How to Transfer Purchased Items from iPhone to iTunes


August 29, 2016 09:00 / Posted by Boey Wong

I own an iPhone 6 and use it to enjoy music for long time. So there are purchased items on the iPhone that I want to transfer to iTunes. I would not have to ask this simple question if the iTunes support pages were not updated. But now I don’t know how to transfer purchased items to iTunes Library on a newer version of iTunes. please can anyone tell me how to do it? Thanks!

iTunes is an awesome application for downloading and purchasing items, such as songs, movies, podcasts, audio books, and so on which brings much fun to users daily life. Users can download and purchase contents directly from iTunes Store on their Apple devices. But these contents may not be transferred automatically to the iTunes Library on your computer. To keep the purchased items safe, you probably want to back them up to iTunes. Regarding this, I would like to offer two ways to transfer purchases from iPhone to iTunes for the purpose of backing up. Now let’s begin.

Transfer Purchases to iTunes

Way 1: How to Transfer Purchases from iPhone to iTunes

Transferring purchases from iPhone to iTunes is quite simple. You can use iTunes to transfer them on your comptuer. This method works only for contents purchased from the iTunes Store. Any other items that you import from CD or receive from other sources can’t be transferred from your device to the iTunes Library. If you have items from other resources, please move to next method.

Connect your iPhone to the computer and open iTunes if it doesn’t open automatically. Make sure that your iTunes is running th latest version and you are logged into your account.

You will see your iPhone’s icon appearing in the upper-left corner of iTunes after iTunes recognizes your device.

From the memu bar at the top of your computer screen or at the top of the iTunes window, select FileDevicesTransfer Purchases from “device’s name”.
