M4V is video container format developed by Apple typically used in iTunes to encode video files such as TV episodes, movies, and music videos, while iTunes is the exact tool for syncing media files to all Apple devices such as iPhone 5s, iPad Air, etc. Except M4V, iTunes also accepts some other video formats such as .mp4 and .mov. However, the .swf format -- the most widely used format for displaying "animated" vector graphics on the Web -- is not included in the acceptable format list. That means, if you want to import .swf to iTunes for playback in iTunes, iPhone 5s or iPad Mini 2, you have no other options but to convert SWF to M4V on Mac.
