Music entertains and helps us momentarily forget our troubles: it's only natural that we share our favorite tracks with friends, family and the people we love. Most iPhone users consume music through Apple Music and would love to know how to AirDrop music from one iPhone to iPhone. AirDrop is a feature on iPhone X/8/8 Plus/7/7 Plus/6/6S/6 Plus/6S Plus/5S/SE, other iOS and Macs that allows users to send music, photos, videos and other types of data by using Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. This article explains how to AirDrop music between two iPhones.
1. Music found on the Apple Music subscription service, either online or downloaded to your device, but not your own personal imported library.
2. Music you have saved to iCloud through iTunes Match can be shared with AirDrop.
(Please NOTE that Music you have imported into iTunes, then synced to your iPhone cannot be shared. You can use Tenorshare Phone to Phone Transfer to transfer all music on iPhone without restrictions.)
Wondering how to send music from iPhone to iPhone? iPhone users can easily share songs by turning on Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, selecting them and finally sharing with your contacts. The detailed procedure is explained below.
Step 1: Swipe up from the bottom of both iPhones to launch Control Panel and turn on Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
Step 2: Enable AirDrop on both iPhones by tapping the AirDrop icon and selecting one of Contacts Only or Everyone.
Step 3: Launch Apple Music by tapping its icon.
Step 4: Select the song or album you would like to share and tap the share icon. (The share icon is a square with an upward pointing arrow.)
Step 5: Tap the More(..) icon that is located at the bottom of the interface and select Share Song. (If you selected an album, tap Share Album.)
Step 6: Tap the contact you wish to transfer the songs to, then tap the iPhone icon to send music to them.
Step 7: A pop-up alert will be displayed on the iPhone you are transferring songs to with the message "AirDrop "iPhone would like to share an iTunes Radio Station."." Tap Accept to share the songs or album.
Some users have complained that contacts are not displayed on AirDrop when they want to share their music or other data to another iPhone. This section explains different ways of fixing the issue.
Method 1. Correctly Set AirDrop
When setting up AirDrop users can select one of three options: Receiving Off, Contacts Only and Everyone. While it is obvious that you need to ensure you do not select Receiving Off, we recommend choosing Everyone since Contacts Only has to verify your contacts. Follow the procedure below.
Method 2: Update iOS
Bluetooth on Apple's devices is controlled by Apple's Bluetooth Stack that controls the radios on your iPhone. The issue could be stemming from Bluetooth malfunction and can easily be resolved by updating your software. Follow the procedure below.
Method 3. Reset Network Settings
Since Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are subsets of networks, we recommend that you reset the network settings in order to fix AirDrop issues. Follow the procedure below.
AirDrop is a great feature but it has some disadvantages. One, you can't share all the music on Apple Music on your iPhone. Secondly, it can only be used on iOS 8.4 and later and iPhone 5 and later. These two are reasons enough to seek AirDrop alternative.
