Hello everyone. My sister got a new iPhone and asked me to share the music from my iPhone with her. But the problem is we two don’t know how to achieve this goal. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.

Basically the only way to share music across iOS devices in the past is to log into each device with the same Apple account. But this is not unrealistic for most people. Now you can easily share music with friends and family through Apple Home Sharing and other ways that you can use. Let’s now take a look at what these methods are.

Transfer Among Devices

1. How to Use Home Sharing

Before we start to use Home Sharing to share music, photos, videos, apps, etc across devices, we should get to know what is Home Sharing first. Home sharing (also called Family Sharing) is a feature that allows family members get immediate access to each others’ purchased music, movies, TV shows, books, and apps, and can download them to their own devices any time they like. But Family Sharing only works on devices with iOS 8 or later or OS X Yosemite or later. Check below steps to learn how to do it.

  1. On your iPhone,

    go to Settings

    Tap iCloud, choose Set upand then select Family Sharing…Get Started

    Continue so that to enable Family Sharing. Then a credit or debit card is required.

  2. You can add members to your group by tapping Add Family Member…. You are allowed to invite at most 5 members via email books which they will need to confirm.
  3. As the Family organizer, you will invite family members and agree to pay for iTunes, iBooks, and App Store purchases they initiate.
  4. If you want to download the music from one of the members, go to iTunes Store More Purchased and then select the family member you want to download music from.
