How to Add Music and iTunes Music Library to Your OnePlus 9 Pro

If you've just recently switched to the OnePlus 9/9 Pro after using an iPhone, there might be a problem that you want to import your iTunes music library to your new OnePlus.

In this article, we'll teach you how to import music to your OnePlus 9 smartphone including the iTunes music library.

Option 1: Transfer Music from iTunes Library to OnePlus 9

One way to import your iTunes music library to an Android device is to copy the music to your new Android smartphone manually. And the disadvantage of this way is obviously -- the library on your Android device will not stay in sync with the iTunes library, meaning that when you purchase new songs in iTunes, you'll have to repeat the process. Furthermore, depending on the OS of your machine, some drivers might need to be installed as well.

And the simplest way is to use a data-transfer tool to sync with your iTunes music easily. And this tool is Syncios Data Transfer. It supports iTunes backup, downloading iTunes Library, transferring data from phone to phone, etc. The process is incredibly simple, as following the steps below.

What can Syncios Data Transfer do for you:

  • Sync media files from iTunes Library to iOS or Android devices.
  • Restore iTunes/iCloud backup to iOS or Android mobile phones.
  • Transfer files between Android and iOS, including contacts, photos, music, SMS, and more.
