“I got a lot of music downloaded on iTunes and my friend wanted me to share them with him and put those songs to his iPhone X. How am I supposed to do that?”

Usually the songs you download from iTunes have DRM protection on them which prevents you from playing them on other devices or with other audio players other than iTunes itself. It makes sharing music with other people kind of hard. But it’s not totally impossible. And if the one you want to share music with uses an iPhone, the sharing process would be a lot easier to manage. For people who want to share their iTunes music to iPhone X or other iOS devices, here are two different approaches.
