This article will introduce a brand-new way of transferring movies to iPhone without iTunes at all.

Globally, the total shipments of computers (including laptops and desktop-PCs) are around 258 million in 2016, inclusive of all brands. Comparatively, about 211.88 million Apple iPhones solely have been sold in 2016. From very early on, people have kindly "abandoned" their computer at home imperceptibly and turned them into furnishings. Why? The most convincing reason may be the portability of mobile phone, which make it convenient to be carried everywhere, and turned on and off. Accordingly, "lazy" users are getting used to watching movies on iPhone.

Last year, Apple promoted the storage of new model of iPhone to 256GB maximally, making it more movie-saving-friendly. Supposedly, whopping 100 movies can be put into a 256GB iPhone 7 Plus. The giant screen is another factor that pleases movie addicts, but how to transfer movies to iPhone?

How to Sync HD Hollywood/Bollywood Movies to iPhone?

For adding movies to iPhone, the first thought pops up to one's mind would be "using iTunes". But ask yourself, does iTunes really a surefire gear for file transfer? Indeed, except for syncing the movies purchased from iTunes, it is not the best choice for most Apple users: vague instruction (not quite user friendly), superfluous pop-up windows, and tedious operations (especially for Windows users). Most of all, the auto sync will cause data loss on your iPhone easily. Also, please note that the pictures and videos that have been synced from computer to iOS device cannot be synced to computer again. An alternative is needed.

Step-by-step Guide of Transfer Movies to iPhone without iTunes
