How to Transfer Music from Old iPhone to iPhone X/iPhone 8 (Plus)

On a recent visit to my hometown, I decided to take a walk down memory lane. Getting together with a couple of my friends, we visited a few of our favourite hangouts from when we were kids.

When we came around the corner where we used to practice as a band, our love for music came to the fore. It had been a few years now, and although we tried to sing a song that we had composed together, it just didn’t cut it. We left after a good laugh, but that desire to hear our song burned deep within me. I knew that there had to be a copy somewhere and then I remembered that we had recorded it on my old iPhone.

Thankfully, I still had it lying around and much to my surprise it was still in a working condition. As I started browsing through my music collection, I realized there were some really good tracks still there.


I wondered if there was an easy way to transfer music from an old iPhone to iPhone 8 as I wanted to update my music collection with the tracks that I used to listen to earlier. A swift search told me that many people faced such a scenario where they wanted to bring their old music collection into their new phone.

Wondershare MobileTrans: A great Phone to Phone Transfer tool

I came upon this brilliant tool called Wondershare MobileTrans which would make the process of transferring music from my old iPhone to the iPhone X/iPhone 8 (Plus) much more convenient.

Wondershare is known for bringing many useful utilities into the market which make our lives much easier and the MobileTrans is no different. Whether you want to transfer music, pictures, contacts or videos from an old phone into a new one, MobileTrans is the tool for you.

In fact, I know of at least two people who have been pushing back a phone upgrade just because of the tediousness of having to transfer the data between the two devices. But with Wondershare MobileTrans, their excuses will no longer work!

In fact, I know of at least two people who have been pushing back a phone upgrade just because of the tediousness of having to transfer the data between the two devices. But with Wondershare MobileTrans, their excuses will no longer work!

Transferring music from an old iPhone to iPhone X/iPhone 8 (Plus) has never been easier. Just follow these steps:

  1. Download Wondershare MobileTrans Phone to Phone Transfer and install it on your computer
  2. Run the program, and you will see a number of options from which you must select the phone to phone transfer option.
  3. Connect your devices, and you must choose the old iPhone as the source and the iPhone X/iPhone 8 (Plus) as the destination. You can also flip between the two and make one the destination and the other the source if required.
  4. Select the kind of files you want to transfer. In this case, choose music and click on the start transfer button to initiate the transfer.

That is all that you need to do!

Please note that there is also an option to erase all data on the destination device which you must remember to uncheck if you want to keep the data on your iPhone X/iPhone 8 (Plus).

It is easy to go through the process of transferring data from an old iPhone to iPhone X/iPhone 8 (Plus) and it is fairly simple and easy.

th all the old pictures now available on my iPhone 8, I was very happy. Or at least as happy as the reminder that I have aged and also put on a little weight can allow me to be!


Transfer Music from Old iPhone to iPhone X/iPhone 8 (Plus) using AirDrop

There is another way to transfer music from an old iPhone to iPhone X/iPhone 8 (Plus) and that uses the AirDrop function on your device.

  1. Choose the music files you want to share from iPhone to iPhone X/iPhone 8 (Plus)
  2. Connect both the phones via Airdrop
  3. transfer music from iphone to iphone x

  4. Long press the file and select share file and choose AirDrop from the options and select the target phone
  5. share music from iphone to iphone x

  6. On the iPhone X/iPhone 8 (Plus), just select an app to open the received file and you are good to go
  7. sync music from iphone to iphone x

However, this method does not work if your music has been purchased on iStore as Apple is very strict on license sharing.

While Airdrop is no doubt faster and does not require a PC, I would still prefer MobileTrans to transfer music from old iPhone to iPhone X/iPhone 8 (Plus) - simply because it is more convenient and I do not have to select files individually.


Another major benefit is that MobileTrans works on a variety of platform while AirDrop is limited to just apple devices. And while the licensing policy of Apple is not something that I want to delve in here, I would just say that MobileTrans lets your moral guide you through the grey areas of licenses!


And while I had to transfer my music from an old iPhone to iPhone X/iPhone 8 (Plus), MobileTrans goes much beyond that. You can also transfer contacts, pictures, videos, etc. through it and it works across many OS be it iOS, Android, Symbian or Windows. It also supports devices from most of the top mobile manufacturers today like Apple, Samsung, LG, HTC, Motorola and others.


In my opinion, if you are in the mood to change your phone or get some data from an older device into the latest one, MobileTrans Phone Clone is the best solution for you. It is a simple, easy to use tool with many features and specialities.
