  1. There are many apps available currently on the web that allows iPhone users to download music. The main thing is to transfer those music to your iPhone iTunes account. It means iPhone storage. Once those music have been transferred to phone storage, you can access them in your car play or any other device that use the same Apple ID. So, the more accurate question is how to transfer music to iPhone storage or to iTunes.

  2. Do you know what I liked in your article most? Your last part where you’ve mentioned the exact method how you actually download music from youtube to your iPhone after converting those YouTube videos to mp3. I also do the same thing when I want new sound track or ringtone for my iPhone XR.

    1. Look, you don’t need any complex method to download videos or music from Youtube. You can use Youtube to mp3 online converter and iTunes to transfer music or video contents from your pc to iPhone. If you would use iPhone safari directly then it would be best for you.
      hope this would help you.

  3. Very straight forward and detailed informative article, thanks for the info. I use one or two of above tricks on my iPhone to download free music. Specially, the last one that YouTube allows us download any song or music track completely free after converting video to mp3

    1. The same trick, i suggested to Erika a minute ago
      smart move

  4. I’m using spotify since 7 years and all the time I’ve been a premium user. During this long journey, the updates and frequent. All free music as well as premium contents get updated within a few hours. Recently, Spotify developers have updated it’s UI and somehow, it doesn’t have convenient music download option. I heard about Spotify Plus aka Spotify++. Can we use it as alternative to premium subscription?

    1. Personally, I will suggest you to look Youtube music app. It’s genuine, able to play music in the background on your iOS too. Download option may be also available there. Plus, main thing is, YouTube music is free. (also have paid plan)
