Spotify recently found itself caught in a controversy around misinformation being broadcast during the Spotify-exclusive Joe Rogan Experience podcast. Whether you’re Team Neil or are just looking for a change, here’s how to transfer your Spotify playlists over to Apple Music on an iPhone.
While Spotify and Apple Music are priced quite similarly at £9.99/month for individuals and with just a few pounds between the two when it comes to family and student plans, Apple Music has the benefit of being part of Apple’s One subscription plan.
Apple One allows you to get Apple Music, Apple TV Plus, Apple Arcade and iCloud Plus all wrapped up in one plan for just £14.95/month, or with Apple News Plus and Apple Fitness Plus for £29.95/month, for a saving of £7.50 to £22/month depending on which tier you opt for.
This is just one more reason you may be tempted to jump ship from Spotify and head over to Apple Music.
Whatever your excuse, here’s how to transfer your playlists from Spotify to Apple Music without having to enter the tracks again manually, one-by-one.
