When it comes to how to transfer music from computer to iPhone, for most of us, it is not a tough problem troubling us, because we know we can easily make it with iTunes. The real problem troubling us is that during syncing with iTunes, we will lose the existing media files on our iPhone like music, ringtones, and playlist, etc.

Erasing the previous songs on iDevice was the biggest complaint about iTunes before iTunes 12, but it has been changed with the release of iTunes 12. The new iTunes is fitted with a new feature named "Add To" (iTunes 12.2.2 has renamed it as "Edit Playlist"), which allows you to add media files like music, ringtones, Podcasts, movies, from computer or iTunes library to iDevice without erasing existing items on iDevice. Absolutely, this is limited to that your iTunes library have all the songs on your iDevice, or they still will be erased because of Apple's copyright protection.
