When you get a new iPhone 8/8 Plus, and want to import music from iPhone to iPhone, this article here introduced three quick and simple ways to help you transfer music from old iPhone 7/7Plus/6s/6/5s/5 to new iPhone 8.

Way 1: Transfer music from old iPhone to new iPhone 8/8 Plus via iTunes

This way contains two big steps, one is to make a backup of your previous iOS device via iTunes and the other is to restore the backup to your new iPhone 8/8 Plus.

  3. 2. Restore the backup to your new iPhone 8/8 Plus. Connect your new iPhone to the same computer. Open iTunes on your computer and select your device. Select Restore Backup and make sure that you choose the correct backup.
  4. make a backup via itunes
Note: If you have important data on the new iPhone 8/8 Plus and want to save them, please back up the data on the new iPhone 8/ 8 Plus before restoring the new device with the backup from the old one as the restore will erase all the data on the new phone and become unrecoverable.
