- Question from Apple Community
If both you and your family or friend are using iPhone, you may want to transfer iTunes library to the two iPhones so that you don't need to pay for the same music twice. To make it happen, you are given three methods in this guide. Look through them one after another and pick the most suitable one to know how to share music on iTunes between two iPhones.
You can share iTunes music with another iPhone by using Apple’s Home Sharing. Before the sharing process, you have to make sure that both of the iPhones have connected to the same Wi-Fi or Ethernet network and the music you plan to share with others has been purchased.
Follow these steps to make it.
Step 1. On the source iPhone: go to Settings > Music > Scroll down to choose Home Sharing and sign in with your Apple ID.
Step 2. Perform Step 1 on the target iPhone. (The Apple ID signed in the target iPhone should be the same as that in the source iPhone.)
Step 3. On the source iPhone: Open the Music app > Tap Library in the bottom-left corner > Tap Edit > Scroll down and select Home Sharing > Tap Done.
After these steps, you can enjoy the shared music on the target iPhone. You can share iTunes music using Home Sharing among five users at once.
However, since Home Sharing works well based on Wi-Fi, the process may be slow or fail due to an unstable network. Besides, you may be unwilling to share your Apple ID with others, even if they are your friends or family. If you are seeking ways to transfer data from iPhone to iPhone with a different Apple ID, method 2 can help you.
