So, you’ve managed to collect quite a variety of music on your iPad. Some of it is purchased from iTunes, some of it is from that great new music download app you’ve been trying out, and some you’ve picked up from your old backups that still haven’t touched your iTunes account.
If you’re interested in moving all your music from your iPad to your iTunes, you’re probably going to run into some problems. To avoid illegal music sharing and copying, iTunes doesn’t allow transfer of non-iTunes purchased songs from iOS devices. However, there are some cases in which transferring your music to iTunes is completely justified and legal—in these cases these blockades are more a frustration than a protection.
To update your iTunes library with all your iPad’s music, you can go one of two ways. First, if you’re more tech-savvy, you can download some software which will ‘break’ these barriers inside the device itself, then navigate through the computer’s directory to manually copy and paste the iPad’s music files into iTunes. A particularly tricky method, it’s only advised for people who are willing to put in the time and effort to work through each step very carefully in order to avoid file corruption, data loss, or damage to your iPad. The second and easier way is to use a third-party software solution.
A handful of these solutions exist in the market, but only one is completely free and still offers the robust transfer and management features to make sure your entire library is moved safely and efficiently into iTunes. KiwiG PhonTunes is the ideal tool for this scenario. Below, we’ll take you through the process of moving your music with PhonTunes.
