Looking for a way to transfer songs between two different Apple IDs on Mac, iPhone, iPad, or iPod? This guide will show you how to transfer music from one Apple ID to another, or from one iTunes account to another in 1 click. Just read this tutorial to get a simple solution.
After getting a new Apple device, whether a new iPhone or a brand-new MacBook Pro, you may wonder:
Can I transfer Apple music to another Apple ID?
Actually, every song purchased from the iTunes Store is linked to a particular Apple ID. So, it’s hard to move music from one Apple ID to another because you are using a new Apple ID on your new device. Apple officially doesn’t allow you to transfer music between two iOS or Mac devices in different Apple accounts.
Nevertheless, there’s no need to worry about that too much. In the following guide, we will share an effective method to transfer Apple music to a new Apple ID account, which also applies to music transferring from one iTunes account to another. Now, read the following post to learn about the details.
Since there’s no official way, the only available way is to ask for help from some professional iOS music transfer tool like AnyTrans, which can help you transfer Apple music to another Apple ID. And below are its highlights on transferring music between two Apple IDs.
Now, Free Download AnyTrans on your computer firstly, and then follow the simple steps below to transfer music from one Apple ID to another in minutes.
Connect both your iPhones to a computer and run AnyTrans > Choose the device that you want to transfer music from > Choose Device Manager > click Music.
Select your wanted songs, and click the To Device button to move selected songs to another iPhone with a different Apple ID.
If there is no USB cable available or your iPhone cannot be recognized by your computer, then you can try the AnyTrans app to transfer music between two different Apple IDs wirelessly.
Now connect your two devices with the same Wi-Fi and install the AnyTrans app on the two devices (here we will take two iPhones for an example). You can download it by clicking the below button or directly search AnyTrans on App Store.
Step 1. Open AnyTrans on the iPhone that keeps the old Apple ID, tap on My QR code on the top-right corner.
Step 2. Open AnyTrans on the iPhone that keeps the new Apple ID, and tap on the Scan button to scan the QR code on your another iPhone.
Step 3. Choose Music category on your iPhone that keeps the old Apple ID > Tap on Select button at the top right corner to select music > Select the music you want to transfer to your target iPhone > Tap on Send to iPhone button to transfer the selected songs.
This way is not recommended, as it will merge the iTunes libraries of both your accounts. It means there will be lots of duplicates after the process completes. With this method, some of your favorite songs could potentially be deleted. Also, it won’t transfer the purchased music.
