Apple has taken a very different approach as far as media management is concerned. Apple gives a whole new way by which you can manage content on the computer as well as on the device. Here are some key points that might enlighten your understanding:
iTunes for Management
The foremost thing to note is that the content on your iPod or your iOS devices is managed by software that Apple has named as iTunes. This software is much more than just a means to load your device with data. It can definitely do much more than that! The iTunes is in fact an entire media management system that is designed to organize and catalog your music, audio books, videos, podcasts, and even handle your iBooks and iOS applications. Contrary to the general belief iTunes doesn’t even require any Apple device to function. It is interesting and awesome media management software.
A Central Library
The thing that makes the iTunes different to other media libraries that people are generally accustomed to is that the fact it is a central library where you can manage all your data together and then transfer and use your data on different devices in portable form. Here all the data is collected and managed in the computer where you have installed the iTunes.
The best thing is that you just need to set up the device once and it will automatically sync all the data or the portion of the data to your device. This happens automatically every time you attach the device to the computer. Thus you need to set it up just once and the rest is easy and simple!
People might not want to maintain a library and simply want to transfer data from one device to another. That can be done in an effective way but we will leave that discussion to the next articles. This is just a formal introduction and I hope I was able to make you familiar with the basic concept of iTunes and how Apple perceives it!
