If you've just got a new Windows 10 PC, there will be quite many things to set up, for instance, music library, and that often takes ages to rebuild it from scratch. Rather than that, you may prefer to transfer songs on iPhone SE to the Windows 10 computer to enjoy the music more efficiently.

Unlike Android users who can directly migrate the music collection to Windows 10 desktop via USB cable, for iPhone users however, it turns out to be a hard task. Fortunately, several workarounds are available in this easy guide to save you from the pain of transferring music files from iPhone SE to Windows 10.
