The first version of iTunes was released more than eighteen years ago and it's been under constant development ever since. However, we can all agree that this application has become quite bloated. Today, many owners of Apple devices are trying to run this application as rarely as possible. This is due to the fact that iTunes has a somewhat confusing user-friendly interface and poor responsiveness. Therefore, it is not surprising that now there are several alternative solutions that can replace iTunes. One of them is MacX MediaTrans.

MacX MediaTrans - A Viable iTunes Alternative!

In terms of functionality, MacX MediaTrans is very similar and sometimes superior to iTunes, while in terms of interface, the MacX program is completely different from the Apple-made application. When creating their program, the developers of Digiarty Software relied primarily on minimalism, convenience and speed of work. It is for this reason that in the main window of the application there are neither additional panels, nor bulky switches, nor numerous menus. Instead of all this, users are only met with a few buttons, each of which gives access to their respective sections.

In addition to the navigation keys, this application's main screen also displays information about the connected device: its name, total storage capacity and remaining free space, operating system version and current battery charge.

Photo Transfer

iOS to Mac Photo Transfer

Like iTunes, the MacX MediaTrans application allows users to work with photos and images stored in the iOS device’s memory. However, unlike Apple’s proprietary utility, a third-party application makes it easier and faster to perform this procedure.

With the help of MacX MediaTrans, users will not only be able to immediately view all the images stored in the iPhone and iPad’s memory but also create new albums, in just one click, transfer pictures from iPhone to Mac or PC and upload new pictures to a smartphone or tablet.

But that's not all. MacX MediaTrans allows you to quickly download large amounts of information in just a few seconds. According to the developers, exporting 100 photos taken in 4K resolution will take about 10 seconds. True, in order to achieve such results, users will need the original cable.

Another useful feature of MacX MediaTrans is the ability to convert images from HEIC format to JPEG. And for this, users will not need to carry out any additional manipulations — simply select the appropriate item when exporting images to a computer. The application will do the rest on its own.

Music Transfer

iOS to Mac Music Transfer

The music section in MacX MediaTrans is also noticeably different from that in iTunes. First, thanks to the iPhone manager utility from Digiarty Software, users have the ability to quickly and without any problems download new songs to the device’s memory. Secondly, if necessary, iPhone and iPad owners can change the metadata of individual tracks and move them between playlists. And third, users can quickly create ringtones. MacX MediaTrans has special tools for this.

The only drawback of this section is the lack of a music player, or rather, buttons that allow you to control the playback of the track. If necessary, users can listen to a separate song, but neither adjusting the volume nor rewinding part of the track will work. In fact, only two buttons are available in MacX MediaTrans are - 'Start' and 'Stop'.

Video Transfer

iOS to Mac Video Transfer

The section with the videos also does not look overloaded. If necessary, users can, in a couple of clicks, unload the captured videos and upload to the device’s memory. Moreover, it’s not at all necessary to convert the video into a suitable format - MacX MediaTrans can do this operation on its own after downloading the file to the device.

eBook Manager

It is worth noting that the book section in MacX MediaTrans allows you to interact only with the native iOS reader - iBooks. Working with a library of third-party applications for reading books will not work. However, even in this case, MacX MediaTrans will have something to offer.

For example, in this section, users can not only export the book from the device to a computer but also choose the format for export (from EPUB to PDF / TXT / HTML). At the same time, in the process of exporting, whenever possible, not only fonts and pictures will be saved, but also formatting, and even links.

Using the iPhone and iPad as a Flash Drive

Using iOS as Flash Drive

MacX MediaTrans also offers owners some additional features that are not present in iTunes. So using the iTunes alternative utility from the developers of Digiarty Software, users will be able to use any Apple-made smartphone or tablet as a flash drive. However, to access previously recorded files, you will have to use MacX MediaTrans. Other third-party solutions still don't support this feature.

Separately, it is worth noting that the utility from Digiarty Software even has a special tool for encrypting files. With it, users can set a password on almost any file - from a music track to a photo. You can also decrypt a file using MacX MediaTrans.


MacX MediaTrans is not available for free. However, before buying, users can test the application. To do this, just go to the official website of the developers, download the free version of MacX MediaTrans for macOS or Windows, and then get acquainted with the possibilities of the iPhone data transfer tool.

Giveaway Offer!

In general, the trial version works with restrictions on the export and import of files. Fortunately, the developer is running a giveaway campaign to celebrate the launch of Apple's new iPhone and iOS. Ending with October 24, all TechNadu readers can get MacX MediaTrans license for free, instead of paying $59.95. Enter now!
