iTunes let you easily and conveniently sync the music, video, pictures and so on between your iPhone to the iTunes Library on computer, which will let you back up the data on the iDevices easily and refresh the content of iTunes Library in time. By default, when connect your iDevices to computer and run iTunes as well, the synchronization will be launched automatically. However, we still need to take some issues account when syncing the iTunes libraries.
Part 1: Below are some issues you may come across when synchronizing the data between your iDevices and iTunes:
1. Losing the data of your iDevices when transferring files from iTunes Library to it.
Every time you will see the message appears to notice you that “Do you want to erase this iPhone and sync with iTunes Library?” when connecting your iPhone to computer, if you just click to proceed, iTunes will erase all the data on your iPhone and then transfer the content of the iTunes Library on the computer to it. After that, you will lose all the data on your smartphone.
2. Don't need the data you don't want from the iTunes Library
iTunes enables you to sync all the data of iTunes Library to your device together. Sometimes we just need some of them and don't want to sync them all from the iTunes. In this case, only we can do is to copy and paste the files to our devices, however, on account of some restrictions, you cannot do it directly by yourself.
3. You are not willing to sync some private data on your iPhone to the iTunes Library
There are some individual video, photos and so on you still don't want them to be transferred to the iTunes when synchronizing the data between your device and computer. How to sync the data to iTunes selectively?
Issues just as listed above are really common to iUsers. Although iTunes brings us many conveniences to sync our personal data, we still want to do it with more options. Here is such an iDevice synchronization tool – iMusic, which can help us fix the issues shown above and sync our data between our iPhone and another iTunes Library efficiently.
Part 2. We walk you through how you are able to sync your iPhone with another iTunes Library with the use of our software ‘iMusic'.

Part 3. Reasons to Sync iPhone With New iTunes Library
Having the ability to freely move around your music when it's convenient to you is important. It allows for you to put the music that you listen to in the place that's best for you, and more importantly, where you want it to be. Why would you want to move your music around? There are many reasons for wanting to move your music around and sync iTunes library to iPhone, such as:
- Travelling. If you travel around a lot, it can get boring. Being able to change up the music that you have stored on your iPhone makes your travelling less boring and stops you from getting tired of listening to the same music every time.
- Clearing your iPhone. Every so often we will receive a notification on our iPhones telling us that we need to clear out space, and that can be especially annoying if you can see that there is plenty of space left for your iPhone to do what it needs to. If you're looking for a way to clear some space until your iPhones done the job that it needs, with iMusic you can easily transfer music off of your iPhone, and back on afterwards. No hassle at all!
- Backups. Not everyone is comfortable using the default iTunes to back up their iPhone's data, which is why people look towards other pieces of software. The best thing about using iMusic is that it is targeted towards handling music, rather than all types of data that is stored on an iPhone. This way, you know that your music is being handled specifically rather than how other types of data are handled.
As you can see, there are many different reasons for wanting to move your music around and sync iPhone to iTunes library, but how can you actually do it?
