Step 1: I download and install PhoneTrans on my Mac (Mac OS X EI Caption). Once I connect my iPhone 6S to computer, PhoneTrans detects it immediately.

My Opinion on PhoneTrans

According to my test, PhoneTrans is a cool software to manage my device data. It is easy to use and it supports transfer data freely. With its fast transfer speed, I can transfer my data without barriers.

But I need to point out that PhoneTrans does have its disadvantages. It only supports transfer some media data, like Music, Ringtones, Movies, Photos. But sometimes, I also want to transfer my Personal data (messages, notes, contacts, etc). It’s a pity I cannot use it to manage these data. Besides, it only supports transfer data between device and computer. It could be better if it can transfer data between iOS devices. But as a free software, I think its positive qualities far outweigh any negative ones.

All in all, I think PhoneTrans is a nice iOS content transfer software. And it is easy to use with its simple interface. If you want to transfer media data freely, PhoneTrans is worthy of trying.

Alternatives of PhoneTrans (Free & Paid)
