How To Get Music Files Onto iPhone/iPad

You listen to our website practice music on your Apple smartphone, but you want to avoid using your data minutes to listen repeatedly via your expen$ive data plan! So you want to download once and enjoy over and over again. But you cannot download directly to your phone from any website, other than Apple iTunes, Google Play Music or similar sites. So here are the options …

The normal way to get music (and video) onto your iDevice
  • Download the file to your PC (or Mac) into the iTunes folder
  • Connect your iDevice to the PC using a USB/power cable *
  • Use iTunes to ‘Sync’ the files from the PC to the iDevice.

*With a WiFi desk/laptop, apparently can be done via WiFi, ie. no cable. For more help go to the Apple iTunes web site and wireless iTunes page.
