FonePaw iOS Transfer and Tenorshare iPhone Care Pro are two of the best iTunes alternative to transfer iPhone/iPad contacts, photos, videos from/to computer, what are the differences between the two and which one should we choose? You can make a firmly decision after reading this post.
FonePaw iOS Transfer breaks iTunes restrictions to sync iPhone files without iTunes. With this iOS files manager, we can manage our music and other files easier and quicker, and moreover, it offers more edit choices than that in iTunes. These choices include adding new files from computer to iPhone/iPad/iPod, exporting files from iDevice to PC, or deleting unwanted files in batch.
iPhone Care Pro is not only an iOS transfer and management tool, but also provides other iOS tuneup and optimization functions. With this tiny utility, you can clean unwanted junk files, manage iOS files, filter out in-app Ads, backup & restore iPhone data without iTunes, fix iOS stuck, and repair iOS system issues.
FonePaw iOS Transfer is twice the download size of iPhone Care Pro, for which I do not have a good first impression with this product.
Both products come with a neat interface and are designed user-friendly. It is much more intuitive to use any of the products than iTunes.
Both of the iOS transfer tools supports all iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch models including the latest iPhone SE, iPhone 6s (Plus) and smaller iPad Pro, iPod touch 6/5/4. And different iOS (9.3.1/9.3/9.2/9/8/7) are perfectly compatible with both products.
There are some differences with file types that can be transferred and synced. See below comparison chart. In general, iPhone Care Pro can transfer and manage 8 types of files in iPhone/iPad/iPod, while FonePaw only supports 6 types in total.

FonePaw provides a free trial version with limited functions. In the demo version we can transfer limited files only, and with a 30 days’ use. You need to pay for $39.95 (1PC) or $59.95 (3PCs) to transfer files freely.
On the contrary, iPhone Care Pro is completely free of charge in transferring files from iPhone, iPad, and iPod to PC/Mac or back. It integrates 6 big features and offers Free Files Manager and Free Cleanup without any restrictions. You just need to pay for $29.95 (3PCs) when you need other four advanced features.
In our test to transfer contacts, the two products act well and allow creating new contacts, exporting contacts to PC, deleting contacts, and merging duplicated contacts. Well, Fonepaw supports to import contacts from Outlook/vCard file which does not support in iPhone Care Pro.
Both FonePaw and Tenorshare iPhone Care Pro are the best iTunes alternative for iPhone data transfer, and both have pros and cons. Personally I prefer iPhone Care Pro as it is free but supports more types of files. I choose it as FonePaw alternative to manage iOS files.
