Copy my iTunes music to my phone
Feeling attached to your iTunes collection? Don't worry—you can bring it along to your Windows Phone. If you have a PC running Windows 8 or Windows 7 or you have a Mac, you can copy your iTunes music to your phone using the Windows Phone app for desktop. If you're using Windows Vista or Windows XP, you can move your music using Windows Explorer.
Whether you use the Windows Phone app for desktop or Windows Explorer, you'll only be able to copy music files that aren't protected with digital rights management (DRM).
If you have a PC running Windows 8 or Windows 7
The Windows Phone app for desktop can look for music in either your Windows Libraries or your iTunes library. All you need to do is change one setting to start syncing your iTunes music with your phone.
To use your iTunes library in Windows Phone app for desktop
In the Windows Phone app for desktop, click Settings.
Under Sync music, videos, and more from, select iTunes.
If you have a PC running Windows Vista or Windows XP
Windows Explorer (called File Explorer in some versions of Windows) allows you to copy and paste or drag and drop files between the Music folder on your phone and the iTunes library folder on your PC.
For more information about using Windows Explorer to move files, see Sync music, ringtones, and podcasts using my computer.
