Hey guys, I have always wondered why its so difficult to transfer itunes when you buy a new computer. Never had to go through through knife personally as i have always formatted before to be safe. However, its different this time as I have my iPhone 5 and iPad air jailbroken and formatting them is not an option as i wont be able to jailbreak them once again. So i have gone though numerous articles and am not able to derive a definite conclusion. I think copying to an external hard drive is the best option. But, i just want to know that when i connect my iphone and ipad to the new computer after i have transferred everything, will i be asked to format the iphone. Please clarify on the confusion. Thanks.
