There are times when you watch a YouTube movie and surprisingly find its background music is so impressive that you want to extract and download it to your iPhone or iPad for offline listening.

Yes, there is. You can do this with some Youtube to MP3 converters & downloaders, just as shown below.

Part 1. Convert YouTube to MP3 on iPhone with a YouTube Video Converter

Our first recommendation for the converter program is this video downloader - EaseUS MobiMover. It is a computer-based program that lets you do some iPhone data management or conversion jobs. With its video downloader, you can download videos from any website in MP3 format. Unlike online converters that require a separate procedure to push converted files to your iPhone or iPad, EaseUS MobiMover can directly send them to your device after converting.

You can still use it to transfer data from an iPhone to a computer or vice versa, back up your iPhone, convert HEIC to JPG, convert any videos to MP3, etc. For more functions, you can download it to explore.

Part 2. Convert YouTube to MP3 with Online YouTube to  Video Converters

If you prefer to convert YouTube videos to MP3 online, you can try some online converters. These converters don't need you to install any apps. All you need is a working internet connection with good speed. The best part of such converters is that they are compatible with almost all operating systems, including iOS, Android, macOS, and Windows. 

But on the other hand, you have to tolerant the interruption of ads and the damage caused by viruses brought by these websites. If you're ready to use such tools, here are some recommendations. 

1. YouTubetoMP3 Converter

YouTubetoMP3 Converter is an easy-to-use Youtube video converter that lets you convert YouTube to MP3 by using a URL. All you need is to copy and paste the link of the YouTube video you wish to convert to the download box and then choose your wanted export format (mp3). Finally, click on the "Convert" button to start the conversion process.

2. YTMP3

By using YTMP3, you can easily download and convert your wanted YouTube videos in MP4 or MP3 format. It can work seamlessly for computers, tablets, and mobile devices. There are no ads and no need for the installation of any software. All you need is a stable internet connection. But there is a shortcoming of this tool - it can only convert videos up to a length of 90 minutes. If you don't mind this, you can give it a try.

3. GO-MP3

GO-MP3 is another online converter that allows you to download YouTube videos to MP3 for free. Actually, it works similar to other online converters, and there is nothing special about it, so that we won't go into any details.

YTHUB.CC works differently from the other three online converters introduced above. It doesn't require you to open another tab and copy the URL. Instead, you can directly search for your wanted videos by inputting the keywords. Another advantage of this tool is that it allows you to download YouTube playlists in MP3. If you need to download playlists, don't miss this tool.

Part 3. Convert YouTube to MP3 with Converter Apps for iPhone

While if you want to extract audio from YouTube videos with your iPhone, you can try some free converter apps. It can be easy to find MP3 converters from the internet or App Store, but this is not the case in YouTube to MP3 converters since the App Store offers very few options for this purpose. This is mainly because any attempts to download videos, movies or other copyrighted content on YouTube are breaking the law. It may put you and app developers at risk of facing a criminal trial. 

But in fact, the chance of facing a copyright problem, especially as an individual, is very slim, so you can try one or two apps before they are removed from App Store.

Since these kinds of apps often disappear, we won't list recommendations. You can try YouTube++, a modified YouTube app. But before getting started with this app, you need to jailbreak your iPhone. If this is not what you want, you can try other solutions instead.

Bottom Line

As you can see, you can convert YouTube to MP3 in many different ways. Different ways have different features of conversion. The desktop-based converter - EaseUS MobiMover is reliable, safe, and quick. It can fulfill most needs for video conversion. At the same time, the online converters may offer a limited number of videos for conversion. And the converter app is the most convenient option, but it often works unstably and requires you to subscribe to its premium version to access its advanced features.
