Sorry, but your G4 PowerMac has been obsolete for years. It is 8+ years since Apple abandoned PPC chips in favour of Intel.
The latest iTunes cannot work with the almost equally old Leopard 10.5.8 and in any case requires Intel architecture.

At this point I recommend selling/returning your iPhone, and getting an older one that still has an older supported iOS.
Or buying a used or refurbished Mac that will support the iPhone. http://www.macsales.com/ and http://www.powermax.com/ are both good places to go, and the Apple Store has its own corner of older Macs to go to. Recognize PowerPC applications are not supported at higher than Mac OS X 10.6.8, and that Macs newer than July 20, 2011 can't run 10.6.8 without serious finagling. Migrating from old to new Mac also takes some work.
Recognize you don't have to buy the latest and greatest. Because if you do, you'll have to always try to make sure the software and hardware are running in sync. This is the down side of having integrated products. Eventually it does create older machines that can't run with newer devices.
