Computer's hard drives are a good place to back up large amounts of data on smartphones. If you've been a long time user of an iPhone 11 Pro, there's a good chance that the dozens of gigs of songs are tied up inside the device memory, and you will want to copy entire music library to a Windows 7 computer. This may include the music purchased from iTunes Store app or downloaded via Apple Music if you're a subscriber, the songs you've ripped from CDs, and the playlists.

iTunes is dead on macOS with the arrival of Catalina, but it's still alive and well in Windows. The Sync feature, however, makes it not that simple to transfer music from iPhone 11 Pro (Max) back to Windows 7 hard drive due to its one-way synchronization—except those purchased songs. Naturally, there's a workaround. Third-party tools are the new norms for getting non-purchased music to the computer, and iPhone Data Transfer is a standalone application to have at your disposal.
