Listening to music with your iPhone is one thing you frequently do to relax in your free time. To enrich your music library, you can put music on your iPhone from your computer, download music to your iPhone directly, or subscribe to music streaming services like Apple Music and Spotify. When you get a new iPhone, one thing you will do is transfer music from the computer to the iPhone or download music to the iPhone from the Internet.
But how can you transfer music from your computer to your iPhone? Use iTunes? It's workable but not the optimal way to get things done. Read this guide and learn all the practical ways to add music to the iPhone, either from a computer or music sites.
"How do I transfer music from my computer to my iPhone XR without iTunes?"
This is one question you may encounter when you buy a new iPhone, and you will like the free iPhone transfer software - EaseUS MobiMover, which can help you transfer music from the computer to the iPhone all at once. Check below for what the tool can be used for:
Thus, with EaseUS MobiMover, you can not only add music to your iPhone from the computer but also transfer music from iPhone to computer.
To transfer music from Mac or PC to your new iPhone, follow the step-by-step tutorial below.
Step 1. Connect your iPhone to your computer and run EaseUS MobiMover. Then click "PC to Phone" > "Select Files".
Step 2. Select the music files you want to transfer from computer to your iPhone and then click "Open".
Step 3. Check the songs and click "Transfer" to start transferring music from PC to iPhone. When it has done, go to the Music app on the iOS device to enjoy music.
Tips: as you can see from the software interface, EaseUS MobiMover can transfer more files than music from your computer to your iPhone. You can copy photos, videos, contacts, books, ringtones, and more files to your iPhone from PC as well.
Cloud storage services are also helpful when transferring music from a computer to iPhone. Unlike desktop software that needs a USB cable to work, cloud storage services share media files across your devices over network connections.
Generally, if you want to add music to your iPhone 13/12/11/XR/XS/XS Max using a cloud-based service successfully, you need to make sure:
Let's take Dropbox as an example to show how to copy music to an iPhone from a computer.
To transfer music from PC to iPhone using Dropbox:
Step 1. Upload music from your computer to Dropbox.
Step 2. Get the Dropbox app on your iPhone from the App Store.
Step 3. Sign in with the account you use on your computer.
Step 4. Download the music files from your computer to your iPhone.
iTunes is the official way to sync music from computer to iPhone. Workable as it is, an annoying drawback of using iTunes syncing to add music from iTunes to the iPhone is that it will replace the media files (music, movies, TV shows, and books) with the synced items. That means there is a potential data loss on your iPhone.
However, using iTunes is a good choice if you want to transfer music from a computer to a new iPhone.
To import music to iPhone using iTunes:
Step 1. Connect your iPhone to your computer using a USB cable and wait for iTunes to launch automatically.
Step 2. In the iTunes window, click "File" > "Add File to Library" to add the songs you want to transfer to the iTunes music library.
Step 3. After you import the songs to the iTunes library, click the "Device" button in iTunes and choose the "Music" option.
Step 4. Check the option "Sync Music" > "Remove and Sync."
Step 5. Choose to sync the "Entire music library" or "Selected playlists, artists, albums, and genres."
Step 6. Click "Sync" > "Done" to start adding music from iPhone to the computer.
Apart from transferring music from a computer to an iPhone to expand your iPhone music library, you can also choose to download music to your iPhone directly.
There are many websites on which you can enjoy listening to music online. If you want to download these songs to your iPhone and listen to them offline, you can use a free audio downloader to save music from the website to your iOS devices.
You don't need to find other tools because the iOS data transfer tool EaseUS MobiMover introduced above also serves the function of a free video & audio downloader. It enables you to download videos from YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook and download music from SoundCloud, MySpace, and more to your computer or iPhone/iPad.
To download music to your iPhone using the audio downloader, you can refer to the guide here on how to download music from SoundCloud.
If you prefer to download music to your iPhone directly on your device, you can use Apple Music if you have subscribed to it. As long as you subscribe to the Apple Music service, you can download the songs you like from Apple Music to your device for offline listening.
To add music to your iPhone from Apple Music:
Step 1. Subscribe to Apple Music on your iPhone.
Step 2. On your iOS device, find the song/album/playlist you like and want to download.
Step 3. Press and hold the song/album/playlist, then choose the "Add to library" button to add the song/album/playlist to your music library.
Step 4. After the songs are added to your library, touch, and press to tap the "Download" icon to save the song to your iPhone.

With this article, you will never struggle with the problem of how to add music to your iPhone after you get a new iDevice.
Usually, your music is stored in your Music app. Apart from these music files, other music is placed in a folder called "Music" in your iPhone's internal storage. To access these music files, you'll need to jailbreak your device or use a file management tool to access and manage them.
As we introduced above, you can directly download music from audio-sharing sites to your device using EaseUS MobiMover, which can help you download music from popular sites like SoundCloud and easily transfer the downloaded items to your iPhone.

To do this, you can go to Settings > Music, scroll down to find Optimised Storage, and turn it off.
