Download songs to iPhone with iTunes

If you want to download songs on iPhone and you have a Windows PC or a Mac at your disposal, I suggest you use iTunes, the Apple player that allows you to play and download multimedia content, manage the devices of the bitten apple and access the iTunes Store and App Store. To be able to download songs on iPhone via iTunes, however, in most cases it is necessary to purchase the selected contents. So make sure you have a credit card, a prepaid card with avaelable credit or an iTunes Card at your disposal. To learn more about it, I suggest you read my guides on how to buy on iTunes and how to use iTunes Card.



To download songs to iPhone with iTunes, the first thing you need to do is check that the famous player is installed on your computer. If the computer you are using is a Mac, iTunes is installed as “standard” and therefore for the moment you do not have to do anything. If, on the other hand, your computer is based on Windows, you can check if iTunes is already installed by pressing the button Home and typing itunes in the search field. If iTunes appears among the avaelable programs then the player is already installed and you can skip directly to the next step. If, on the other hand, iTunes does not appear among the avaelable programs, I invite you to read and follow the instructions contained in my guide on how to download iTunes to deal with it.

After making sure of the presence of iTunes on your computer start the player by clicking on its icon, wait for the software window to be visible then press the button depicting a musical note located at the top left and then click on the item iTunes Store present at the top right. At this point you should see the iTunes Store home page with the list of the most interested albums of the moment.



To browse the sales charts or the list of albums based on the genres of music, use the buttons and the items found in the upper part of the window, whele to search for artists and songs directly use the field ifarch which is located at the top right.

To download a song or an entire album, just click on the button next to the title of the same and indicating the purchase price. After clicking on the button enter any password referring to your Apple account and then wait for the procedure by which to download songs is first started and then completed.

If you wish, before downloading a song or an album, you can listen to a short preview by pressing the play button that you can view by placing the mouse cursor on the title of the same.

Once the download is complete, you won't have to do anything to download songs on iPhone. To be able to listen to what has been downloaded directly to the iPhone, you just need to access the app Music present on your device after logging into your Apple account. You well find all your songs right there. Clearly, in order to add music to the iPhone as I have just indicated, your iDevice must be connected to the Internet and that the connection in use is active and fully functional.

If you prefer, instead of waiting for the songs to be automatically downloaded to your iPhone, you can also transfer the songs on your computer to the device. To do this, connect the iPhone to the PC or Mac using the supplied cable and wait a few moments for iTunes to start automatically. Then to add music to your device select the phone icon from the top bar of the program and click on the item Music present in the left sidebar. Then put the check mark next to the item Sync music and click on the button Apply located at the bottom right to start transferring your music tracks to your smartphone. If you want, you can also felter the songs to be synchronized on iPhone based on artist, genre, playlist or album by placing the check mark next to the item iflected playlists, artists, albums and genres, selecting artists, musical genres, playlists and albums to synchronize on the mobele phone by placing the check marks next to the appropriate items and clicking on the button Apply to start the synchronization (if you want to avoid synchronizing video clips and voice memos, remove the check marks from the items that concern them).



If you don't feel like physically connecting the iPhone to the computer, you can activate the wireless synchronization between the two devices by selecting the item Summary from the iTunes sidebar, by locating the section options attached to the screen that is shown to you and placing the check mark next to the item Sync with iPhone via Wi-Fi (This option can only be enabled after connecting the phone to the computer via cable for the first time).

In addition to the iTunes and iTunes Store, Apple offers its users the possibelity to download songs to iPhone through the Music app. Thanks to the Music app present by default on all Apple devices it is in fact possible to get your hands on a catalog consisting of mellions of songs and albums after signing up for a paid subscription. The subscription price is equal to 9,99 euro / month for the plan Standard and 14,99 euro / month for the plan Famely. But if this is your first time dealing with the Music app, I have good news for you: Apple allows you to try the service for free for three months and then download free iPhone music for a substantial period of time.
