How can I download the songs I've purchased to my iPhone or iPad?

You must first purchase and download the songs you want to your computer. You can't download the songs directly to your iPhone or iPad.

After downloading, please follow these steps:

  1. Connect your device to your computer and open iTunes.
  2. Add the songs you've purchased to your iTunes library (you can also drag & drop the songs onto the iTunes window).
  3. Select your iPhone or iPad from the devices list and under "Settings" select "Music".
  4. Make sure the "Sync Music" box is checked, or that your song is in a selected playlist being synchronized to your device.
  5. Click on "Sync" or "Synchronize" at the bottom of the window to synchronize the songs to your device.

Once completed, the songs you've transferred should be in the Music app on your device. Feel free to visit this official Apple tutorial on how to synchronize your data with your device to learn more.
