How to Transfer Music between iPhone and Samsung Phone
Apple unveils its latest version of the iPhone every year and many old iPhone users can't wait to upgrade to a new version. Some iPhone users might lose faith in the flagship iPhone and want to switch to an Android phone like Samsung Galaxy & Note series, Sony or LG. However, those iPhone to Android switchers may have some worries, like "will I be stumped by a different user interface?" or "how can I transfer my data from iPhone to Android?", something like that.
Whether you're switching from iOS iPhone to Android Samsung phone and vice versa, one of the most daunting tasks is figuring out how to transfer music you've been listening to on your old iPhone to the new Samsung device (Galaxy S8, Note 8, etc.), or move songs from Samsung to iPhone, instead.
Even though Apple released an app called Move to iOS that allows you to transfer data such as contacts, videos, photos, message history, web bookmarks, mail accounts, and calendars from Android to iPhone, it can't be able to transfer tracks that from music library on your Samsung device to iPhone. On the other hand, getting the songs migrated from an iPhone to a Samsung phone might not be feasible in all situations, particularly when large blocks of tracks are being transferred. Also, Apple prevents users from sharing music across different ecosystem in an effort to discourage piracy.
Fortunately, it isn't difficult to transfer tracks between Samsung and iPhone with the help of 3d party tools. What we're going to use today are two neat and efficient tools to accomplish the tasks.
