    plugged in my iphone (with the latest ios update) to put some music on it, then discovered that only windows explorer and itunes even acknowledged it ****ing exists, so i had to use itunes and lost 20 gigs of music thanks to apples nazi-germany-like library system

    how do i make this not like this

    You can only use iTunes to sync music to the iPhone.
    No other way.

    How many years ago?
    Apple blocks all 3rd party sync programs with every update and only itunes can sync content into the iphone.
    That's been known forever.
    Its not android or windows mobile. Every major thing is done via itunes or icloud with iphones.

    You are SOL.
    Apple will keep on blocking access to 3rd party programs like that.

    They don't want any unauthorized programs accessing their proprietary system.
    Its a closed and gated system. Always been like that.
    Apple controls every single aspect of it.

    You got no option.
    You need itunes or icloud for just about everything when using an idevice.

    This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. What is the issue with importing all your music files into iTunes? If you are so opposed to using iTunes then it is time for you to move to another platform...Android? There are plenty of decent Android handsets now.
