Music is an integral part of life these days. Try to imagine your smartphone if you couldn’t use it to listen to your favorite songs. It would be a little frustrating.
So, how do you download music to your phone? With Android devices, it’s easy enough. There’s an open file system that allows you to use your smartphone as a compact hard drive with the ability to browse files on its own. If you need to download music, just connect the phone via cable to the PC and drag and drop whatever you want.
However, iPhone owners can’t do that. The file system is closed, and it is impossible to just transfer anything to the device. Of course, the smartphone has a Bluetooth application. However, it is not for transferring data to and from smartphones. It is possible to transfer music, documents, and some applications between phones only on Android devices.
Of course, the iPhone has a small analog called AirDrop for transferring photos and videos between Apple devices. But you can do nothing more with it. For music, however, there is a standard way to download it to your phone. To do this, you install the program iTunes on your PC, and you synchronize the interesting materials with the mobile device through it. Slowly, but surely. However, you may ask: “How can I put music on my iPhone without using the iTunes app?“
Fortunately, we live in a time of technological development, and there are a huge number of different ways that can allow you to download music to your iPhone without using iTunes.
With these tasks, cloud services such as Amazon, Google, and Dropbox can help you. By the way, they are the most popular ways to bypass iTunes. They will help you sync your music library with your device.
Let’s look at how this works using Dropbox as an example:
- Install the Dropbox app on your iPhone by downloading it from the Apple Store. After installing the app on your phone, you will be asked to establish a connection with your PC. To do this on your computer, follow the link given to you, where a QR code will appear on the screen;
- Point a camera of the mobile device to it, and the job is done. The program you need on your PC is in the folder “Downloads”;
- After the installation of Dropbox on your computer, you will drop to the program all the files, which are interesting for you. After that, the necessary content will appear in the “cloud”. Well, then the phone itself synchronizes everything you need.
It’s worth noting that you can download files without the program. It is enough to log in to the browser at the Dropbox website. By the way, you can also listen to music directly from the application, for this purpose there is a built-in audio player.
