Detailed Steps

Firstly, we need to copy your music to your computer, then from your computer, we can copy the music onto your new Android device.

Launch TouchCopy on your computer and connect your iPhone using your USB cable.

Once your device is connected, TouchCopy will load all of your iPhone's data. This may take some time if this is the first time using the device with TouchCopy.

By default, you will already be looking at the Music tab on TouchCopy. If you would like to copy all songs from your iPhone, hit "Copy to iTunes". If you only want to copy certain tracks, select the tracks you would like to copy first, then click "Copy to iTunes".
