Want to transfer songs from iPhone to computer but do not know how? This guide will tell you how to transfer music from iPhone to computer with ease.
For most of the iPhone users, the main reason why they choose the iPhone is because of its system, which is easy and safe. While on the other side, this unique system also troubled users a lot. For example, Apple does not give much authority to users to access iPhone content. Therefore, when iPhone users want to transfer photos, music, contacts, and other content from their iPhone to computer, that would be hard as hell.
Actually, Apple itself has made efforts to solve this problem. They have developed iTunes for users to manage media files, developed iCloud for users to store content in the cloud, and developed AirDrop for users to transfer content between iPhone and iPhone, as well as Mac.
Since iTunes only supports transferring purchased music and AirDrop only applies to iPhone and Mac. These are still not helpful when we want to transfer non-purchased music to the computer or when we want to transfer music from iPhone to a Windows PC.
Here in this article, we will focus on music transferring, and tell you how to transfer music from iPhone to the computer. Whether you are using a PC or a Mac, this post will help you.
First of all, we’d like to introduce the official recommended method – to transfer music from iPhone to computer with iTunes. Before start, we need to mention that this method could only transfer purchased music to your iTunes. And considering iTunes errors happen all the time, it would be better for you to make a backup first.
Step 1. Download and install the latest version of iTunes on your computer > Connect your iPhone to your computer.
Step 2. Click File on the upper left corner of iTunes window > Devices > Transfer Purchases from “your iPhone name”.
Step 3. Wait for the purchased music to finish transferring > Click Recently Added on the left side of the iTunes window > Choose the purchased music that you want to save > Click on the Download button. If you don’t see the Download button, the music is already on your computer.
