    What I’ve done is when you sync the iPhone to iTunes and it says something like “Josh’s iPhone”, right click on the name and click transfer purchases. Then iTunes will do everything for you.

    iTunes doesn’t allow me to transfer and put my music from my iPhone to my computer and iTunes. It takes me a bit of an effort to put music from my iPhone to iTunes.

    I am lucky that you share the post of how to transfer and put songs from iPhone to iTunes. Thank you!

    I have had an iPhone for 1 1/2 years, otherwise I have used pc for 30 years. I find it completely ridiculous that iPhone cannot transfer files back to a computer without any auxillary programs. If the apps I need (some music stuff) were published for a smartphone working Windows like I would not use anything Apple at all.

    Jerome April 30th, 2012 Permalink

    That’s what apple do!
    Probably they are thinking of protect copyright or earn more money from their iTunes.
    They worried that you will transfer these music to other one’s iPhone. XD
