How Do I Play The FLAC Files On My iPhone?

The only way you would be able to listen to audio files from your iPhone is to add the songs or files into your iTunes beforehand. However, iTunes can only support, import and play certain audio file types. In order to check whether your audio file format is supported, just visit Apple’s Support. If the audio file is compatible with iTune, just add it to the library using file sharing. At the moment, iTunes or iOS do not support FLAC files but you can try some iTunes plug-ins in case it can play Flac file on iPhone. If it still doesn’t work, you’ll probably have to convert the audio files. Try the Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate for Mac.

Even though storing audio files in a FLAC container would take up a bit more space, a lot of people prefer to play or listen to FLAC files to other file formats. The main reason being is the ability to retain the high quality of the audio. Other common containers used are the MP3 and AAC which compressed the audio files to a smaller size but it is inevitable that you will lose details along the compression. The largest file size are audio files contained uncompressed in the form of WAV and AIFF. However, it’s almost impossible to play them on iOS because iOS devices have limited storage space. There would be similar restrictions on sharing audio files stored as an M4A (ALAC) extension with other non-iOS devices.

1 Upload FLAC files

Once you’ve installed and run the Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate, it won’t take you too long until you can start to drag-and-drop your FLAC files onto the program. If you want to be more cautious, you can always make a duplicate folder of your master copies. It is always a good practice to have a back-up.

3 Convert and play FLAC files on your iPhone

Before you start to convert your audio files, please carefully select the type of output format that you desired. As explained in the above, if you intend to play or listen to FLAC files on iPhone, it is highly recommended to convert it to either an MP3 or M4A file (options can found from the Audio toolbar at the bottom of the screen). An MP3 tends to offer a higher room of flexibility in the situation that you might want to share those audios with family or friends that happen to use non-Apple devices,  whereas an M4A might still be subjected to the DRM.

If you prefer to download music online, you can try out the streaming audio recorder. Other than being able to record your favorite tracks, you can easily set it on a task scheduler mode to either start, stop or shut down automatically. It'll also filter out the ads or commercial to ensure no interruption. You'll never get bored having to listen to same playlist over and over again.
