Apple didn’t really have openness and freedom in mind when they designed the file transferring system that iOS would use. It’s overly complicated and not very intuitive. It also treats the user as if he can’t be trusted with the responsibility of being able to access iPad files. For some people, this is a deal-breaker and they move on to another tablet OS, but for those of us who like Apple’s products, we are simply left with the problem of how to access files on iPad in a way that is more efficient than the default methods.

How to Access iPad Files from PC

Since iTunes really doesn’t give you full access, one of the best things that you can do to enhance your iOS freedom is to use iMyFone TunesMate to truly have control over your files. TunesMate allows you to access your music, photos, contacts, SMS, books, ringtones, and other data very easily and with few restrictions. You can convert files before you are ready to transfer them, as well as back up your data in a very reliable way.

Here are the simple steps on how to access your iPad files from your PC using this software:

Step 1: Download and run TunesMate.

Step 2: Connect your device via USB. If no device is connection, the software will let you know.

Step 3: Now you can click on various tabs to access different kinds of information. You can choose to access or manage different kinds of media, like add or delete. You can also now import and export data to your device with the ease of simple file transfer.


Now, you probably realize the huge advantages that TunesMate has over iTunes, such as the enhanced functionality and freedom. However, is it easy to use? What are some of the most basic things that you can do with this software? Some of the key features of this application include:

  • Rebuild your iTunes library: Backup and restore your library anytime, rather than re-purchasing the music that belongs to you, as iTunes would have you do. This allows you to have way more control.
  • Transfer iTunes media to your device: Normally iTunes would not allow you to freely move media onto your device from your PC. Now you can, almost as easily as if you were transferring your files onto an external hard drive or flash drive.
  • Back up photos to PC: Back up those photos that you have painstakingly collected on your device after years of amateur selfies. With TunesMate, you can send them over to your PC and keep them there. The more devices that you spread your data to, the more robust your data will be and the less likely it will be that you will permanently lose your files.
  • iOS device to iOS device transfer: Under normal circumstances, Apple restricts your ability to share files between your devices, even if they are other iOS devices. Rather than having to use another machine as a medium, though, TunesMate allows you to transfer files directly between, say, your iPad and your iPhone. This can be done just as easily as if you were transferring files between your device and your PC.

iMyFone TunesMate truly liberates your iPad and makes it possible to do what you want with your media at last. So if you’re sick of all the restrictions imposed by Apple, make the smart decision to download a third-party file transferring app that will give you back some of your freedom.
