Goodbye iTunes? No Problem with DearMob iPhone Manager

macOS Catalina brought a lot of new features to the Mac, but it also created a headache for Mac users by removing iTunes and replacing it with the Music and TV apps. Where one app — iTunes — used to suffice for all of your media management needs, now there are two, or more if you count using Finder to move files. DearMob iPhone Manager brings back the ease of use of iTunes in a single powerful app.

What Does DearMob iPhone Manager Do?

DearMob iPhone Manager is the easiest way to back up your iPhone or iPad photos, music, videos, contacts, voice memos, calendars, books, browser bookmarks, messages, apps and more to your Mac or Windows computer. It works with many current and past-generation iPhones and iPads, making it your one-stop data transfer tool for iOS and iPadOS.

Just launch DearMob iPhone Manager and this clear, intuitive user interface appears:

Attach your favorite iOS or iPadOS device to your Mac with a Lightning cable, and you’re instantly ready to transfer data or backup your device. DearMob iPhone Manager doesn’t just grab your data and throw it onto your Mac without security. You can now rest assured that your video, photos and data are completely encrypted in transit and when stored on your Mac, a computer-attached DAS or NAS, or uploading to the cloud.

DearMob iPhone Manager uses multiple encryption algorithms to ensure your data is safe, including 1024-bit RSA, 256-bit AES, PBKDF2 and Argon 2. No other iOS data transfer and backup app offers this level of security. 

If you’ve ever wanted to create custom ringtones for your iPhone , DearMob iPhone Manager can do that for you as well. Want to use your iPhone as a flash drive for your important documents? Simply use the app’s Flash Drive feature to store any kind of file — Word, Pages, PDF, PowerPoint, etc… — with full options to create folders, and export, modify and delete files.

DearMob iPhone Manager is the Best iTunes Alternative for macOS Catalina

For those Mac users looking for iTunes alternatives, DearMob iPhone Manager fits the bill. 

The app is compact, taking up only 20% of the space that iTunes did. It’s also coded in such a way that it eliminates the problems that were so prevalent with iTunes — freezing halfway through a transfer and the inability to force quit the app.

Don’t take our word for it; check out the video below for a full tutorial on using DearMob iPhone Manager to manage your iPhone or iPad files.

The Files App is NOT The Total Answer for iPhone File Management

The iOS / iPadOS Files app that was released by Apple in iOS 11 is a good step in the right direction, but it has some limitations. — it’s limited to certain file types and doesn’t allow your iPhone to directly communicate with Mac or PC. That’s why a powerful iPhone file manager like DearMob iPhone Manager works beautifully in tandem with the Files app.

DearMob iPhone Manager lets users browse iPhone or iPad information by category — Photos, Music, Video/Movie, Files at the top level, and getting into subcategories of data security, contacts, podcasts, books, voice memos, apps, SMS messages, Calendar items, bookmarks, and just general files.

Select your files, then click “Export” to send them to your Mac or just drag and drop them to the Finder. Combining the Files app and DearMob iPhone Manager is the preferred way to make the most of your data easily and quickly

Why Is DearMob iPhone Manager The Best Way To Transfer iPhone Data?

If you don’t store your settings, photos and videos using Apple’s pricey iCloud plans, you need a way to transfer that information back and forth between your iOS or iPadOS device and your computer. DearMob iPhone Manager makes it simple to transfer iPhone data both ways between your devices. 

You can select all of your photos for transfer, or be more selective — the app can transfer by album, by date or even transfer just those photos that you pick randomly. 

Recent versions of iOS, iPadOS and macOS support a new photo format called HEIC, and DearMob iPhone Manager supports conversion of your photos from HEIC to JPG format so that those photos are easily viewable anywhere. 

Unlike some methods of transferring photos from your iOS devices to a computer,  DearMob iPhone Manager retains all EXIF photo metadata during transfer . This data includes items like the camera and lens used to take the photo, the time and date the photo was captured, and a geotag — the exact location where the photo was taken.


Apple loves to make things simple for users, but sometimes — like in the case of macOS Catalina — it does that by taking features that used to be found in one app and spreading them out to a group of apps. DearMob iPhone Manager brings back simplicity and power to all of your iPhone and iPad file management needs.
