Windows Phone 7 Connector, Microsoft’s application designed to sync files between your Mac and your Windows Phone 7 or Zune HD, has been updated to version 2.02, which adds (among other things) full sync and import support for Apple’s professional photography software, Aperture.

Using Windows Phone 7 Connector, you can send off any photos and videos you captured on your phone to your Mac. Music, movies, TV Shows and podcast sync also works, but only unprotected (non-DRM) files are supported. The tool can be used to update your Windows Phone 7 software as well.

Windows Phone 7 Connection 2.02 provides a bunch of “updates and changes” says Microsoft. One of those is “full sync and import support for Apple Aperture software.”

Windows Phone 7 users can now send their photos directly to Apple’s photography software for editing.

The updated file management app further adds drag and drop import support from Browse Device, ringtone transfer support (for phones running Windows Phone 7.5 or later), improved video conversion process with user configuration options, support for Windows Phone Marketplace, localization support for 13 additional languages, and improvements to backup and restore operations, configuration for podcast sync and photo import, iTunes import, and metadata.

A trio of fixes is listed as well:

• Added additional error codes and help references for device update
• Resolved connectivity issues with certain devices
• Resolved album art display issues for certain devices.


Windows Phone 7 Connector requires a Windows Phone 7 device (any carrier) or a Zune HD player and Mac OS 10.6.6 (Snow Leopard) or higher.

Customers experiencing connectivity problems between their Windows Phone and their Mac are offered this support document to troubleshoot their issues.
