Manage content on your iOS devices
You can transfer information and files between your iOS devices and computers, using iCloud 
or iTunes.
 
iCloud stores content such as music, photos, calendars, contacts, documents, and more, and 
wirelessly pushes it to your other iOS devices and computers, keeping everything up to date. 
See 
 below.
 
iTunes syncs music, video, photos, and more, between your computer and iPhone. Changes 
you make on one device are copied to the other when you sync. You can also use iTunes to 
sync files and documents. See 
 on page 18.
You can use iCloud or iTunes, or both, depending on your needs. For example, you can use iCloud 
to automatically send the photos you take on iPhone to your other devices, and use iTunes to 
sync photo albums from your computer to iPhone.
Important:  
To avoid duplicates, keep contacts, calendars, and notes in sync using iCloud or 
iTunes, but not both.
You can also manually manage content from iTunes, in the device’s Summary pane. This lets you 
add songs and videos, by choosing a song, video, or playlist from your iTunes library and then 
dragging it to your iPhone in iTunes. This is useful if your iTunes library contains more items than 
can fit on your device.
iCloud
iCloud stores your content, including music, photos, contacts, calendars, and supported 
documents. Content stored in iCloud is pushed wirelessly to your other iOS devices and 
computers set up with the same iCloud account. 
iCloud is available on devices with iOS 5 or later, on Mac computers with OS X Lion v10.7.2  
or later, and on PCs with the iCloud Control Panel for Windows (Windows 7 or Windows 8  
is required). 
Note:  iCloud may not be available in all areas, and iCloud features may vary by area. For more 
information, see 
iCloud features include:
 
iTunes in the Cloud—Download previous iTunes Store music and video purchases to iPhone 
for free, anytime. With an iTunes Match subscription, all your music—including music you’ve 
imported from CDs or purchased somewhere other than iTunes Store—appears on all of your 
devices and can be downloaded and played, on demand. See 
 on page 65.
 
Apps and Books—Download previous App Store and iBooks Store purchases to iPhone for  
free, anytime.
 
Photos—Use My Photo Stream to push photos you take with your iPhone to your other

people you choose, and let them add photos, videos, and comments. See 
 on page 74 and 
 on page 75.
 
Documents in the Cloud—For iCloud-enabled apps, keep documents and app data up to date 
across all your devices.
 
Mail, Contacts, Calendars—Keep your mail contacts, calendars, notes, and reminders up to date
