If you have just switched to Android from an iPhone, you almost certainly are wondering how to transfer music from your old device to the new. Of course, if you have used any streaming services for audio like Spotify or Apple Music, the problems with the “migration” you will not have. But if you gathered a collection of tracks in iTunes, all is not so obvious. Well, let’s figure out how to transfer music from iTunes to an Android smartphone.
First you need to sync your old iPhone with the iTunes library on your PC or laptop. And only after that you can begin the transfer of audio recordings. And it can be done in two ways.
Transfer music from iTunes to an Android smartphone using a cable
First, connect your smartphone (or tablet) to the computer. Every Android device behaves differently, but in General you should receive the request from the gadget to permit the transfer of files. Under “My computer” (if you’re using Windows) or desktop (if you are a MacOS user) you will find your device. If your phone or tablet has SD card, it will be displayed with a separate icon.
Now you need to choose where you want to transfer your music files, then you will need to open your iTunes music library. By default in Windows it is located in the folder where you have installed iTunes. Then look for a folder “iTunes Media” and it has come to the “Music” folder. On MacOS the same way about the same, except that the iTunes there is a folder with the name of your user in topic “Music”. Access to it can be accessed through Finder.
Once you have found your own music, feel free to copy them from iTunes to your device. Wait for the copy process and enjoy your favorite tracks. By the way, what’s your favorite music genre? Tell us about it in our chat in Telegram.
