When you have got a new computer or changed a new work, you may have to sync iPad to computer. When you want to keep your iPad data safe or protect your iPad files from being lost, you need to sync iPad to new computer. Here are also a lot of other reasons why you want to sync iPad with new computer.
“Syncing iPad to new computer”, which is the synonym of “Transferring iPad data to new computer”, has been a very hot topic among iPad users. For most iPad users, they will use iTunes to accomplish the syncing issue. iTunes is cool and easy to use, the syncing process is also easy. You only need to click your device’s name and the sync button at the bottom of iTunes’ window. The iPad computer syncing will begin. But be careful, the files you get from other sources like CDs cannot be synced to computer and after the syncing, those files will be erased from your iPad, too. So using iTunes to sync iPad with new computer is easy but you should take the risk of losing files.
You are able to use cloud service to sync iPad with computer. Why people would like to use cloud service like iCloud, Dropbox, SkyDrive and others? The most important reason as far as I am concerned, is these cloud services are convenient for users to get the data. But for syncing iPad with computer, the cloud services may lack power. Because most of the cloud services are premiums, users are able to get some free storage space but have to pay for larger space. Maybe users don’t want to spend too much money on the cloud service, so those cloud service can only be used for syncing some small files.
Also, you can use software to sync iPad to computer. Many pieces of software are helpful on this issue. But speaking of the fastest and most user-friendly ones, I would like to introduce these two pieces: Leawo iTransfer and Wondershare TunesGo Retro. These two pieces of software can help you to sync iPad to new computer in minutes.
