iPhone offers an amazing music player and the user experience is better than most smartphones. If you’re thinking about switching to iPhone or you already have one, you must be wondering if there’s an easy way to transfer music from android to iPhone.
News flash: Now it’s possible to transfer your favorite tracks without a hassle. Switch Mobile Transfer makes the process easy for you in three easy steps. Below, we give you step-by-step details plus another alternative.
One of the easiest apps to use today, Switch Mobile Transfer offers you one-click transfer functionality. All you need are USB cables for connecting the devices to your PC.
Step 1. Start by downloading DataKit Switch Mobile Transfer software. Install and run it on your computer to open a user-friendly window.
Step 2. Click ‘Phone to Phone Transfer’ and connect your Android device and iPhone. Here, you’ll see both phones on opposite sides of the open Switch Mobile Transfer software.
Make sure the “Source” is the android and the “Destination” is your new iPhone. Use the flip button at the center to switch their position.
Step 3. Between the two devices, you’ll notice a section that allows you to select the files you want to transfer. Click the music folder (and any other files you wish to transfer) and hit “start transfer.”
What’s more, you can choose to erase the contents of your old phone or backup your data to prevent data loss.
iPhones gives Android users an “easy” option. The Move to iOS App, available on Google Play Store, is a wireless transfer app that uses Wi-Fi connectivity.
The Move to iOS App should always be onscreen during the entire transfer process. And here is the official warning “…Make sure that you leave both devices alone until the transfer finishes. For example, on your Android device, the Move to iOS app should stay onscreen the whole time. “
What more ridiculous is “…If you use another app or get a phone call on your Android before the transfer finishes, your content won’t transfer.” That means you cannot use the phones while the transfer is still in progress, if you do, then you have to do it all over again.
Additionally, if you don’t do it when you first get the new iPhone. You will have a hard time getting a code again to do the transfer because there’s no app to just pull it up and you have to reset the iPhone.

Anyway, if you are ready, here are the steps to transfer your songs:
Step 1. Turn on Wi-Fi on your Android phone. Make sure both phones have enough charge and there’s sufficient storage on your iPhone.
