Q: "I recently watched a movie on YouTube and was especially impressed by its background music. Now, I want to extract the music from the film to listen to that song on my portable devices. Is there any way to help me?"

A: Of course there is. There are many websites and apps that can help you convert YouTube videos to MP3 on your iPhone. But there is a copyright issue you need to consider before using them. Downloading copyrighted music videos is against YouTube's Terms of Service, which may cause copyright problems. So you'd better check whether the video is copyrighted before downloading or converting. 

 Now, you can follow these methods to download MP3 from YouTube to iPhone.

Part 1. Download YouTube MP3 with Video to MP3 Converter App

The easiest way to convert videos to MP3 should be using converter apps on iPhone. With such apps, you can convert videos into various audio formats, such as MP3, AAC, M4A, WAV, etc. But the sad thing is that these apps only support converting videos stored in your Album or cloud. Therefore, if you want to convert YouTube videos, you may need to download wanted YouTube videos to your iPhone or iPad in advance.

If you're looking for such apps, consider these options: Video to MP3 Converter, MyMP3, Audio Converter, MP3 Converter. Or you can also search for one by yourself.

Part 2. Download MP3 from YouTube to iPhone with a Video Converter

If you prefer a more convenient and flexible way to download MP3 from YouTube to iPhone, you can consider using this video downloader - EaseUS MobiMover. You can directly download one or several YouTube videos in MP3 format, as long as you change the export settings as JPG in advance. After converting, you can connect your iPhone or iPad to the computer and push the converted files to your device. 

Now you can follow these steps to download MP3 from YouTube to iPhone with EaseUS MobiMover.

Step 1. Launch EaseUS MobiMover, click "Video Downloader" on the left panel of the interface. Copy the URL of the video you want to download, paste it into the address bar.

Select the Video Downloader feature

Step 2. Then click the "Download" button.  In the popup window, you can choose to save the video in MP3. You can download the video in MP4 and WAV as well.

Choose to download the video as MP3

Step 3. Wait for EaseUS MobiMover to save the video to your computer in MP3. When the downloading process completes, you can access the downloaded MP3 file in the selected folder on your computer.

  • Convert videos to MP3 - allows you to convert video in any format to MP3 format
  • Backup & Restore tool - back up your iOS device to prevent data loss

Part 3. Download MP3 from YouTube to iPhone with Online Converters

By using some online conversion services, you can also extract MP3 from a YouTube video. These online services are free and don't require any installation. But they're not equipped to transfer files between an iPhone and a computer, so you may need a separate process to transfer converted files to your iPhone or iPad. Here we mainly introduce two typical online converters to you. 

1. YouTube to MP3

Our first recommendation is YouTube to MP3. It can process some simple conversions like converting MP3 to MP4 or vice versa. If you want more advanced tools, YouTube to MP3 can't serve your purpose. Besides, it can only convert videos up to a length of 90 minutes. If you wish to use it, navigate to: ytmp3.cc/downloader/

2. noTube

noTube is a free multi-format YouTube converter that lets you download videos in a simple and fast way. All you need is to copy and paste the URL of the video you wish to convert into the download box and then choose the MP3 or MP4 format as your wanted download format.

The Bottom Line

After reading this guide, we guess you've found your desired solution to download YouTube videos to MP3. As we introduced above, the desktop-based converter software is the most stable and reliable option to extract audio. But if you don't want to install the third-party program, you can try other solutions. That's all about our guide. We hope you can find what you need.
