I’m definitely not the first person on this planet who uses an iPhone, but doesn’t own a Mac. Those who suffer the same wrath would understand how awful it feels when you need to transfer a file from your iPhone to your Windows PC.
Most people use iTunes to transfer files to their PC. However, the PC version of iTunes is really not as good as the Mac version is. It’s also very complex and time consuming. It’s also mandatory for you to have a Data Cable available so that you may connect your phone to your PC. There are other apps available too, but they are just as complex.
After doing some research, I came across a very interesting feature which is actually the easiest method of transferring files from iPhone to PC. The feature named ‘Wi-Fi File Transfer’ allows users to transfer files wirelessly from their iPhone to their PC and vice versa.
Although this feature isn’t built primarily into the iOS platform, but there are apps available on the App Store which allow users to benefit from this feature. For your convenience, I’ve listed together the 10 best apps which contain the Wi-Fi File Transfer feature;

Its WiFi Music Manager feature allows you the options of audio import, music import, song import and mp3 import without using iTunes.
