How to Get Music off iPhone or iPod

By Emily Watson, Monday, June 20, 2016

As Apple renews its products every year, it is natural for iOS users to purchase new iOS devices every now and then. When you get a new iPhone or iPod, you may want to get files off your old devices, for example, get your music off your old iPhone or iPod.

When comes to getting music off iPhone or iPod, iTunes is the first option that iOS users will think of. However, for the sake of copy protection, music syncing via iTunes tends to be a one-way process. Syncing songs from iOS devices to iTunes is difficult, especially in the case of getting off music that isn't purchased from iTunes Store. To tackle the problem, you need a professional program to help you out. I strongly recommend the FonePaw iOS Transfer, a file transfer assistant that is tailored to iOS users.

This program enables you to transfer music, videos, playlists, photos, contacts, SMS, books from iPhone, iPad and iPod to computer/iTunes/device with ease. With this easy-to-use program, you are going to get music off iPhone or iPod in simple clicks.

Download the free trial version of the program to give it a try.
