Compared to iTunes, which takes up resources and is slow, iExplorer can be said to be a very simple and fast synchronization tool. It transfers music, messages, photos, files and all other content backed up by any iPhone, iPod, iPad or iTunes to any Mac/PC computer. It is very suitable for novice users.
