There are many reasons why you need to transfer digital data stored in your iPhone, iPod, or any other mobile devices operated by iOS to your Mac computer. iPhone and iPod to Mac transfer becomes a necessity because iOS-operated mobile devices have limited storage space whereas a computer has much more space to store digital data that those mobile devices cannot accommodate. If you have a lot of videos in your iPod, for example, you have to transfer those videos to your computer before you can add other videos to your iPod.
Another reason why you want to transfer your digital data from your iOS-operated mobile devices to your Mac computer is because you want to back up those data. When you have several text messages stored in your iPhone and you regard those messages as important because they contain street addresses, passwords, etc, you may want to do iPhone SMS backup so that those SMSs are not accidentally deleted when you want to empty your inbox.
In addition to the two reasons mentioned above, there are many other reasons why transferring digital data from an iOS-operated mobile device to a computer, or vice versa, is necessary.
