Just downloaded some wonderful songs on your computer and want to import them to your iPhone for listening on-the-go? Then you get the right place, in the following article, we will show you two easy yet helpful ways to transfer your music from computer to your iPhone.

1. Copy Music from Computer to iPhone via iTunes

When it comes to transferring music from computer to iPhone, the first thing that jumps into our mind is to turn to iTunes for help. With iTunes, you can sync your music, movies, TV shows, photos and more from PC/Mac to iPhone. Here are the detailed steps.

Step 1 Connect the iPhone to your computer using the provided dock connector.

Step 2 Launch the iTunes software. Under the Devices section in the left window pane, click on your iPhone.

Step 4 Make sure the Sync Music option is enabled -- click the check box next to it if not.

Step 5 If you want to transfer all your music, click the radio button next to Entire music library. Alternatively, to cherry pick songs from your iTunes library, click the radio button next to Selected playlists, artists, and albums.

Step 6 To start transferring music to your iPhone, click the Apply button to start syncing.

Step 7 When the syncing process is complete, disconnect your iPhone.

Tips: if the computer is signed into the same iCloud account with your iPhone, you can also turn on iCloud Music Library to sync music.

2. Transfer Music from PC/Mac to iPhone via Syncios

iTunes is probably the first tool when people are talking about iPhone data transferring, but normally, we do not recommend to use it, as iPhone can be synced with only one iTunes library at a time. If you already made it on other computer and want to transfer music from this PC to iPhone, you will lose everything on your iPhone. Thus, to transfer music from PC/Mac to iPhone without any data loss, you need a good iTunes alternative.

Here you are recommended to use Syncios iPhone Manager. It is a free and helpful iOS device manager, which helps you sync all types of files between your computer and your device. With this handy manager program, we can easily transfer any of your media files on computer to your iPhone without iTunes.

Step 1 Launch Syncios Manager on computer and connect iPhone to computer.

Step 2 Click Media button on the left panel of Syncios, then click Add button. You can choose "Add file" or "Add folder" to iPhone. After selecting the music folder, click Open to import the music to iPhone.
