This guide will show you how to transfer music from iPad to iPhone so that you can enjoy music on your (new) iPhone.

It is great to watch movies on iPad since it has a big screen. For listening to music, iPhone would be greater since it is less easy to put iPad into the pocket while on the go. But how can we transfer music from iPad to iPhone? iTunes gives a solution for transferring content from your current iPad/iPhone/iPod to a new iPhone, but it would cost you several hours. And what annoys us most is that iTunes don't allow us to transfer non-purchased music from iPad to iPhone.

FonePaw DoTrans (opens new window) is the good alternative to iTunes. This software can transfer music from iPad to iPhone directly. It is not a surprise that it can transfer the purchased music. What's great is that this software can also transfer those songs non-purchased from iTunes, such as the songs ripped from CD. Besides, unlike iTunes, FonePaw DoTrans can copy music from iPad to iPhone XR/XS/X/8/7/6s within seconds.
