How to Transfer Music from Computer to iPhone! Hello Friends! Welcome back to AppleFrendly. Video #58 Today I’m going to tell you everything about
transferring the music from computer to iPhone using iTunes and these are the topics that
I’m going to discuss today. Even if I’m showing this using Computer,
steps are going to remain the same for Mac users as well. So, without further ado, let’s get started! So, Let’s start with the first method. i.e. Managing the Music Manually. So, launch the iTunes on Computer/Mac. Connect iPhone and tap this little iPhone
icon. Now, under ‘Summary’ section, select this
‘Manually manage music & videos’ Now let’s go back and add music to iTunes
Library. Always remember that, before adding music
to iPhone, you need to add music to iTunes Library. And then only you can transfer it to your
iPhone. So, this step is going to be common for both
the methods. So, select ‘File’ on the main menu bar. Select ‘Add File to Library…’ A browser window will open up. Look for the songs that you want to add to
iTunes Library. Select that song and tap this ‘Open’ button here. Now, we have added the new song to iTunes
Library. Now to transfer it to your iPhone, just select
the song and drag it over ‘Devices’ section, on your iPhone. That’s all! Now, when I select the ‘Music’ option
here, it’ll show my new song on my iPhone. Now I just have to sync my iPhone with iTunes. So, that’s how you add music to iPhone manually. The advantage of this method is you never
lose your old songs from your iPhone, even if you don’t have them in your iTunes Library. As in this case, I have only 4 songs in my
iTunes Library but I’ve got 9 songs on my iPhone. So, when I sync my iPhone with iTunes using
this method, I’ll not lose any of the old song from my iPhone even if it is not there
in my iTunes Library. Which is exactly not the case with the second
method. Now let’s see, how the second method works. Just tap this little iPhone icon here. Now under ‘Music’ section, you’ve got
this ‘Sync Music’ option. When you select this checkbox, it gives a
pop-up warning. It says that, it’ll replace all the songs
on your iPhone with the songs in your iTunes Library. Let me show you, what does it exactly mean. So, let me Cancel it for now and let’s go
back to our iTunes Library page. Now here, as you can see, I’ve got only
3 songs in my iTunes Library. And if I select ‘Music’ option under ‘Devices’
section, I’ve got total 8 offline songs. So, if I had selected ‘Sync Music’ option
earlier, iTunes would have deleted these 8 songs and replaced it with these 3 songs. I would have lost my old songs which are not
there in my iTunes Library. And that is why I don’t prefer this method. So, let’s go back to iPhone and see what
are the other options that we have for syncing music automatically. Here, if I select the checkbox, as we already
know it gives a warning. Still, I’ll go ahead and select ‘Remove
and Sync’ for a demo purpose. And when you select, you get two more options
beneath it. The first one is ‘Entire music library’ If you keep this option selected, it will
simply sync the songs from iTunes Library to iPhone. As in our case, 8 songs will be replaced with
3 songs. Another option is ‘Selected playlist, artists,
albums, and genres’ This option is useful if you want to sync
only selected playlists and not the entire music library. Like ‘Recently Added’ playlist. I would suggest to keep ‘Entire music library’
selected in case you’re using this method. So, this completes the second method. No matter what method we use, we have to select
‘Sync /Apply’ button at the bottom right hand corner of the iTunes window to transfer
music to iPhone. And now, iTunes is transferring music to iPhone
from the Computer. Now, let me tell you what happens if you switch
between these two methods. Well, if you’re managing music manually
and switching to automatic syncing method, you may lose your old songs from your iPhone if
you don’t have them in your iTunes Library. On the other hand, if you’re switching from
automatic syncing to manually Managing method, you’ll not lose anything. Because iTunes Library and iPhone Music are
not in sync. So now, you can decide which method you want
to follow to transfer music from Computer to iPhone. So, that’s all for now! I hope you guys understood the difference
between the two methods. And if this video helped, share it with your
friends and loved ones. And if want to see more tutorials like this,
