How to sync music from your Mac to your iPhone or iPad in macOS Catalina — Apple Support


Starting in MacOS Catalina, you can use the Finder
to sync music and playlists from your Mac
to your iOS device. Here’s how. If you’re
an Apple Music subscriber, your entire music library syncs across all your devices
automatically. For anything not in Apple Music,
you can sync with your Mac. To start synching your music
using the Finder, you’ll need to plug your device
into your Mac. Next, open a Finder window and click your device name
in the sidebar under Locations. Now, click the Music tab
at the top of this window and then click the check box
to sync music to your device. Here you can select
either your entire music library to sync to your device, or you can select specific
artists, albums, genres, or playlists. We’ll select a few playlists. ♪ Music playing ♪ Next, click Apply. If you’ve done this
at least once already, this button
will say Sync instead. If you have any movies,
TV shows, podcasts, audiobooks, or other files on your Mac that you want to transfer
to your iOS device, follow this same process. Now you’ve got your
favorite music on your Mac and your iOS device too. For more helpful Mac tips, subscribe to
the Apple Support channel, or click another video
