The iTunes Store offers a variety of legal music of very good quality. Many iPhone users, therefore, tend to buy songs there. If you want to save a little space on your phone, you can transfer purchased songs to your Mac. Just follow these steps:

Step 1: Run iTunes on your Mac. If necessary, download the latest version of the program first.

Step 2: Connect your iPhone to your Mac via USB cable. A menu bar appears on the computer screen. Under the "Store" tab, click on "Authorize this computer" and enter your Apple ID and password to add this device to your Apple account.

Step 3: Then go to File > Devices > Transfer Purchases from iPhone and wait until the process is complete.

This makes it easy to transfer purchased songs from iTunes to your iTunes library on your Mac. Note, however, that this is only possible for music purchased from the iTunes Store.
