Three Simplest Ways to Share Music between iPhones

"I purchase lots of rock music from Apple music, and I want to share those songs with my friends. Is there any tool that can do that?"
Share iphone Music Files

The above two questions are from Apple Discussion. As the closure of iOS system, iPhone users suffer a lot to share music files between iOS devices (iPhone, iPad and iPod) like the above two users. But it is still possible to share music files between iPhones. In this article, we will share you three ways to share iPhone music with another iPhone.

Solution one: Share music on iPhone with iTunes Home Sharing

If you use iTunes Hoem Sharing (iTunes Home Sharing does not work?) to share music between iPhones, what you need to make sure is that iPhones with before iOS 8.4 are on the same Wi-Fi network. And follow the step-by-step guide to get iPhone to iPhone sharing with iTunes.

Step 1 On your iPhone, go to "Settings" > "Music" > scroll down to find "Home Sharing".

Step 2 Log in your Apple ID and password and hit "Done", and repeat the process for all the music files you want to share with another iPhone.

Step 3 Open the Music app on another iPhone you also want to listen to the music files.

Step 4 If you use Apple music, tab "More" > "Shared" > hit the library you want to listen to. If you do not have Apple music on another iPhone, tab "My Music" > "Songs" or "Albums" and select "Home Sharing".

This way will take minutes to copy music from iPhone to another iPhone, but not stream, which is what you should keep in mind. iTunes Home Sharing also gets you share iTunes videos free.

Solution two: Send music from iPhone to another iPhone with AirDrop

Another feature for iPhone users is AirDrop, which functions similarly as Bluetooth. Different from iTunes Home Sharing, this method demands you to get iPhones with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi on, and Apple Music running iOS 8.4 or later, and iPhone with iOS 7 or later. Version is limited as below:

iPhone 5 or later
iPad Pro, iPad (4th generation) or later, iPad mini or later, iPod touch (5th generation) or later.
Mac with OS X Yosemite or later

Step 1 On your iPhone, swipe from bottom to up to turn on "AirDrop", and choose "Everyone".

Step 2 Launch Apple Music, hit the new tab and find the songs that you want to share.

Step 3 Tap "More" on the right bottom to select "Share Song…", where you will be given various ways like Airdrop, Message, Facebook, Mail, Twitter, Copy Link and More to send your music, and you need to choose "AirDrop" to send music from iPhone to iPhone.

Apart from music, you could also share contacts, photos, and more. In this way, you could get free music on iPhone from your old iPhone.

Solution three: Transfer music from iPhone to iPhone with Music Share

Besides the above iPhone sharing apps to move music, another easy to use music sharing utility you cannot miss is Music Share.
