Music is the best entertainment when you are waiting in line. It is necessary for you to have some music on your iPhone. As we all know, an Apple ID will help you sync all the purchased music to iDevice automatically. But how can you add the music that is not purchased from iTunes? In this article, you will get 2 ways to add music to iPhone wirelessly with or without iTunes.

Add Music to iPhone Wirelessly with iTunes

For most people, iTunes is unnecessarily complicated, but most iOS owners believe they have to use it in order to sync music, apps, photos, and videos from their Apple device. Apple tried to simplify the procedure by adding Wi-Fi sync feature. It turned out that not all Apple users know about iTunes WiFi feature as it is disabled by default. Here is the guide on how to sync iPhone over Wi-Fi using iTunes:

Step 1: Connect your iPhone and computer with a USB cable.

This is only used for changing the iTunes settings. You just need to do it once.

Step 2: Tap on the iPhone icon in iTunes > go to Summary tab and tick the 'Sync with this iPhone over Wi-Fi' and 'Manually manage music and videos' options, and click the Apply button.


And now, you can disconnect the USB cable, the iPhone and computer will still be connected.

Step 3: Click the Music tab on the sidebar menu.

Step 4: Drag and drop the music files into the iTunes window.


Step 5: You can play the music on your iPhone now.

Although this is the official way of adding music to your iPhone, many users complain that when they unplug their phones from the computer, the iPhone icon disappears and they cannot add music.
