How to Add Music to Google Drive using an iPhone

Because the iPhone does not follow the same procedures or processes as other smartphones, some people do think that using an iPhone requires some special knowledge or skill.

This is due to the difficulty in directly transferring files from an iPhone to Google Drive or another smartphone. Apple Music files are stored in the Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) cache format which prevents the music files from being moved and played on other programs.

You must convert Apple Music to Google Drive-compatible audio formats, such as MP3, WAV, and MPEG, to add your downloaded songs from the Apple Music Store.

Here are the steps to follow.

  • Download and install the Apple Music Converter from the Apple Store. Launch the app, then enter your Apple ID to log in.
  • To choose the MP3 output format for Google Drive, click the “setting” icon.
  • To view the songs, choose an album or playlist, then check the ones you wish to convert.
  • If you have the Google Drive app, open it by going to the app store. If not, you can sign in with your Google account by visiting the Google website at https://drive.google.com.
