“I have bought a new Mac recently and My old MacBook Pro stopped working last week. I lost many tracks on Mac, but musics are still on my iPhone. Now I want to transfer all my musics from my iPhone to my Mac. Is there any way I could do to simply transfer my iPhone music to Mac or iTunes library? Grateful for helpful responses.”-- JayBeast
