How to Transfer Your Spotify Playlists to Apple Music (or iTunes)

This short guide will show you how to quickly and easily transfer your playlists from Spotify to Apple Music.

Best of all – you don’t need to sign up for anything or download/install any software! Using the free service TuneMyMusic, you can copy the playlists you’ve created in Spotify over to the Apple Music app (and/or iTunes). Here’s how –

    Please note: even though the screenshots used in this guide are from a Mac, the entire process is identical whether you’re using Windows, Linux or macOS.

  1. Head over to the TuneMyMusic home page (link opens in a new tab/window) and click the big Let’s Start button.

  27. Scroll through the playlist until you find the missing song(s). These tracks either aren’t available on Apple Music or TuneMyMusic wasn’t able to locate/identify them.
