The most common scenario is that you already own digital copies of the music you wish to put on the iPhone or your mac. If you use iTunes to manage the music, it’s straightforward to sync it to the iPhone.
Unlike Android users who have many available ways to get copies of their music files onto their phones, iPhone users have few of such options. This article gives easy steps of how to move digital copies of your music files from your pc to your iPhone.
- Get the latest version of iTunes on your computer that contains your music If you haven’t done it already.
- Connect your iPhone to the Mac or PC using the Lightning-to-USB cable.
- Then open your iTunes app on your pc. If the device is successfully connected you will see an icon appear on the top right corner of your iTunes.
- Click that icon. You’ll see various details about the device – its model, serial number, iOS version number and so on – and the types of content you can sync with it will be listed down the left-hand side.
- Click “Music” under your phone’s settings in the navigation pane in the left side of the screen
- Click on Sync Music. If there’s a tick already, syncing is on; if not, tick it to switch on syncing for that content type.
- Click on Apply when done. The sync process may take a while, especially if you have a lot of music. When it’s complete, click the eject button to the right of your phone in the navigation pane.
Remember that any time you add new music to your iTunes library, you’ll need to connect your phone and perform a sync.

Sync from Mac/PC to iPhone via Wi-Fi
Finally, if you don’t want to wind with cables, then this is the process for you but beware this process is noticeably slower than using the USB cable because it is limited by Wi-Fi speed.
- Connect your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to the Mac or PC using a USB/Lightning cable.
- Tap on your iTunes app to open it as well as unlock the phone.
- Tap on your device as it appears on the top right corner.
- This time instead of clicking on settings, click on summary below your device at the top left corner. In the Options section, click “Sync with this iPhone over Wi-Fi” and then click “Apply” and “Done” at the bottom of the screen.
You should now be all set to automatically sync including any new music you add to your iTunes library whenever your phone is plugged into power and both the phone and computer are on the same Wi-Fi network.
If you want to manually perform wireless sync, open the Settings app on your phone. Tap “General,” tap “iTunes Wi-Fi Sync,” and then tap “Sync Now.”
