How do I connect my IPhone to a Windows Computer?

In this tutorial, you will learn:

• why syncing files is important
• how to use your charging cable
• how to connect your iPhone device to your Windows computer
• how to navigate sync options
• how to automatically sync your files to your computer

Sometimes it is necessary to move files from your phone to your computer, but the user needs a more streamlined, easier process than emailing the files to themselves. Although most files saved to the phone may be synced to the computer, most people typically transfer music, photos, and videos from their phones to their computers. It is also possible to sync files on the computer to your phone. People typically download music, photos, and documents from their computers to their phones.

Although there are many ways to sync your Android device with a Windows computer, the simplest way would be to physically connect the phone to the computer via USB cable. This cable is the same one that you use to charge your phone.

Getting Started
