    Just recently my macbookpro was stolen that I backup my iphone to. I didn't have a recent backup of data on this so I can't just plug in a harddrive and get everything back, but what I want to do is connect my iPhone to my replacement mbp and copy everything off it before it does a sync. I know that when it syncs for the first time it will erase everything so want to avoid losing all my photos, apps, music, contacts etc!

    I know Apple don't really tell you how to do this but I'm sure there is a way around it. Its very critical as I can't sync my phone until I sort this out otherwise I will lose everything.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

    Edit: Ideally I want to make a new backup of my iphone and then restore through iTunes.

    In iTunes, go the File>Transfer Purchases. This transfers all purchases, but nothing else. I don't know if there is a way the get EVERYTHING off.

    Does that copy everything including contacts and apps? Or only 'iPod' type files. Thanks
