Believe it or not, there are other ways to copy music from iTunes to iPhone without having to rely on the very limited sync features offered by iTunes itself. With the programs we’re going to be introducing below, you can enjoy the relative ease of using a data transfer software over the more common and stressful methods! Stick around till the end to find out just how these two programs can help you out!
First, we’re going to introduce you to iMusic. It’s a relatively basic music transfer program that you can use in place of iTunes. With it, you won’t have to worry about accidentally deleting your data (or even just not being able to move your songs at all.) After all, unlike iTunes — which has an audience to try to persuade to purchase Apple Music, iMusic requires only a year subscription fee (or a cheap one-time payment for the full license.) When you get the premium version of this product, you can expect advanced tools and features such as:
iMusic is known for several different features. However, the one that we’re going to focus on today is the iTunes to Device transfer option. Which can be found by clicking the “Device” button on the top menu screen.
Note: Doing this will bring you to a page where you can see the different options you have pertaining to the device connected to your PC (so make sure you have it connected.)
As mentioned, we’re focusing on the transfer from iTunes to Device option today. Which is the second option on the list available (marked in the image below.)
Click the options general direction and wait to be transported to a secondary screen where you will be able to select which files you want to move.
If you want to transfer your entire iTunes library into your Device, then select the “Entire Library” option provided (if not, you can also select separate items below it for a more controlled transfer.) Once you are done selecting the files you want to move, click the Transfer button and let iMusic do its thing!
Note: You can try out the FREE trial made available by iMusic from their official website.
For the second data transfer software that we’re going to introduce, we’ve chosen dr.fone. It’s actually fairly similar to iMusic — most data transfer programs look pretty much the same. However, there are minor interfacing differences that set these two apart. Rather than being made specifically for the transfer of music, it takes on broader responsibilities by offering tools such that can be used for recovery, removal, repair, etc. The only things that you’d have to watch out for when using dr.fone include:
With dr.fone, the first thing that you’ll be greeted by is its numerous options. It’s a bigger program (which is matched by its price) so there is a bit more that you can use it for.
For our purpose today, however, we’re going to select the Transfer option (as marked in the image below.)
You should have been moved to a window that looks very similar to iMusic (just with a different design and options.) This is the “Home” window. You won’t have to move from here to continue. In fact, all you have to do next is select the Transfer iTunes Media to Device option. Which, similar to iMusic, will move you to a secondary screen.
This is our final step! For this, we’ve been moved to the “Transfer iTunes Media to Device” window. It doesn’t have much on it. Just a greyed-out area where you can select (and de-select) the media that you want to move.
However, just know, that it will remove all the songs that you have on your iPod.Once you’ve decided which files you want to transfer to your device, simply click the Transfer button.
Depending on how big the files that you are transporting are, this might take a couple of minutes. However, much like with iMusic, you can be rest assured that none of your files will be unnecessarily deleted.
