For more information and detailed steps, please see below.
Selecting and copying your music
TouchCopy can copy all your iPod, iPad and iPhone songs and videos stored in your device's Music library. All music formats that your device is capable of playing, including MP3, AAC, WAV, WMV and MP4 are supported. TouchCopy does not perform any file conversion on your songs or videos. Note that TouchCopy will copy songs that are stored locally on your device. If your music is stored on iCloud, please first download it to your device before copying.
Copy all tracks: To quickly copy all your songs on your device, click the Copy to PC or Copy to Mac button in TouchCopy without selecting any music. TouchCopy for PC users can also copy all their songs, video and playlists, by using the Backup All button in TouchCopy.
Copy selected tracks: You can also copy selections of music. Select the audio or video you wish to copy by Shift-clicking multiple items, or browse and search your iPod or iOS device content using TouchCopy.
Once you have selected the items you wish to copy, press the "Copy to PC" or "Copy to Mac" button in the TouchCopy Control Bar to copy music from your device to your computer.
By default, TouchCopy will save your music in artist / album subfolders and name the music files as: <track number> - <track title>.
You can change the default save location, directory structure and file name format using TouchCopy options.
As each track is copied onto your hard drive an icon next to that track indicates whether the copy was successful or not. The icons used are for success and for failure.
As a track is successfully copied, TouchCopy will mark the track on your device as copied. Whenever you connect your device to TouchCopy - TouchCopy will detect the music you have previously successfully copied. See "Copy History" for more information.
Successfully copied tracks will also show in the "Items Copied" report. See Reports for further details.
Copying Playlists to your computer hard drive
To copy a playlist to your computer hard drive select a playlist and click on "Copy to PC" or the "Copy to Mac" button.
Music in the playlists will be saved to your computer in the folders and file name format you have specified in Options/Preferences.
For Playlists, TouchCopy also produces an XML file named after the Playlist you are copying. This XML file contains information about the tracks and track order of the Playlist. The XML file can be used to import the playlist into iTunes or the Music app.
If copying songs displayed as a result of an TouchCopy search, you have the option to save the songs as a playlist with the same name of the search text. To do so, check the box "Save Music search result as a playlist" in TouchCopy Options > Music (PC only).
Adding copied Music or Playlists into iTunes or Music app
You can add the music you just copied into your music library. In iTunes (or the Music app on macOS Catalina or higher), select File->Add folder To Library... from the menu. Select the folder you just saved your music to and click OK.
In a similar way you can add playlists to your music library too. In iTunes/Music, select File -> Library->Import Playlist... Select the XML file saved by TouchCopy with the same name as the playlist you require and click Open.
As the Podcast format continues to grow in popularity, you may find yourself with many shows and episodes saved on your iPhone. To access these shows, click the "Podcasts" header in TouchCopy's Music section.
Select the Podcast episodes you wish to copy to your computer, then click "Copy to PC".
Since Podcast episodes can be large files, once stored safely on your computer, you may want to consider deleting the podcast episodes from your iPhone to create more space!
