FonePaw iOS Transfer is customized for all iPhone, iPad, iPod users to transfer data from iPhone to computer or the other way around. It's easy-to-use, user-friendly, fast, and reliable. With it, you can:
Transfer music from iDevice to iTunes/PC and vice versa. Whether the music is purchased from iTunes or imported from audio CD, you can use this program to transfer all of them to iTunes library or computer.
Export contacts to various formats. You can export selected or all contacts to CSV, vCard, Outlook, Hotmail, AOL, Gmail, and Yahoo from your iOS device.
Move photos between iPhone/iPad/iPod and computer. Vides shot by camera roll, panoramas, photo library, etc., are all available to export from the device to computer. And you can add any pictures back to the device with a few clicks.

Transfer data among iOS device. iTunes can’t directly transfer music, movies, contacts, photo library, books, and more from one iDevice to another iDevice, yet you can use FonePaw iOS Transfer to make it.
A simple way to manage music. If you have an iPod, you need this software. If you are like me and want a easier way to transfer music, this software will allow you to transfer those files into your iTunes or Mac hard drive. As far as I know, it can store all my iPod songs on my Mac. So if you get a new iPod or iPhone, with this software you can just save your files and re-sync then to your new device. Done! Nothing lost! I highly recommend this software!!!!!!!
So I followed my friend's suggestions. And I did some googling about FonePaw iOS Transfer. I followed a guide called "How to Transfer Music from iPhone to iTunes" on FonePaw and made some tests. I then sync music to iTunes library successfully. What is beyond my expectation is that it let me read and transfer my messages and photos to mac.
Caution! This program claims that you need a "network connectivity"in order to copy an MP3. Certainly I do have "connectivity" but what this program wants to do is to call home collecting some possibly unauthorized information. The program refuses to work without this undocumented event. If you value your privacy, I suggest to stay away from this!
