    My iPhone and iPad are currently synced with my desktop iMac which stopped working around one week ago. I was wondering if there was a way to sync to my new MacBook Pro, without losing my music, apps, app data and photos.

    Do I need to use Senuti or something to transfer the music?

    What about app data and photos?

    Sorry if this seems like a stupid question.

    My understanding is you can back up your iPhone to iCloud, sync with the new computer (which wipes out your apps/music/etc), then do an iCloud restore to put everything back. Do some googling on this and you'll find lots of discussions.

    I've been wondering about this, as I will be setting up an iPhone 5 and ipad4 soon.

    My iPad 2 is backed up to my iMac, and has ridiculous number of apps. I don't want to put all of them on the iPad 4, and even less on the phone.

    Can't I download from my Purchased list to each, then backup both to my MacBook Air ... Leaving the ipad2 backup on iMac, without wiping anything out and without using iCloud? I don't have enough space in iCloud.
