Free Way to Copy Songs from iPhone to PC

iPhone brings delightful sounds to our life. You can keep your favorite music files into your pocket and enjoy them while you are running or waiting for somebody, almost anytime you need some music. However, with the growing number of the purchased and downloaded songs on your iOS device, the available storage space will be quickly eaten up. It will be much better if you can copy songs from your iPhone to PC.

There are hundreds of articles about how to transfer music from PC to iOS device. But now we are going to discuss how to copy music from iPhone to Windows computer in details. Whether you rely on a file transfer tool or not, you will always find a proper way to make it.


Transfer Music from iOS Device to Windows PC via iTunes

Offered by Apple, iTunes is a media library, player and iOS device management application. By using iTunes, you can manage the content on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod by manually syncing specific items between your iPhone and computer.

So far, iTunes only allows you to transfer the purchased music files (those downloaded music files on your iPhone are untransferable) to PC. Here is how can you transfer your purchased music from iOS device to a computer?

Step 1: Connect your iPhone to computer

Step 2: Open iTunes. Make sure that you have the latest version

Step 3: Click “File” in the upper-left side of the iTunes window

Step 4: Select “Devices” on the File drop-down menu

Step 5: Click “Transfer Purchases from [Name]” to move the purchased iPhone music to computer


If you use iTunes to copy music from iPhone to PC, here are 2 drawbacks:

  • you can only transfer the purchased music to PC

  • there is no selection, you have to transfer ALL purchased music to PC

Besides, you could confront with unknown sync error or others when using iTunes to copy songs from iPhone to PC. That’s why many users don’t like iTunes to manage their iOS devices or transfer files. Is there any other method to transfer music from iPhone to computer more easily and quickly?
