6 Best iTunes Alternatives for macOS, Catalina Included

Last Updated : Jan 4, 2020

"I need an iTunes alternative for Mac since Apple is cutting off iTunes."

iTunes shutting down on macOS Catalina? Well, right. Apple has replaced iTunes on Catalina with 3 applications - Apple Music, Apple TV, and Apple Podcasts, while leaving iTunes sync and backup function to Finder. iTunes for Windows and older version macOS will live on. Only that on macOS X 10.15 Catalina, the iTunes software application will disappear.

Instead of managing files under each Mac apps, you might need a integrated/centerized iTunes alternative to transfer, sync, backup all your data. Here below, we list out several for you to choose from:

Other iTunes Alternatives for Mac to Transfer Music

MacX MediaTrans – Feature-rich iTunes Alternative Mac (macOS Mojave)

MacX MediaTrans offers 3 flexible packs for you to choose & download, it's $29.95 for 1 1-year-license on 1 Mac, $35.95 for life-time-license on 2 Macs, and $65.95 for life-time-license on 6 Macs.

This stellar piece of gadget is in real terms more than just an iTunes alternative for Mac: Aside from the basic music, voice memo, ringtone making functions that you can rely on iTunes to do, it's a second-to-none choice for photo transferring between iPhone and Mac, indeed an overachiever if you're thinking of setting iTunes aside.

iMazing – iTunes Alternative Mac Good at Data Backup

Users who'd settle with iMazing can save a little when compared to the following options - $34.95 each with a free trial enabling anyone to transfer 50 items for free between iPhone and Mac (not per day). Just like DearMob iPhone Music Manager, it works well with 2-way music transfer. Yet unlike MacX MediaTrans, iMazing won't work with ebooks transfer (top 8 ebooks website to download ebooks for iPhone), which makes this alternative to iTunes for Mac less attractive to book buffs.

Highlight of iMazing, however, is that it provides services to create a backup of iPhone date, and restore a backup to iPhone wirelessly, and without a dime – which give another reason for users searching for an iTunes alternative Mac to do backups to choose this gadget.

Alternative to iTunes for Mac

iMobie Anytrans – The iTunes Alternative Mac Available in 8 Languages

$39.99 each a year doesn't make Anytrans a cheap iTunes replacement for macOS Catalina, but it's indeed a product of good-looking worth trying. Music, photos, apps… this data transfer tool covers generally all types of iPhone data and is particularly smart at backing up Whatsapp data. It can also be used for phone switch from Android to iOS.

Syncios Manager - iTunes Alternative to Manage both iOS and Android on macOS Catalina

This is a 1-stone-2-bird device management tool for Catalina users who enjoy both Android 9.0 and iOS 13 handholds. However, since this tool is not fully focused, it upholds many features yet is less well-polished than the other three managers - converting MKV files to iOS-compatible is one of those cases. Very basic but cover-all.

FoneTrans – The Very Flexible Alternative to iTunes for Mac for Phone-2-Phone Transfer

The release of FoneTrans is indeed a gap-filling design that any iTunes alternative Mac isn't shipped with yet: By enabling direct transfer between 2 iOS devices, FoneTrans allows you to transfer everything from iPhone to iPhone without external help – thus decreasing user's dependence on iTunes for data transfer while also make the whole process time-saving.

Granted, the price $49.95 each for an iTunes alternative Mac seems a bit like overcharging when it offers phone-2-phone transfer of music, videos, photos, contacts, voice memos, but it somehow missed the transfer of bookmarks, reminders, and recent calls, hence some steps away from complete iPhone backup.
