Paid content is not for everyone, and downloading audio files for free on devices running ios is relatively difficult.
File system is not here, which means, compositions cannot simply be moved from a computer without third-party applications, as if on a flash drive. However, if you thoroughly understand, how to download music on iphone, in the future, the process will reach automatism and will not cause questions and inconveniences.
In addition to the well-known media player iTunes, there are many other applications and their developers, offering convenient work with compositions.
It is worth noting, that truly satisfactory functionality is uncommon. App Store is full of programs with the ability to download audio directly from social networks, but in practice people are often convinced, that functions from the description are not available. To see all the cons, it is enough to first read the reviews of those, who have already managed to use the development.
Downloading music to iPhone using computer and iTunes
For this we need the downloaded media player iTunes, which is designed to organize files, as well as synchronization with other devices (which is especially convenient in the absence of the Internet). Besides, it provides the possibility of listening to Internet radio and audio books.

On gadgets running ios, the program is already in the standard package of installations.

iTools instead of iTunes, more convenient and faster
Thanks to the third-party program iTools, which is positioning itself as an analogue of iTunes, you can save music files from your computer without synchronization. Besides, This handy file manager is made without unnecessary lotions and puts the songs directly into the memory of the device, in the app «Music».

What to do, if there is no cloud storage? Everything is simple: you need to install it and register an account. We will need it not only for downloading music, but also for quick file sharing between own and others devices.
