Transfer Music From Your iPhone Storage To iTunes With 2 Free Methods.

Transfer music from iPhone to iTunes

One of the most frequently asked questions from iPhone users is “how to transfer music from iPhone to iTunes for free.” This is because losing your music library on iTunes for an unknown reason is not rare. And regardless of what caused the erasing of the iTunes library, the fact is that you cannot recover the lost songs except the songs that were already in your iPhone. In the event that you lose your music in your iTunes library, follow these steps to transfer music from your iPhone storage to iTunes, that is if the songs are still available in the device storage.

Before going full swing on how to do this, you need to know that the ‘transfer purchase’ option (File > Device > Transfer Purchase) should not be mistaken as a means where you transfer your music library on your iPhone. The ‘transfer purchase’ only enables the transfer of music, movies, and other media files which were purchased from the Apple Store and as a result causes the non-purchased files to get erased during the transfer. So, iPhone users should not use this option if the files they’ll be transferring include non-purchased items. Instead of using the transfer purchase option, they should use another software.

For transferring music from iPhone to iTunes, you’ll need third-party transfer software. There are several software programs you can use in carrying out this activity. In this article, I would share two of these software programs and how you can use them for free to transfer music from iPhone to iTunes. They are:

1. Appandora iPhone to iTunes Music Transfer

2. iExplorer

1. Using Appandora iPhone to iTunes Music Transfer

Below is a step-by-step guide on how to music from iPhone to iTunes by using this free software.

Step 1: Download and install the Appandora iPhone to iTunes Music Transfer software on your computer.

Step 3: After you have installed the Appandora iPhone to iTunes Music Transfer, connect your iPhone to your computer via your USB cable.

Step 6: After exporting the music files to your computer, open iTunes and sync the music files you just exported from your computer to your iTunes library.

2. Transfer Music From iPhone Using iExplorer

Here are the steps on how to transfer music from iPhone to iTunes using the iExplorer software

Step 1: Download the iExplorer software and install it on your computer. If you download the free application, you should expect limitations on the activities. That is, if you decide to download it, you would be limited to only the transfer of 10 songs.

Step 2: Turn off the automatic syncing settings on your iTunes. To turn off this setting, go to edit > preference > devices > prevent IOS from syncing automatically. Select OK and exit.
