Although iTunes is the primary application used to transfer information from your computer to your iPhone, you can also send documents, images and music to your iPhone through the use of third-party applications found in the App Store. These file transferring applications range in price--some are free--and require a shared Wi-Fi connection as well as installation on both your computer and the iPhone for successful transferring. Other requirements include the iPhone 3.0 software, which can be downloaded through your iTunes application.
Things You'll Need
- File transferring application
- iPhone 3.0 or later software
- Wi-Fi connection
- Windows XP or later
- Mac OS X 10.4.11 or later
