Each fits different needs. Read on to get the details.

"How do I transfer non-purchased music from my iPhone to my computer?"

If you want to transfer all music, including the purchased songs and the non-purchased ones, from your iPhone to PC or Mac, using iPhone data transfer software like EaseUS MobiMover will fulfill your needs perfectly. With EaseUS MobiMover, you can also put music on iPhone from computer or transfer music from one iPhone to another.

Method 2. How to Transfer Music from iPhone to PC with iTunes

Applies To: Purchased Music

As you can add music from iTunes to iPhone, you can also transfer music from your iPhone to computer using iTunes. However, unlike EaseUS MobiMover that will help you copy all songs from your iPhone to PC/Mac, iTunes only allows you to transfer purchased items from iPhone to computer. Thus, using iTunes is advisable only when you attempt to copy purchased songs from your iPhone to PC or Mac.

To transfer purchased music from iPhone to computer:

Step 1. Download and install the latest version of iTunes on your PC. Afterward, connect your iPhone to your computer.

Step 2. Unlock your iOS device, trust the computer, and then enter your iPhone passcode as required.

Step 3. In iTunes, go to "File" > "Devices" > "Transfer Purchases from [your iPhone name]".

Step 4. When the transfer process is done, your iPhone music will appear in the iTunes Library.

If you want to download the songs to your computer, find and click the song, then click the download button to save it to your computer.

You should be clear that iTunes won't help to transfer non-purchased songs or music downloaded from other sources. If you also want to import these items, try EaseUS MobiMover instead.

Applies To: Purchased Music

If the purchased songs are what you want to copy from iPhone to PC, you can directly re-download the purchased music in iTunes.

Step 1. Open iTunes and go to "Account" from the menu bar.

Step 2. Choose "Sign In" and enter your Apple ID that you used to buy the songs.

Step 3. Go to "Account" > "Purchased" > "Music".

Step 4. Switch to the "Not in My Library" tab and you will see the purchased items.

Method 4. How to Transfer Music from iPhone to Computer with Cloud Services

Applies To: Non-Purchased Songs

The last but not least way to transfer your iPhone music to PC or Mac is to use cloud services. Cloud storage services enable you to share files across your devices that use the same account. Whether you want to transfer music from iPhone to computer or from computer to iPhone, such services will help.

Common utilities like Dropbox, Google Play Music, and Amazon Music can all copy songs from your iPhone to PC or Mac. Let's take Dropbox as an example.

To transfer music from iPhone to PC:

Step 1. Download and install Dropbox on both your iOS device and the computer. (You can install the Dropbox app on your iOS device only. On the PC or Mac, you can visit dropbox.com instead.)

Step 2. Sign in to Dropbox on your devices with the same account.

Step 3. Upload the songs you want to transfer from your iPhone to Dropbox.

Step 4. When it has done, you can access and download the music from Dropbox to your computer. By doing so, you can transfer music from your iPhone to PC or Mac.
