For many iPhone users, Apple Music is probably the first to choose. But, because of its global reach, Spotify is now bringing the top music streaming service not only to Android users, but also to iPhone users. iPhone users can now listen to Spotify songs either online or offline. However, offline listening is currently only available to premium subscribers. If you don't want to subscribe to get offline access to Spotify, what can you do? Don't worry, this article will help both Spotify Premium and Free users to download music from Spotify to iPhone freely.


Download Music from Spotify to iPhone in Batches Without Premium

Spotify offers limited service to its free users, which causes so much inconvenience for free users, like ad interruption between tracks, online listening only, and limited skips, etc.

The easiest ways for free users is to upgrade their account to Premium. If you don't want to, you might need some help from a third-party software. The reason that you can't download Spotify music directly to your iPhone is that these music files are DRM-protected, leading to the prohibition of unauthorized downloading. Thus, in the normal situation, you need a premium account to get authorized. But there are some approaches to crack DRM and download Spotify music without a Premium account. That is what TuneFab Spotify Music Converter does for the living.

It is a powerful tool to decrypt DRM so as to assist you in downloading Spotify music on your PC, then you can transfer the music to your iPhone. Sound complicated? No, just a couple of clickings are all it needs to convert.

Step 1. Install TuneFab Spotify Music Converter
