How to Transfer Music from iPhone to iTunes/PC

“I purchase a new laptop as the old one never turns on. I download and install iTunes on the new computer. It’s empty! I think I need to transfer my music from iPhone to it. But I don’t know how to do that. Many of the songs are ripped from CDs. I don’t want to rip them again with the new computer. How can I transfer music from iPhone to iTunes library? Thanks in advance!”

To protect the copyright, Apple does not allow users to transfer music from iPhone to iTunes or computer. The only one exception is the music is purchased from Apple. But iPhone users have many songs on their iPhone downloaded from internet, apps, ripped from CD and so on. When they switch to a new computer or empty iTunes, they need to transfer or sync the music from iPhone to iTunes and computer. Don’t worry, I will show you the easiest way to transfer music and songs from iPhone to iTunes/PC.

You need to use iOS Transfer to do that. It can connect your iPhone and transfer files between your iPhone and computer/iTunes easily.

Once the process bar reaches 100%, you can click “Open Folder” to check the music in your Tunes library or the folder you setup to save the music on your computer. To save the space in C Drive, many iTunes users change the default location when they install iTunes. In this case, you can’t transfer music from iPhone to iTunes directly. You need to first transfer music from iPhone and then import them from computer to iTunes.
