And in this guide, we will show you how to transfer the music and other data from your iPhone to Android literally with a single click using a third party program called TunesBro Phone Transfer.

Step 3Start Copying Music from iPhone to Android

You must not disconnect any of your device from the computer at this point or the transferring process will fail. Once, the status bar is completed to 100%, you can check your Android smartphone and you should be able to see all the music files from your Music app.

Method 2: Transfer Music from iPhone to Android via Shareit App without Computer

Secondly, you can also try copying the music using Shareit app. ShareIt is a free app available on iOS and Android. it can connect both phones via Wi-Fi. However, the app might not work properly on some old devcies. And the transfer speed is much slower than TunesBro Phone Transfer. Please keep in mind of that. Here's how to use Shareit to transfer music from iPhone to Android:

Step 1: Download Shareit app on both iPhone and Android smartphone.

Step 2: Launch the program in both smartphones and tap on "Send" from your iPhone and tap on "Receive" from your Android smartphone.

Step 3: Both phones should be connected now. Select all the music files that you want to transfer from iPhone and click on "Send". Make sure that both phones should be placed not far than 25 meters or else the connection till be lost.

Step 4: Once, the transferring process is finished, you can check your Android smartphone to discover all the music items are transferred.

Method 3: Wirelessly Transfer Music via Bluetooth Technology

Bluetooth is old but an effective way to transfer media files between mobile phones. The reason why I didn't recommend this method in firts place is that there is a big problem in pairing iOS and Android device at the same time. I tried it on my iPhone 5S and Galaxy S8, it just failed to work. I also heard a lot of compliants about it from online forurms. However, you can give it a try as it is totally free.

Step 1: Enable Bluetooth feature on both phones. It is located at the Settings section.

Step 2: Now on iPhone, Tap on "Scan" button to search nearby Bluetooth-enabled devices. Usually, you will get a list of devices after scanning.

Step 3: Find the Android devcie name and connect to it.

Step 4 : After pairing successfully, you can choose the music from iPhone and send it to Android phone.

It is not a wise decision to use Shareit app or Bluetooth to transfer music if the list was large. Once the connection was broken, which happens regularly during wireless transfer, you have to re-do it from start. Although, we showed how to transfer music from iPhone to Android in this tutorial.
