Transferring music from a computer to the iPhone is a very common activity for many iOS users, but exporting music from the iPhone back to the computer isn't. To help you do this, we collect 2 different ways - either using iTunes to export purchased music or using EaseUS MobiMover to transfer non-purchased music. Of course, you can also combine these two approaches to export all music from iPhone.

Way 1. How to Extract Music from iPhone to Computer via iTunes
Way 2. How to Extract Music from iPhone Without iTunes

Way 1. How to Extract Music from iPhone to Computer via iTunes

iTunes is a good choice to sync purchased music between iOS devices. But with iTunes, you can only extract purchased items from iPhone. If you want to transfer non-purchased music, just move to Way 2 to use EaseUS MobiMover to do it. To use iTunes to extract music files, you will need to prepare:

Step 1. Launch the latest version of iTunes on your computer.

Step 2. In most cases, iTunes automatically detects your device. If it does, then you will receive a message as shown below. If you receive this message, simply click the "Transfer" button. Otherwise, move to the next step.

Step 3. If iTunes doesn't detect your device, you can wait for your device to be recognized. Once iTunes recognizes your iPhone, head to its "File" menu, and then choose "Transfer Purchases from [your device name]."

Note: Sometimes, iTunes may ask you to authorize your computer to play these songs. To do this, you can go to the "Accounts" > "Authorization" > Choose to Authorize the computer.

Step 4. Once the process is complete, you can go to the "Recently Added" tab (on the left side of the iTunes window) to find the added music. 

Step 5. If you want to save the purchased song to your computer, you can click the "Download" button to save it.

Way 2. How to Extract Music from iPhone Without iTunes
