2 Ways to transfer music from iPhone to android

Switching phones is always a hassle and data transfer can be a tedious job. You might need to copy files individually or just wait for the transfer to complete. Imagine a 1 GB file taking an hour to complete and you’re just sitting around to begin the next transfer. It becomes even more frustrating when you are switching OS. If you are switching from iPhone to Android, data transfer can be a more complex job as both OS do not allow easy transfer.

In case of music, iPhone supports iTunes and Android supports Google music. Hence transfer doesn’t seem easy.

So, isn’t there an easier way out? Here are the two ways you can use to transfer music from iPhone to Android.

Part1: Using your computer

This will be like a primitive approach of transferring data manually from one folder to other. You will have to connect your phones to your computer and locate the folders in your device that carries music. Use usb cable from respective manufacturers and use computer either mac or android. Use the following steps to transfer the music.

  1. Connect both of your device using respective USB. Once, the devices are connected use the windows explorer if using windows. Go to the iPhone device and enter the respective storage, which stores the music. Now locate the file that stores all your music in the folder. Either you can copy or select all for drag and drop.
  2. Now go to Android device. Do the same as there will be internal storage and SD card. Use any of the following to store music. If there is music folder drag and drop the music from the iPhone folder or you can create one folder and drag and drop the necessary files.

Make sure you do not disturb both the devices and its connection. The time taken will depend on the size of the file transferred. Though this method does not organize the music effectively like iTunes or Google Play does but you can always organize it after the music is transferred.
