How to Transfer iTunes Music to Galaxy S9

In this quick guide, we will show you how to transfer iTunes music to your Galaxy S9. So whether you have just migrated from iPhone or used iTunes, you can still get all your music on Android. There are a few different ways to transfer so you don’t leave your entire Apple music collection behind.

Samsung’s new phones have a lot to offer. Galaxy S9+ has big screens or dual cameras as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack. Apple has abandoned headphone jacks and users are not happy about it. This is why some iPhone users are switching from iPhone to Android.

Fortunately, there are many different ways to transfer all your iTunes music. You can move it directly from your old iPhone to the Galaxy S9 or copy it from a computer. We’ll explain them all in detail so you can continue to enjoy your music.

How to Transfer iTunes Music to Galaxy S9

The first and easiest way to get your iTunes on the Galaxy S9 is to copy it from your old phone. If you’ve made the switch from iPhone, Samsung has an easy-to-use tool that does all the work for you. In fact, Samsung’s “SmartSwitch” app will stream your entire phone, some apps, text messages, call logs and all your music. It is an all-in-one solution. We’ll start with that, then share a few one-click solutions to make the transition easier than ever.

Samsung’s tool comes pre-installed on your Galaxy S9, then you just need it for your PC or Mac. Download Samsung SmartSwitch or use a USB cable to transfer everything from phone to phone. It works great either way.

Connect an iPhone Lightning cable to the iPhone and the USB end to the Samsung dongle that came with the Galaxy S9. This little dongle (pictured below) is what makes it work. Then find and launch the SmartSwitch app. Follow Samsung How to use SmartSwitch for more details.

Follow the onscreen prompts and it will transfer your entire phone and iTunes library in about 30 minutes. Give or take a few minutes depending on how much music you have. With 64GB of storage on the Galaxy S9, you should be able to take all your music with you. Or add it to a microSD card.

Alternatively, download SmartSwitch for your computer and use it to drag and drop music from your computer to the Galaxy S9. If you don’t have all of your music on your iPhone, this also works directly from iTunes on your computer.

Transfer with Drag and Drop Method

Personally, drag and drop is the easiest way to get things done. Not to mention that you can control what can and cannot be transferred to your new phone. This is basically connecting your phone to the computer and then manually dragging and dropping the music onto the Galaxy S9.

Plug your phone into the computer with the included cable or microSD card, then drag any songs, albums or collections to a new folder. You can call it Music or iTunes Music. This gets everything moving at once and is extremely simple. Then all your music will be on the S9 or an SD card that you can throw away and take with you on your next upgrade. Here’s where to find your music on the computer.

Connect your phone using the included USB to USB Type-C cable and get started.

iTunes Locations

Once you find your iTunes music folder, you’ll want to open it and have it handy on the desktop. Now connect the Galaxy S9 to your computer via USB or insert an SD card. You may need to pull down the notification bar on your phone and select USB options to turn on Media Transfer Protocol (MTP). This allows the phone and computer to talk to each other.

If you have a Mac, download Android File Transfer program. Install it, then plug your phone in with the USB Cable and you will see something like the image below. Find or create a music folder and get started.

Now you’ve left any folder on your desktop or our first set of instructions and or above in the Android File Transfer window. Basically, you are dragging entire iTunes or specific folders onto your Galaxy S9.

If you don’t have enough space, use a microSD card from our recommended list above. When the transfer is complete, unplug your phone and enjoy the music with one of the many music player apps for Android.

iTunes to Android Transfer Tool

Then you can use one of the various tools to transfer iTunes for you. Those who do not want to explore files and folders can use Galaxy Transfer from iTunes to Android. This is a free tool that you can download on Windows or Mac that allows you to transfer your stuff easily. It’s a very useful and powerful tool, but we’re focusing on music and iTunes here.

Install iTunes to Android Transfer on your PC or Mac and open the program. It will open iTunes at the same time, basically making the process even easier. Next, connect your Galaxy S9 to the computer and follow the onscreen instructions. There are two options you can choose: “” and “”.

Import iTunes to Google Play Music

And finally, you can use our recommended Google Play Music. This is one of the best options as you can stream your music from the cloud or add it to your phone manually. Both options work great with Google’s music status. You can quickly transfer everything over WiFi or upload iTunes music to Google cloud. Google Play Music also allows you to store up to 50,000 songs in the cloud absolutely free.

To start Google Play Music in a web browser on the computer. Tap the three lines in the top left and scroll down to the “upload music” option. From here you will be prompted to download Music Manager. This is the tool you need.

Sign in to your Gmail account, install Music Manager and follow the onscreen instructions. It then loads everything from iTunes to Google Play Music and you can easily access them on your Galaxy S9. Google’s tool scans your computer and finds all the music and then instantly transfers your entire collection. To check your installation settings, go to.

Other details

In closing, make sure you know how you want to listen to your music and have access to your music before you begin. All of our methods above physically place your iTunes music on the Galaxy S9. In this way, you can listen to music whenever you want. However, if you use Google Music, it stores everything in the cloud. Meaning you will need a WiFi connection to listen to music or use your monthly data plan to stream your iTunes music.

Google Music also lets you download the entire collection to your phone so you can listen without internet. Keep this in mind as you move all of your songs. Personally, all my music is on a microSD card. This way I don’t waste space on my Galaxy S9 and I don’t need internet to listen anything. All are available 24/7.
