3 Ways to Transfer Music between Android and iPhone XS/XR/X/8/7/6?
Are you making a switch from an Android phone to an iPhone? If so, we should congratulate you to have the world's best smartphone. Changing to a new phone is simple as long as you have enough budget. However, transferring data from your old Android phone to the new iPhone, for example, transferring music between iPhone and Android is not that easy. Although both the Android phone and iPhone have built-in Bluetooth technology, transferring via Bluetooth between the two different OS phones are limited, which means your devices must be running the same third-party Bluetooth file transfer application.
To a music lover who has saved massive music collections on their iPhone or Android phone, it would become necessary to copy music files from iPhone to Android, or from Android to iPhone without spending time to download these songs once again. In this article, we will introduce three different methods for you to transfer music and songs between Android and iPhone XS/XS Plus/XR/X/8/8 Plus/7/6S.
Method 1: Transfer Music from iPhone to Android via Bluetooth
Method 2: Transfer Music between iPhone and Android via Mobile Transfer (HOT!)
Method 3: Transfer Music from iPhone to Android via Shareit App
Bluetooth is an old but effective way to transfer media files between two phones. But I don't recommend this method because I used to try to transfer files using Bluetooth on my iPhone and Samsung phones, but I didn't succeed in the initial pairing of iOS and Android devices. However, you can try it because it is completely free. To send music from your iPhone to Android, you should do this:
Step 1: Go to "Settings" on your iPhone and Android phones and enable Bluetooth on both phones.
Step 2: Now on the iPhone, click on the "Scan" button to search for nearby Bluetooth-enabled devices. Typically, you will get a list of devices after scanning.
Step 3: From the displayed list, find the Android Bluetooth name and connect to it.
Step 4: Once the pairing is successful, you can go to the iPhone and send the specific music you want to send to your Android phone.
Since the Bluetooth is not always helpful, most phone users might think about using a computer as the middleman for swapping data between iPhone and Android. But some people still feel transferring files via USB cable is complex. They just wonder if there is any easier and quicker way to share music files between iPhone and Android.

Words in the End
However, the Shareit app may not work properly on some older phones, and it transfers much slower than Coolmuster Mobile Transfer. Since Bluetooth cannot work smoothly all the time, we strongly suggest you use the Mobile Transfer to transfer music between iPhone and Android phone.
