    • Dear Bálint, thank you for using AirMore! Due to Apple's copyright policy, our app cannot transfer apple music. So we do not show them on the AirMore Web. If you want to transfer apple music, please use ApowerManager, you can check its information here: https://www.apowersoft.com/phone-manager. It can transfer all the songs, including other files from iOS/Android to the computer and vice versa. Thank you for your understanding! If you have any further questions, please be free to reach out!
