I currently sync my iPhone and iPad to my iMac. For reasons I won't go into here, I would like to simply transfer by syncing to my MacBook Pro. I currently sync and backup via the iCloud.


I have looked through various discussion groups and haven't come across this simple request. Is there some easy way to transfer my iPhone and iPod to be recognized by my MacBook Pro and then sort of "reverse/backdoor' sync them?


Everything currently is working perfectly. I do not wish to mess anything up with my iPhone or iPad. One obvious concern to me is the fact that iTunes in iCloud shows all my music, playlists, etc.; however, there are no apps, ring tones, or books showing up in iTunes on my MacBook Pro. I guess in a perfect world if I could do what I want to the "reverse" sync would just put them there.


Please be kind to me and let me know of a simple way to accomplish this simple task.
