iCloud Photos keeps your photos and videos safe, up to date, and available automatically on all of your Apple devices, on iCloud.com, and even your PC. iCloud Photos always uploads and stores your original, full-resolution photos. You can keep full-resolution originals on each of your devices, or save space with device-optimized versions instead. Either way, you can download your originals whenever you need them.

I presume this is best place rather then Mac forum, if i'm wrong i'm sorry and please move for me.😊


OK so i have a windows laptop that is a friends and he has his user accounts setup as just 'User' not his name or anything like that, so he has gone and bought a Mac Air (I think it was) and he want his itunes from windows moved over to his Mac, i have no idea if this can even be done.


My work has always been in windows and i know nothing about Mac hardware or software, so my questions are

  1. Can this even be done?
  2. If so what files/folders do i need to save from his Windows laptop
  3. If his windows pc has a user name of 'User' and his Mac is set up us 'David' will this cause any problems
  4. Lastly i think he has some images that are stored on his iPod/iPhone can these be moved over as well


Hope this question makes sense.

Sorry his laptop is win 10 pro NOT win 7 U x64
