Copy iPhone music to Mac and music library
First let us get familiar with the music interface
If you just want to copy music from iPhone to a folder on your computer, but don’t want to add the copied songs to the music library, you can choose "Copy to Folder" 5, select a location to save the music files and complete the transfer.
However, if you want to add the copied songs to the local music library at the same time, please select "Send to iTunes". iCopyAssistant will copy the song files to the folder set in the settings, and then add the songs to the local music library (the copied files may be deleted, depending on whether the option "Copy files to Music folder when adding to library" in preferences of Music.app is enabled). If you want to add the copied songs to the specified playlist, please check the option "Add songs to playlist" in the "iTunes" section of preferences, and select or enter a new playlist name.
