If you own an iPhone or an iPad or any other iOS device, you will agree that managing the data on your device with your computer is a bit of a hassle. iTunes is a nice piece of software, but it really is quite slow on Windows, and file transfers take a long time. Syncing photos, backing up data, converting media files, and other such tasks require an application that is smoother and speedier than iTunes on Windows. Thankfully, WinX MediaTrans is a very good replacement for iTunes.

So what does the WinX MediaTrans actually do? The software basically lets you manage iPhone and is a complete iOS file manager.

In a test, the tool transferred 100 images of 4K resolution in just 8 seconds, which is  you would expect from the best iTunes alternative. Sorting through and selecting photos to sync is a breeze with this tool.

Then comes the “Music Manager”, which lets you view your music tracks and create or edit playlists. You can delete any music files you want and edit their details. The “Video” option does the same for video files and makes it a breeze to manage all your media in one place. Also, if you have any video or music files on your iOS device that are not supported natively in the device, WinX MediaTrans automatically converts the files in batch or separately.


The “Flash Drive” option lets you browse your iOS device as a flash drive and add/remove files from it. This feature can come in handy when you don’t have a pen drive or any other storage device lying around when you need one. The “Books” function lets you manage ePUB and PDF eBooks and you can convert them to various formats including TXT and HTML.

With the “Voice & Ringtone” option, you can handle your Podcasts, voice memos, and iTunes U files. You can also create new ringtones for your iPhone from your favorite music files.
