the original USB cable. After a couple of moments, iTools will detect the device, which means that the synchronization between the computer and the smartphone is successfully established. From now on, you can transfer music, videos, ringtones, books, applications from computer to phone (or vice versa), create backups and perform a lot of other useful tasks.
Disconnect iPhone from computer and launch iTools. On iPhone, open Settings and select the “General” section.
Open the “Sync with iTunes over Wi-Fi” section.
