For iPhone users, there is a common problem that it's difficult to transfer iPhone music to computer. Even though iTunes allows users to transfer music purchased from iTunes to five authorized computers, it doesn't support the transfer of non-purchased music. Now in this guide, we will provide you with a free iPhone data transfer tool, EaseUSMobiMover Free, that can help you transfer all your music purchased from iTunes or downloaded from other sources from iPhone to computer without iTunes (Method 1). And, in case you need it, the way to copy music from iPhone to computer using iTunes (Method 2) is also detailed.

"without iTunes" means you don't need to operate in iTunes when import songs from iPhone to computer. However, to help your iPhone get identified, it's necessary for you to install iTunes on your computer.

Method 1. Transfer music from iPhone to computer without using iTunes

What can MobiMover do for you?
