iTunes is good and all, but why limit yourself to only one solution to manage music on your iPhone? Especially, since iTunes can’t copy music from iPhone to computer.
Luckily, CopyTrans knows just the way to transfer music from iPhone to computer in a few clicks, including:
- music files (.mp3, m4a, m4r, aac),
- artist and album information,
How to transfer music from iPhone to computer
To download music from iPhone to computer, you’ll need to follow the detailed guide below. The method works for all Apple devices: iPhones, iPods, and iPads.
Download and install CopyTrans from the following page. Refer to the Installation guide if necessary.
Run CopyTrans and connect your iDevice. Wait until your music library is loaded.
In the top-left corner, switch the setting to “Manual Backup”.
Select the tracks you wish to transfer from iPhone to your PC. You can transfer playlists, individual songs, or the entire music library.
Now, to copy music from iPhone to a folder on your computer, click on the Folder button and select a destination on your PC.
If you are ready to put music from iPhone to computer, hit “Start Backup”.
СopyTrans compares the size of your backup with the free space available in the selected destination to make sure the transfer goes smoothly.
Backup status, remaining time and size of processed files are shown on the progress bar during the transfer.
The job is done! Your iPhone music has been safely transferred to the computer.
Note: CopyTrans provides 100% free from duplicates backup, so if you have previously copied any of your tracks to your destination folder, they won’t be imported.
BONUS: Customize your backup structure
By default we use iTunes backup structure: main Music folder > Album > Artist > songs. If you don’t like the default settings, you can easily change your backup structure by clicking on the Customize button.
For example, leave both Music subfolders empty as it is shown on the following screenshot. This will store all your music files in one folder. Click OK to start the transfer.
NOTE: CopyTrans will remember your preferences for the next backup.
