Ipad/Iphone syncing?

Will take native if one exists, but I have a friend that had no backups of his system, and when he tried to update from win7 to win10 it killed his install completely.  He is interested in linux IF he can sync his Apple devices.  Any tips here?  I am an Android and linux guy to the bone and its been a good 5-8 years since I had OSX on my Macs (now run RHEL6).

If I am missing something regarding native, any tips would be great.  Wine related is fine too, as I can install linux on his system and build the crossover bottle for him (and force him to backup).

Thanks much!
Andrew.

The only thing I ever heard about was for media sync. In other words, forget about calendar, contacts, etc, unless you use gmail or something. At which point, your sync is over google's stuff, and the computer could use something like Thunderbird + lightning and some gmail sync extension. That's if an Iphone can be pointed at google's services. If so, problem solved without freakin' Itunes.

That being said, I wonder if you could pass on your question to Chris Fisher from Jupiter Broadcasting. I know the guy currently uses an Iphone (6s if I remember correctly). So pop on over to jupiterbroadcasting.com and perhaps drop him an email. Your question might make it on LinuxActionShow or Linux Unplugged. In any case, he might have a solution on hand.

Thanks for the heads up.  I guess a windows license is what we need to get then.

Another reason I dumped iOS when Android became usable back in the day.
