Purchasing music and songs to a smartphone has been the best way to listen to music wherever you are. Some iOS users even spend hundreds of dollars on purchasing music from iTunes, and sync to their iPhone. Music files are so important that many iPhone users want to keep a backup. The very first choice should be syncing music to iCloud. However, as we all know, iCloud is limited to storage. If your music files are larger than 5 GB, you need to pay for upgrading to more storage space. Is there any free way to transfer purchased music from iPhone to the computer as a backup? I did some research, to find out there is a good solution.

There's some really good freeware for iPhone data transfer. What I like most is EaseUS MobiMover Free, the first free iPhone transfer software in the market. I use it on my daily laptop to sync music from iPhone to PC. The best part I like about MobiMover Free is that it is easy-to-use with a simple guide, and its user-friendly interface, so that anyone, even without tech skills, can use it easily. I have used it successfully to extract music from iPhone to PC for many times.

With MobiMover Free, you can select one, multiple, or all purchased music to sync to your computer with ease. Now let's see how to do it with MobiMover.
