Adding music to your iPhone is a simple process that allows you to listen to your favorite tunes on the go. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to add music to your iPhone using iTunes.

Step 1: Connect your iPhone to your computer

First, make sure you have the latest version of iTunes installed on your computer. Then, use a USB cable to connect your iPhone to your computer. Once connected, launch iTunes.

Step 2: Select your iPhone in iTunes

In the top-left corner of the iTunes window, click on the device icon to select your iPhone. This will open the Summary page for your iPhone.


  • If you don’t see the device icon, make sure your iPhone is properly connected and unlocked.
  • If prompted on your iPhone with a “Trust This Computer” message, tap “Trust” and enter your passcode.

Step 3: Choose the music you want to add

Now it’s time to select the music you want to add to your iPhone. There are two methods you can use:

  • Method 1: Syncing Entire Music Library
  • If you want all of the music from your iTunes library on your iPhone, click on “Music” in the left sidebar of iTunes and check the box next to “Sync Music.” Then choose whether you want to sync all songs or selected playlists, artists, albums, and genres.

  • Method 2: Manually Choosing Songs
  • If you prefer only selected songs or playlists on your iPhone, create a new playlist in iTunes and add the desired songs or playlists to it.

    Then, go back to the Summary page for your iPhone and under the “Options” section, check the box next to “Manually manage music and videos.” Finally, click on “Done” in the bottom-right corner.

Step 4: Sync your music to your iPhone

Once you have chosen your preferred method, click on the “Apply” button at the bottom-right corner of iTunes. This will sync your selected music to your iPhone.


  • The syncing process may take some time depending on the size of your music library.
  • Make sure not to disconnect your iPhone during the syncing process.

Step 5: Enjoy your music on your iPhone!

After the syncing process is complete, you can disconnect your iPhone from your computer. Open the Music app on your iPhone, and you will find all of your added music ready to be played!

Congratulations! You have successfully added music to your iPhone using iTunes. Now you can enjoy listening to your favorite songs wherever you go.

Note: Remember that if you want to add more music in the future or remove existing songs from your iPhone, simply repeat these steps with any changes you desire.
