Instructions for downloading audio files to Apple® devices
Warning: Due to iTunes® licensing limitations, iPhone® and iPad® users must download audio files to a desktop computer first and then sync with their mobile device. Please follow the instructions below to upload non-iTunes audio files to iPhones®, iPads® and Apple® devices.
First Plug your iPhone® or iPad® into your desktop computer.
Apple® device users will need to download their audio file to a desktop computer. The file will be downloaded in .ZIP format.
.ZIP files need to opened or "extracted". On Apple® computers you can double click on the file or right click to open with the default "Archive Utility". On PC computers right click and select "Extract All".
After opening or "extracting" the audio files contained within the .ZIP folder, they should be visible as shown.
Open the iTunes® program on your Apple® or PC computer. Once you have opened iTunes®, click on the "My Music" tab. You will need to drag the files you just extracted into the "My Music" tab within iTunes®.
Select all of the files from the extracted folder and drag them into the "My Music" section of iTunes®
Now that the audio files have been dragged into the "My Music" section of iTunes®, click on the Device Icon to access your mobile device.
Now you will need to "Sync" your mobile device to access the audio files that were dragged into iTunes®. Click on the "Sync" button as shown. This may take a couple moments.
After the Sync is complete, navigate to the "Music" app on your mobile device.
All your downloaded and synced audio files should now be shown as "songs" on your mobile device.
