It’ not surprised for iPhone user that it’s pretty difficult to copy things back to your computer, including backing up music from iPhone to computer. Because of Neither iTunes nor iCloud supports to backup iPhone songs.

Then, if you want to restore music from iCloud or iTunes, you will find that you can't do it as you don't have a backup file at all.

What’s worse,

Apple doesn’t allow users to transfer only songs from iOS device to iTunes. Either to sync your device with iTunes synchronously or nothing.
