Transferring music from the iPhone to the computer is the best way to avoid the loss of music and free up more space for your device. Also, it is a good option for video-makers to transfer their favorite iPhone music to the computer as audio material. Regardless of the reasons why you want to transfer music to computer, there are two options available for this purpose. Option 1 is to use a free third-party transfer tool, which gives you a handy, easy, and convenient way to transfer all music from the iPhone to the computer without a hassle. Option 2 is to use iTunes, which gives you a tedious and time-consuming way to transfer only purchased music from the iPhone to the computer. Depending on your needs, you can choose your desired method to get the job done. 

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

Whether you want to transfer purchased music or non-purchased music from iPhone to computer, EaseUS MobiMover can help you do it. Not only that, with EaseUS MobiMover installed on your computer, you can:

  • Transfer data between two iOS devices (iPhone/iPad in iOS 8 and later) or between an iOS device and a computer (Mac or PC).
  • Whether you want to transfer music from iPhone to computer, put music to iPhone from computer, or copy songs from one iPhone to another, you can use EaseUS MobiMover to do it.
  • Manage content on your iOS device by deleting, editing, adding items from the computer.
  • Download videos from any websites using the URL to your computer or iPhone/iPad.

In addition to music, other file types, including ringtones, voice memos, voicemails, videos, photos, contacts, messages, and more, are also transferrable using EaseUS MobiMover.
