Instead of using limited data management in iTunes, take advantage of AnyTrans’ Device Manager feature to control your iPhone 12 data. Use it to transfer data like your photos, music, messages, contacts and more from iPhone 12 to your computer, and vice versa. You can use the Device Manager whenever you’d like to selectively transfer those items between your iOS device and the computer. The AnyTrans Support website has many useful tutorials covering the app’s features, including a guide about how to transfer data from one iPhone to another.

Media Downloader makes it easy to grab online music and videos from more than a thousand sites to your computer in an iOS-friendly format. Apple requires you to go through iTunes to load your iPhone with music, and you cannot download online videos, so this is an important feature for those who want to enjoy online music and videos without an Internet connection.
