If you’re an iPhone owner, you’ve probably noticed that there’s no easy way to transfer music from your iPhone to your iTunes library.

Fortunately, there is a way to transfer music from your iPhone to iTunes, and it’s completely free. We’ll show you how in this article.
Select “Manually manage music and videos”
If you want to manage your music and videos manually, you can select the “Manually manage music and videos” option. This will allow you to add songs and videos to your iTunes library without having to use the auto-sync feature.
Once you’ve made your selections, click the Apply button in the lower-right corner of the window. Your chosen options will be applied to all of the selected tracks, and you can then click the Sync button to transfer the music from your iPhone to iTunes.
Drag and drop music files into your device’s music library
One of the most common ways to transfer music from your iPhone to your computer is to use a USB cable. Simply connect your device to your computer with a USB cable and open iTunes. Then, select your device in iTunes and click “File > Devices > Transfer Purchases from [device name].” This will copy any music files that you’ve purchased from the iTunes Store onto your computer.
If you want to transfer music that you’ve downloaded from other sources, you can do so by dragging and dropping the files into your device’s music library. To do this, open iTunes and connect your device to your computer. Then, select your device in iTunes and click “Music.” From there, you can browse through your music library and drag and drop any files that you want to transfer onto your device.
Eject your device from iTunes
If you want to ensure that all of your music transfers over to iTunes, you’ll need to eject your device from iTunes first. To do this, simply click on the little eject button next to your device’s name in the left-hand sidebar.
