You may have stored many of your favorite songs on your iPhone so that you can listen to the music on the go. Music files are so important that many iPhone users want to keep a backup on PC. Unfortunately, transferring music from your iPhone to your computer is not a simple, straightforward process. It can be pretty difficult to copy anything (or everything) back to your computer without a lot of trouble and sacrifice. This tutorial is designed to show you the free and simple ways to backup songs from iPhone to PC with or without iTunes.

Part 1 Backup Purchased iPhone Songs to PC with iTunes

iTunes allows you to transfer iPhone songs to PC, but only when the music was purchased from the iTunes Store. This method will not work if your iPhone music comes from another source, such as a CD, website, or other online stores.

Step 1: Open iTunes. Find the iTunes icon on the desktop, and then double-click to open the program.

Step 2: Navigate to the Store menu. From the Store menu, select the Authorize This Computer option.

Step 3: Enter your log-in information. Fill in your Apple ID and password when asked. Click on the Authorize button in the dialog box to complete the authorization process.

Step 4: Connect your iPhone to your computer with a USB cable.

Step 5: Transfer your purchased songs. If an alert pops up asking you whether you want to "Erase and Sync" or "Transfer Purchases," click on the Transfer Purchases option to transfer your iPhone music to your computer. If you click on Erase and Sync, any content on your iPhone will be deleted.
