In this article, you're going to find out some of the easiest and most efficient ways to transfer all of the songs from computer to your iPhone.

How Can I Copy or Move Songs from PC to iPhone with iTunes?

Step 1: Install iTunes on Your Computer

Here, you need to use iTunes, so if you haven't gotten that on your computer then go ahead and install the program. Even for the latter methods where we won't be using iTunes to transfer music, having the software installed is recommended because iTunes has a very specific driver that lets the computer recognize your iPhone.

Step 2. Import Your Favorite Music Files into iTunes

After you've installed iTunes, open it up by double-clicking the icon on your desktop. All of your music library should now show up in the main windows. Next, you can import your songs to iTunes via two different ways:

2) Click the top left corner icon (or "File" menu with some versions), choose "Add File to Library" (or if you can't find the button, simply press "Ctrl" + "O") and browse to the desired music file. Now the song will appear on the library list.

Step 3. Sync Music from PC/Mac to iPhone

Connect your iPhone to PC and wait for iTunes to recognize the phone. After that, it should appear on the top right corner. You need to sync your phone first before trying to move your music file to it. To reach it, you only need to click your device and hit the "Sync" button on the bottom right corner and wait for the process to complete. After that, click "Library" on the top right corner, and hold your mouse button on your song and drag it to the area on the right (left for older iTunes versions), where your device is. Now your song is saved and the transferring process is completed. (Remember that you MUST sync your phone before you can do this)
