Do you want to transfer your music from Android to iPhone? Check this tutorial about how to transfer music from android to iPhone without iTunes.
Although you can’t send files via Bluetooth between iPhone and Android, you can transfer music from android to iPhone without iTunes using WIFI. And it is much faster than the slow BT technology.
In my house, there are three Android phones and an iPhone. Transferring music two Android phones is easy through Bluetooth. Moving or sharing music between an Android and the iPhone via Bluetooth doesn’t work. While it seems that both establish a connection, when sending music files, the iPhone says that the Android is an incompatible device.
How to Transfer Music From Android to iPhone without iTunes
There are two possible ways to transfer music from Android to iPhone without iTunes using your WiFi. The first and the most complete is installing the same app on both the Android and the iPhone. The second is installing only one app on the Android, but this option does the job half (I’ll explain why).
1. Send Anywhere
With this app, you can transfer music from android to iPhone without iTunes (one of the best for this task). This app has been developed to send photos, but you can send any files. The process is identical if you want to do it the other way around, that is, share music from Android to iPhone.
Step by Step:
- You have to install this app both in the Android and in the iPhone.
- Open the app on the mobile that will send the files.
- In the Send section, choose the type of file to be sent (your music in this case).
Select the files in the browser that will open and press the Create Key button. A 6-digit code will appear.
- On the mobile that will receive the files, open the app and, in the Receive box, enter the 6-digit code shown on the other mobile.
- Press the Enter button to start the transfer.
To perform another transfer, you follow the same steps. As I said, the process is the same transfer music from Android to iPhone or from iPhone to Android.
The only requirement is that both devices are connected to the same Wifi network.
This app isn’t only useful to connect an iPhone with Android and transfer your stuff. I use it a lot to pass large files between two Android phones, because it is much, much faster than with Bluetooth.
2. Fast File Transfer (from Android to iPhone only)
The advantage of this app is that it is only necessary to install it on the Android mobile, but the limitation is that it only allows you to transfer music from Android to iPhone (you can’t from iPhone to Android).
In summary, this app creates a Wifi access point on the Android phone, and the iPhone must join that access point to get the file or the shared files.
Step by Step process:
- Install the app on the Android and open it to configure the Wifi network data.
- The sending of files is not done from the app but the file browser. Exit the app, go to the music of your Android and locate what you want to send.
- You will have to share it (press and hold on the file to open the system’s share menu).
- Choose Fast File Transfer from the options.
- The app will open and indicate an IP address at the bottom (a string of numbers separated by dots).
- On the iPhone, look for the name of the Wi-Fi network that you created on the Android and connect to it (use the password you set).
- Finally, open the web browser of the iPhone and enter the IP address that the Android showed, in the box where the URL of a page is placed.
- The iPhone browser will show the file shared by the Android, and you can save it.
- Instead of using that ugly IP address, the iPhone can read the QR code offered by the Android to transfer the music *The iPhone should have an app to read that code
To use Fast File Transfer, it is necessary that both phones are nearby due to the limited reach of the Wifi network created by the Android.
Both applications are used to transfer music from android to iPhone without iTunes. It doesn’t make much sense, but I send an apk file between one phone and another, which is to prove that any file can be shared.
If you want to add another way to share files between an Android and an iPhone or an iPad or have questions about this, please let me know below.
