The CopyTrans programs are lean on resources. Little is required to run and operate them on any Windows PC. Due to their ability to be used entirely offline, the CopyTrans programs enjoy a hard-to-match degree of privacy, safety and security when managing iOS contents like iPhone contacts, calendars, messages and notes.

OS requirements

Our programs are designed to run on Windows 10, 7, 8.1 on both 32-bit and 64-bit based machines.

NOTE: The old versions of CopyTrans programs can be run on Windows XP, here’s how to run CopyTrans programs on XP.

While the CopyTrans programs are not compatible with Mac OS, they can still be used on a Mac computer if you have a virtual Windows machine installed.

The program executables are small in size ranging between 9 and 15 MB and the programs can be run directly from the executables without requiring any other files.

Is administrator access required?

  • Administrator access is not required for running any of the CopyTrans programs.

  • Administrator access is only required when installing the iOS drivers.


The iOS drivers are needed on Windows systems in order for the computer – and in-turn, the CopyTrans programs – to correctly communicate with iOS devices. Once the iOS drivers are installed, you can use the CopyTrans programs with the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch of your choice.

CopyTrans has developed a streamlined method to install iOS drivers without the need for installing iTunes.

No need for iTunes

None of the CopyTrans programs with the exception of CopyTrans TuneSwift require iTunes installation in order to be operated as long as you installed the iOS drivers mentioned above.

Offline use, privacy, security

The CopyTrans programs can be run and operated without access to the Internet. In fact, the programs are particularly designed to help you remain outside Apple’s iCloud ecosystem.

CopyTrans Contacts and CopyTrans Shelbee are just two examples of programs that can be fully operational while remaining completely offline to manage and back up iPhone contacts, messages, calendars, notes and other iOS content.

Nevertheless, CopyTrans Contacts features powerful cloud connectivity that, if used, also allows connecting to enterprise and consumer-based cloud services for two-way transfer of iOS contacts, calendars and notes.

CopyTrans Shelbee, on the other hand, is designed to create full-featured iOS backups and keep them private by saving the backup contents locally on the PC.


Our FAQ section features some pretty powerful troubleshooting resources as well as user guides written in accessible language. We also provide dedicated support 365 days a year. If you have any questions related to the CopyTrans programs, do not hesitate to ask our Support Team at copytrans@copytrans.net.
