When we’re using iPhone/iPad/iPod/iTUnes to organize our music files, we’ll come up with the problems of lacking information of the music albums. Of course, if the users purchase songs in iTunes Store, they will probably get the complete album information of the songs, including album artwork, artist name, genre, etc. If the users rip songs from CDs or get songs from other ways, they may lack the album info especially album artwork, which might be the most annoying part for people to add manually. The following post will introduce several helpful methods for people to add album artwork to iPhone/iPad/iPod. These methods work with all iPhone/iPad/iPod modes, including iPhone 6s/6s Plus.
