SoundCloud allows you to listen to 120M+ tracks for free. If you upgrade to SoundCloud Go plan, you can save music offline on mobile. Do you want to listen to SoundCloud music offline? Here, I will show you how to download SoundCloud songs to iPhone or PC for free.

Download SoundCloud Tracks on iPhone with Siri Shortcuts

It is not hard to download files on iPhone if you use the right tool. Actually, Apple has provided a free app to help you download anything from the web and you can also use it to download free music on iPhone.

That app is called Shortcuts. As the updated version of Workflow, Shortcuts allows you to automate many complex actions in one tap. You can also add it to Siri, so you can use Siri voice command to invoke it.

Enough introduction. Let’s just see how it works.

Step 1. Install the Shortcuts app from AppStore and get this SoundCloud Downloader shortcut.

Step 2. Copy the link of the SoundCloud song that you want to download on iPhone. If you prefer the SoundCloud app, you can tap the Share button and select the shortcut from share sheet.

Step 3. Open Shortcuts app and run this SoundCloud Downloader shortcut.


Step 4. If the song link you input is correct, it will show you the music tag information. If that is what you want to download, tap OK to continue.


Step 5. Select to save the SoundCloud song as the original format or convert it to M4A or another audio format. After that, you can select a location to save the downloaded music.


As you can see, all the music meta tags info will all be saved, so you do not have to use a Music tag editor to reorganize the downloaded songs. 

If you do not want to get prompted when downloading songs, you can edit this shortcut a bit by simply deleting the alert action. You can also specify a location at the last action Save File, so downloaded files will be saved there without prompting you. 

This Shortcut does not support playlist download. If you input a playlist link, you will receive an error to tell you so.

However, this does not allow you to save the SoundCloud songs to Apple Music library. To do that, you will need your computer to transfer music to iPhone Music Library.

How to Download SoundCloud Music on PC

There are a few free online tools to help you download music from SoundCloud without a subscription. You can simply choose one to download tracks from SoundCloud.

I recommend you Klickaud because it allows you to download SoundCloud playlist and no ads found on the website.


You can just paste the song link there and click Download. wait a short while, click Download Complete to start downloading the music. You can also download the Artwork here. 

Transfer SoundCloud Songs to iPhone Music Library

Of course, you can add the downloaded songs to iTunes Library and transfer them to iPhone if you have it installed on your PC. Here, I will not use it because it is not easy to use and I had some problem updating it.

There is a much easier tool IOTransfer that allows you to drag and drop to transfer files between iPhone and PC. It also supports Wi-Fi File Transfer so you do not actually need to fetch your USB lightning cable.

You can follow the steps below to see how it works.

Step 1. Download and install IOTransfer on your Windows PC. in the meantime, connect your iPhone to this computer.

Step 2. Within IOTransfer, click on Manage from the top menu and then navigate to Music section.


Step 3. Drag and drop the downloaded SoundCloud songs here. Or you can click the Import option to select the music files. 

That’s it. All the downloaded SoundCloud music will be saved to your iPhone shortly and you can open the Music app on your iPhone to listen to these songs even when you are offline.

Have you seen a better way to download SoundCloud songs on iPhone? I think the SoundCloud Music Downloader works great. Let me know if you meet any problem while using the shortcut.
