    Specs:
    Late 2013 27" iMac, iPad 3, iPhone 6s+, iPhone 6+, 3 iPods, Sierra
    One way to do it is to use "iExplorer". Read the following article which instructs how to do the transfer and also gives the link to download iExplorer. LINK

    As near as I can tell, you have received some misinformation.

    I have an original iPhone (older than the 3G) that is limited to iOS 3.1.3, but I can still connect it to my latest computer running the latest software and work with it as before. This is not the same computer that was originally associated with this device, but it is the same iTunes account.

    You may also have some old backups of that phone on your current computer if you migrated your old data over. However, if you get a warning that iTunes will erase the phone, then you cannot use the method I describe and will need to do something like what Charlie suggested.
