iPhonw 5S is the fastest and most advanced Apple smartphone released on September 18, 2013. iPhone 5S delivers an improved camera, a nifty fingerprint sensor, a next-gen CPU and motion-tracking chip, and free iWork app. iPhonw 5S runs the latest iOS system, iOS 7, which adds some nice step-ups including AirDrop file transfers and the Android-like Control Center.

When a new phone is purchased, the most headache thing is to move contacts from an old phone to a newer one. If the phone just purchased is iPhone 5S and the old phone you used is iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS or iPhone 3G, it will be quite difficult to copy contacts to iPhone 5S as Backup Assistant isn’t available on the iPhone. Apple will advise people to bring the two iPhones to the Verizon Store to have your contacts transfered to iPhone 5S. However, most people are unwilling to go to the Verizon Store for various reasons.

Then is there any way to copy contacts to iPhone 5S from iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS or iPhone 3G other than bringing your two iPhones to the Verizon Store? Absolutely, it will be quite easy with the help of Wondershare MobileTrans on Windows or ImToo iPhone Contacts Transfer on Mac.

Digital audio compressed by FLAC’s algorithm can typically be reduced to 50–60% of its original size but doesn’t sacrifice sonic quality. Thus FLAC is the better choice for lossless audio. However, to enjoy and play FLAC music on iPhone is not quite easy for music audiophile as FLAC is not a native support audio format by iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4 and is not natively supported by the latest iOS system iOS 7.

To play FLAC on iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, one method is to download a FLAC player for iOS from iTunes Store. The recommend method is to convert FLAC to iPhone friendly audio format. If you do not care about the audio quality, you can convert FLAC to MP3 to play FLAC on iOS 7 and iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4.
