How To Sync Mac To iPhone And iPad Without iTunes In macOS Catalina

Here we will show you how to sync your Mac to iPhones and iPads with macOS Catalina even with iTunes is gone

You may have already known that iTunes has gone and in its place, Apple now offers three separate apps for Podcasts, Music, and TV. This might not be a big problem at all until you update your device to macOS Catalina.

Now, you can no longer sync, back up, update, and restore iPads, iPhones, and Apple TV in the old way. However, we have a substitute to help you. Here we will show you how to sync your Mac to iPhones and iPads with macOS Catalina even with iTunes is gone.

With the departure of iTunes on macOS Catalina, users will have to go to Finder to manage iPad and iPhone. All you have to do is to familiarize yourself with heading to Finder whenever you need to backup, update, sync, as well as restore iPad and iPhone, and everything else will feel just like the old time.

Those who possess the Apple TV HD (of the fourth generation or earlier) can restore the device with Mac. Since Apple TV 4K does not have the USB-C port so when you need restoration, you will have to take it to Apple.

Here is how you can sync Mac to iPad and iPhone with macOS Catalina even without iTunes:

  • Plug in the iPad and iPhone with a USB-C or a Lighting cable.
  • In case it does not work automatically, open Finder manually.
  • Under Locations, find the connected iPad and iPhone.

The picture below shows what connected iPad and iPhone look in macOS Catalina:

Once you do, you will see a familiar interface like what you have with macOS Mojave. From here, you have the option to sync, manage, and transfer files.
