Transferring MP3 files from an iPhone to a computer is needed in many situations, such as:
- Free up more space for your iPhone or iPad
- Make a copy of important MP3 files
- Make a CD with MP3 files stored on your device
- Add an MP3 sound to a video
Whatever your purpose of doing so, you can do this by using iTunes or EaseUS MobiMover. In this guide, we will show you the steps in detail.
Download MP3 from iPhone to Computer via iTunes
iTunes should be your first option to transfer files from a computer to an iPhone or vice versa. But before you proceed, there is one thing that is worthy of attention - iTunes only supports transferring purchased songs, and the songs you transfer to the computer can't be opened.
To download MP3 files from iPhone to computer via iTunes:
Step 1. Download and launch the latest version of iTunes on your computer.
Step 2. Connect your iPhone to the computer.
Step 3. In the upper left corner of your iTunes window, click on "File" > "Device" > "Transfer Purchases from..."
Step 4. If required, you'll need to authorize your computer by going to the "Accounts" > "Authorization," and then choose to authorize the computer.
Step 5. Wait for the transfer process to complete.
Step 6. Then, click "Recently Added" from the left side of the iTunes window,
Step 7. Choose the purchased music that you want to download and click on the "Download" button.

As an app to connect iPhone to PC, EaseUS MobiMover works perfectly to transfer various iOS files, including contacts, messages, videos, photos, and more, from iPhone to a PC or vice versa.
