I had a bunch of music that I had purchased elsewhere (not on iTunes) that were previously in my library. Now that I have a new computer and resigned up for iTunes, those songs have disappeared. I happen to have them saved on the old iPad that I no longer use. How can I transfer them to my library?

As is known to all, iPad has many useful functions like listening to music, playing mobile games or watching videos on a bigger screen than iPhone, so if you've downloaded so many songs, games or videos on your iPad, the more you download, the less storage space will be remained, therefore, you need to free up storage space on your iPad, but how? In this post, we'd like to introduce you two free methods, let's take a look at how it works.
