How to transfer music from iPhone, iPad, iPod to Mac or Windows PC

It is likely that you accidentally lost your music collection on a PC or PC was lost or

damaged. At the same time, the only place where all the music is left is the iPhone, iPad or iPod. But since iOS is a closed system, there is no way to simply share tracks from the music gallery. Or, in the case of someone's Mac, you also won’t be able to sync using iTunes.

But don’t worry, there is an easy way to transfer all your music to your Mac. All you need to do is download a third-party application and spend a few minutes.



The note: When you connect your iOS device to a Mac or PC with which it was not previously synchronized, an iTunes window will pop up asking if you want to synchronize the device with this particular Mac. Do not do this. Otherwise, all information from your device will be erased. Also bear in mind that this will only work for music that you manually transferred to your iPhone earlier, with the exception of those tracks that were downloaded from Apple Music.

Step 3: Then click on Audio and select Music.



Step 4: Now, you will see all your tracks here. Select all the tracks you want to transfer.

Step 5: Then look at the toolbar at the top and you will see two buttons - Share on Mac (I, for example, use a Mac) and Share on iTunes. If you select 2nd, then add tracks to the list of your iTunes library.

Step 6: Submit to Mac will open the file selection. Select the destination folder and apply the action. At this point, you will see a pop-up window informing you that the application has been activated.
