View Full Version : Transfer songs from iMac to iPhone

03-30-2017, 02:36 PM
Hi,I am sure this is as easy as falling off a log but I'm stuck on how to transfer specific tunes from iTunes on an iMac 2011 to an iPhone 6S.I have connected by USB,I have clicked on the phone in iTunes and gone to 'options' where I clicked on 'manually manage music and videos'. I clicked on 'file' and 'add to library' but after that a bit of brain fog has descended.I am hoping someone will be so kind as to give me a step by step on how to add just certain tracks to the phone?Thank you.Larry

Hi Irishman:

I've been using Macs for quite some time and transferring anything from my Mac to my iPhones always confuses me because of the way Apple has it setup. Probably my fault since I don't often do much transferring.

Anyway, this KB Article by Apple (https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201593) should help you to go through the steps much better than me trying to explain it. Let us know if it works for you.

Did you try the steps in this article (https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201593) that administrator Chscag mentioned in post #2?

Hmm Administrator Chscag Almost sounds like something right out of Orwell That couldn't mean anything could it Charlie?

Yes i have problem to start with conection my Mac with iPhone How do i do that dont have any USB port

Which Mac do you have? When you say you don't have any USB ports do you mean that none of them are working or do you mean they are all being used?

I have mac gold 12' 2016 year production and i do not see any USB the only port is the one for charging

I think you need a USB C to lightning cable such as one of these (https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1/136-2468630-5417216?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=usb+c+to+lightning+cable). With that you should be able to connect your iPhone to your Mac and follow the directions in that Apple article. You can also do the syncing wirelessly (http://www.guidingtech.com/16517/sync-iphone-itunes-wirelessly-wi-fi/) but you must use a cable the first time to set things up.

Thx You i will get a cable tomorrow

You're welcome. That should work but I can't test it since I don't have a Mac with a USB-C port to it.
