How to Transfer iTunes Backup to SD card on Samsung Galaxy S7

if you are the one who are tired of the iOS devices and want to change a new taste to Samsung Galaxy S7 (edge), you must wonder how to transfer data from iTunes to Samsung Galaxy S7 since there are many important contacts, songs, pictures, videos, text messages backup files which still stored on the iTunes. What's more, the Galaxy S7(Edge) has only 4GB for internal storage, which is obviously not big enought for your iTunes music library with hundreds tracks. Hence, here we are going to shows your how to transfer iTunes backup files, including iTunes music library, contacts, photos, etc, to SD card on Samsung Galaxy S7 (edge).
