How to transfer music from an iPhone to a Mac

An iPhone is a mobile phone manufactured by Apple that also plays music and videos. You can also use your iPhone to run games and other applications. It has a touch screen, and connects to the Internet through cellular data networks and Wi-Fi, which allows you to access Apple’s iTunes Store and download music directly to it. If you want to listen to this music purchased on your Mac, you can easily transfer it through iTunes, a free application that Apple installs on all Macs. You can use iTunes to listen to music and manage your iPhone.

Step 1

Click on the “iTunes” icon in the Dock (shortcut bar) on your Mac to start the application.

Step 2

Connect your iPhone to a USB port on your Mac with the USB cable that comes with it. Your iPhone will appear as an icon in the left part of the “iTunes” window.

Step 3

Click on “File” and then on “Transfer purchases from (name of your iPhone).” All the music you have downloaded from the iTunes Store will be copied directly from your iPhone to your Mac. Click on “Bought in (name of iPhone)” on the left side of the iTunes window to see the music you are transferring.

Step 4

Disconnect your iPhone when the music transfer is complete.
