There are a number of reasons you might want to transfer music from one iPhone to another. Maybe you just got a new iPhone and want to move your music collection over, or maybe you want to share some songs with a friend. Whatever the reason, there are a few different ways to do it.
One way to transfer music from one iPhone to another is by using iCloud. iCloud is Apple’s online storage service, and it can be used to sync music between two iPhones. To do this, you’ll need to have iCloud set up on both iPhones, and you’ll need to be connected to a Wi-Fi network. Once you have everything set up, open the Settings app on your first iPhone and tap “iCloud.” Then tap “Music” and make sure the “iCloud Music Library” switch is turned on. Now open the Music app on your first iPhone and select the songs you want to transfer. Tap the Share icon (it looks like a square with an arrow coming out of it) and then tap “Add To My Music.” The selected songs will now be added to your iCloud Music Library.
On your second iPhone, open the Settings app and tap “iCloud.” Tap “Music” and make sure the “iCloud Music Library” switch is turned on. Now open the Music app on your second iPhone and tap the “For You” tab at the bottom of the screen. You should see all of the songs that you added to your iCloud Music Library on your first iPhone. Tap the download icon (it looks like a cloud with a down arrow) next to each song you want to download, and the song will be downloaded onto your second iPhone.
Another way to transfer music from one iPhone to another is by using iTunes. iTunes is Apple’s media management software, and it can be used to transfer music between two iPhones. To do this, connect both iPhones to your computer using their USB cables, open iTunes, and click on the device icons for each iPhone in iTunes’ left sidebar. Then click on the “Music” tab for each device in iTunes’ main window. Make sure that the “Sync Music” option is checked for both devices, and then click the “Apply” or “Sync” button in iTunes’ bottom-right corner. Your music will now be transferred from one iPhone to another!
What you need
Before you begin, make sure that both of your devices have the latest version of iOS, and that they’re signed in to iCloud with the same Apple ID. You also need to make sure that each device has enough available space to store the files you want to transfer.
If you’re using iOS 11 or later, you can use AirDrop to share files between iPhones, iPads, and Macs. If you’re using an iPhone 6 or later,* you can use Universal Clipboard to copy and paste between your devices. And if you’re using an iPhone 5 or earlier,* iBooks is the best way to transfer PDFs and books from one iPhone to another.
* Some features might not be available in all countries or regions.
Set up iCloud
If you want to transfer music from one iPhone to another without a computer, you can do so using iCloud. To set this up, you’ll need to enable iCloud Music Library on both devices. Once this is done, any music that you add to your library will be available on both devices.
Turn on iCloud Music Library
Open Settings on your old iPhone.
Tap the switch next to iCloud Music Library to turn it on .
A message will pop up asking if you want to keep music stored on your iPhone. Choose Keep Music to keep all of your music and playlists, or choose Delete & Replace to delete everything on your iPhone and replace it with what’s in iCloud.
Connect both iPhones to the same Wi-Fi network
Open the Settings app on both of your iPhones. Tap Wi-Fi, then make sure both iPhones are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
On your old iPhone, open the Settings app and tap the item at the top of the screen. Tap General > iPhone Storage > Backup. If you’re using iOS 10.2 or earlier, go to Settings > iCloud > Backup.
On your new iPhone, open the Settings app and tap General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings. When asked, enter your passcode. This will delete all of the data on your new iPhone, so make sure to back it up first!
Once your new iPhone has been reset, follow the prompts until you get to the “Apps & Data” screen. Tap Restore from iCloud Backup, then sign in with your Apple ID if prompted. Choose the most recent backup from your old iPhone, then wait for it to restore.
On your old iPhone, open the Music app and go to the Library tab
On your old iPhone, open the Music app and go to the Library tab. Tap Songs, then select the song or album you want to transfer. If you want to transfer a playlist, tap the playlist name. Tap the Share button , then tap AirDrop.
On your new iPhone, open the Music app and go to For You. Tap the More button , then tap Shared. Select the song or album you want to import, then tap Import. If you’re prompted to turn on iCloud Music Library, tap Turn On in the alert that appears.
Select the songs or albums you want to transfer
In order to select the songs or albums you want to transfer, first open the “Music” app on your iPhone. Next, tap on the “Library” tab near the bottom of the screen. From here, you can choose to view your music by “Artists”, “Songs”, or “Albums”. Tap on one of these options to select it.
Once you’ve selected how you want to view your music, tap on the “Edit” button in the top-right corner of the screen. A pop-up menu will appear asking if you want to “Edit Playlist” or “Delete Playlist”. Tap on “Edit Playlist”.
A new screen will appear with all of the songs or albums in your library. To select which ones you want to transfer, simply tap on the white circle next to each song or album. A blue checkmark will appear inside of the circle once it has been selected. You can also tap on the “Select All” button in the top-left corner of the screen to select all of your music at once.
Select the music you want to share, then tap the Share button .
Choose how you want to share the song:
-Tap Mail, then enter an email address.
-Tap Messages, then enter a phone number or Tap , then choose a contact.
-Tap WhatsApp, then enter a phone number or Tap , then choose a contact.
-Tap More, then tapCopy to Instagram.
You can share music with another iPhone using Bluetooth, or you can use the Share button to share a song via Messages, Mail, or social media. If you have an iPhone with iOS 7 or later and iCloud Music Library turned on, you can also share your music with other devices that are signed in to iCloud using the same Apple ID.
If you’re moving from one iPhone to another and want to take your music with you, you can do it without having to use a computer. Here’s how:
1. On your new iPhone, open the Music app and find the “Library” tab.
2. Tap the “Shared” tab at the top of the screen.
3. Find the music that you want to add to your new iPhone and tap the “Add” button next to it.
4. The music will start downloading onto your new iPhone. Once it’s finished, you’ll be able to find it in your Music library.
