How to Transfer Music from Computer to iPhone WITH iTunes
iTunes is an official Apple app to transfer files to your iOS devices, but it’s not many people’s favorite. Why, you ask? Because iTunes transfers files to iOS devices by syncing them with your PC, meaning that you will lose any and all files on your iOS device that do not coexist on iTunes at that time, and they will be synced with the items currently on your iTunes app. So there is a high chance that you will end up losing data. This is why many people opt for iTunes alternative apps.
But if you are looking for a way to transfer music to your iPhone using iTunes, follow the step-by-step guide below:
Step 1: Plug in your iPhone to your PC via a cord. The iTunes app will automatically pop open.
Step 2: Allow your iPhone to trust the PC after unlocking your iPhone.
Step 3: Click on the device icon and click on “Music”
Step 4: Select “Sync Music” and then select “Remove and Sync”
Step 5: Select to transfer your “Entire Music Library” (you can also select individual tracks by playlists, artists, albums and genres).
Step 6: Once you have selected your entire music library OR specific songs, click on “Apply” and then “Sync”.
And within a few minutes, your selected music will be added to your iPhone, once the sync has been finished. You can find it in your Music Library.
But if you want to avoid losing your data via iTunes during a sync, you can always opt for an iTunes alternative. Continue reading to know how you can add music to iPhone without iTunes.
