The newly launched iPhone 8 has attracted many buyers, especially Apple fans. Apple Music is one of the largest music streaming services, and most iPhone users would subscribe Apple Music for its high quality audio, videos, audiobooks resources. When Apple Music subscribers use new iPhone 8, they must need to transfer the Apple Music songs which have been saved on their former iPhone to the new iPhone 8. There are 2 other solutions which could help you transfer Apple Music songs to iPhone 8 easily.


Part 1. Transfer Apple Music Songs to iPhone 8 Through iCloud Music Library

The simplest method to transfer Apple Music songs to iPhone 8 is using iCloud Music Library. iCloud Music Library is great for Apple Music sharing, which means users could have access to the songs which is saved on different Apple devices with the same Apple ID.

Steps for getting Apple Music songs on new iPhone 8 with iCloud Music Library:

Step 1. Go to Settings > Music.

Step 2. Turn on iCloud Music Library.

Step 3. You can select to keep the songs on your new iPhone 8 or replace them when enabling iCloud Music Library.

Turn on iCloud Music Library

Note: iCloud Music Library is available for Apple Music subscribers, and make sure you have tapped on iCloud Music Library on your former devices.

Part 2. Transfer Apple Music Songs to iPhone 8 with TuneFab Apple Music Converter

The above solution has certain limitations. For example, when Apple Music Membership expired, you would fail to listen to Apple Music any more unless you re-subscribe for it. The Apple ID could only authorize Apple Music on up to 5 devices. When you use the same Apple ID on the sixth device, the Apple Music songs would be unplayable, either. In other word, if you have authorized your Apple ID on other 5 devices before you use your new iPhone 8, you would fail to adopt the first method to transfer your Apple Music songs to new iPhone 8.

Also, you can not transfer Apple Music songs directly since the DRM protection (Apple Inc has adopted DRM technology to protect all its digital contents, including audio, video files, and audiobooks) has prevented the Apple Music songs from being reused and replicated. You need to take use of a third-party program to help you get rid of DRM encryption. That is TuneFab Apple Music Converter.
