1. How to transfer music from PC/ Mac to iPhone with iTunes
iTunes is a powerful software created by Apple that allows you to manage iDevices on Windows, while the Finder is the center of all operations on Mac. Therefore, you can transfer tunes from PC to iPhone with them in a few simple steps. The Finder is already pre-installed on Macs while iTunes for Windows PC is downloadable from the official website.
Let’s learn how to proceed it on Windows:
After installing iTunes, connect your cell to the computer using the lightning cable.
iTunes should start automatically. If not, double click its icon to start it.
If it is the first connection between the PC and the iPhone, tap Authorize on the iPhone and Continue on the PC.
After that, click on the iPhone icon you find at the top left and go to the Music section through the left sidebar.
Click Synchronize Music and Apply to start transferring chords from PC to iPhone with iTunes.
If you are not going to synchronize the whole library of your tunes, you can choose to transfer only the songs of some favorite artists or only some playlists. You can do this by checking the selected Playlists, artists, albums, and genres.
Once this is done, select the elements you want to synchronize with the iDevice through the Playlist, Artists, Genres, and Albums boxes. Confirm the operation by clicking on Apply that you find at the bottom right.
After activating this feature, every time you connect the cell to the PC, iTunes will synchronize the library or only the selected files with the cell.
If you don’t want to transfer videos and voice memos, then tick off Include video clips and Include voice memos before clicking Apply. iTunes also allows choosing which music to copy on the iPhone, taking into consideration the free space present on the iPhone. To do this, you must activate the option Automatically fill the open space with songs. Still using iTunes, you can transfer files from PC to cell via WiFi. Just tick on Sync with iPhone via WiFi that you find in the iPhone section.
iTunes also allows you to copy tunes to the iPhone without synchronizing it with it. You can do this using the Manually manage music and videos option. Here’s how to access it:
Connect the iPhone to your computer and open iTunes.
Click on the apple cell icon that you find at the top left.
From the Summary tab, scroll to the bottom, tick on Manually manage music and videos and click Apply to confirm the operation.

Once this is done, you can listen to tunes only by using the Music app on the cell.

Connect your iPhone to the computer using the lightning cable.
Open the Finder by clicking on the icon at the bottom left of the dock.
In the “Positions” section of the left column, click on the name of the connected device.
