Xender For iPhone – How To Connect and Transfer Files With Android

Xender For iPhone still comes very much in handy in 2017. If you are an iPhone user, you are probably aware of the limitations with iOS.

One of the prominent being unable to download files. By files, i am making reference to music and video files. Being able to download pictures on the platform is still very valid.

Other than being able to download files, sending and receiving files from iPhone to other OS platform like android, can be a pain in the butt.

Jailbreaking sorta makes the experience better. However, jailbreaking voids your warranty (that’s if you still have one). So, in most cases, I wouldn’t exactly advise jailbreaking. Except you care less about your phone’s warranty.

Of course, there are steps in-other to make the transmission a success. Steps I’d be outlining here. First off, you should download Xender for iPhone HERE. Alternatively, search the App store for Xender and download.

  3. You can download files on the iPhone via Xender. However, that doesn’t apply to system files. System files like Videos stored under the TV app cannot be deleted. These files however, can be sent via Xender for iPhone.

Best Way To Transfer Music Files To The Music Library On iPhone?

However, for flexibility sake, the default apps on iOS is always recommended. And since you’d like to have the files on their respective apps, using a computer is better advised.

This, you can attain using iTunes. However, if you just need to transfer specific files and not synchronize, iTransfer could come in handy.
