Get your answer: how to transfer music to iPhone without iTunes


Just imagine – your beloved band has released a new song, and you obviously want to check it out immediately in High Quality not to ruin the first impression.  Of course, you might try to experience a song which is easily available in hideous 128 kbps but there are some guys from Vice Media can tell you why it would be a crime. 

It happened to me in 2012 with Sigur Ros Valtari.  Having found an HQ song on the Internet, you might encounter with some bad news: iTunes does not support any High Definition formats apart from .alac, and even it may create some inconveniences trying to transfer music to iPhone manually. 

Whether you use online streaming services like Google Music, Spotify, etc. or buy songs from iTunes store, you cannot fully hear and understand what message artists wanted to deliver to their audience. 

Luckily, there is a solution, and today I will tell you how to have all you High-Quality track on your phone without even opening iTunes.


Spoiler ahead: it’s incredibly easy.


How to transfer music to iPhone using VOX Music Player? No iTunes needed.

If you don’t know what VOX is, let me tell you about it.

VOX is a relatively new music player which allows users to listen to high-quality music, store thousands of songs on a cloud (which automatically synchronizes with your phone) and more great options. 

It is a perfect solution for real audiophiles and ones who can’t stand using iTunes.

There are so many Apps for lossless music. Why VOX Player?

VOX Player makes it easy to transfer music to computer – there is no better option if your aim is to listen to HQ quality and not use iTunes. User-friendly interface won’t make you confused in the App since there’s no profile customization, which can be a real pain in the ass like it happens when signing up for Apple Music. Just listen and enjoy.

If you expect to be out of service don’t worry, any tracks stored in Loop will stream OTA (wirelessly) when played, though you can download them at any time, just swipe to the left and choose Download.


In Conclusion 

Unfortunately, Apple made sure that you can’t play your FLACs (and other lossless formats) on any iPhone but some guys from Coppetrino Inc. decided it’s time it changed. As you can see it is a piece of cake when you crave to transfer music to iPhone without iTunes. It no longer matters what quality you prefer – VOX play all of them, and it is a terrific experience. 

Feel that this song needs more bass? No problem. With VOX built-in equalizer you can customize the sound, so it is to the most of your liking. 

So don’t waste your time, check VOX right now and enjoy the chills.
