There are a few different ways to transfer music from one Mac to another, and the method you choose will depend on how much music you want to transfer and whether or not you want to keep your existing music library on both Macs. If you just want to transfer a few songs or playlists, you can use iTunes Home Sharing; if you want to transfer your entire music library, you can use an external hard drive or Apple’s iCloud Music Library; and if you just want to keep your music library synchronized between two Macs, you can use iTunes Match.
Connecting your Macs
If you want to transfer music from one Mac to another, you can do so by connecting the two computers and using the built-in Apple File Sharing feature. Here’s how:
1. Make sure both Macs are connected to the same network.
2. On the Mac that has the music you want to transfer, open the Music app and select Preferences from the menu bar.
3. In the resulting window, click the Sharing tab and then check the box next to “Share my music with other computers on my network.”
4. On the other Mac, open iTunes and select Preferences from the menu bar.
5. Click on the Sharing tab and then check the box next to “Look for shared music.”
Your music should now be accessible on both computers!
iCloud is a cloud storage and cloud computing service from Apple Inc. launched on October 12, 2011. As of February 2016, the service had 782 million users. The service provides a platform to store data such as documents, photos, and music on remote servers for download to iOS, macOS or Windows devices, to share and send data to other users, and to manage one’s Apple devices if lost or stolen.
Using iCloud is the easiest way to transfer music from Mac to Mac. With iCloud, you can sync your music library across all of your devices. To do this, you need to have iCloud Music Library enabled on both Macs. Once you’ve done that, any music that you add to your library on one Mac will automatically be added to your library on the other Mac.
If you’re using iTunes, you can use the Home Sharing feature to transfer files between two Mac computers that are on the same network. First, make sure that Home Sharing is turned on for both computers:
1. Open iTunes.
2. Go to the Preferences menu.
3. Click on the Sharing tab.
4. Check the box next to “Share my library on my local network.”
5. Click the “OK” button.
Once Home Sharing is enabled, you can now transfer files between your two Macs:
1. On the first Mac, select the file (or files) that you want to transfer in iTunes.
2. Right-click on the selected file (or files) and choose “Share.”
3. In the window that appears, select the second Mac from the drop-down menu next to “To:”
4. Click the “Share” button.
5. On the second Mac, open iTunes and go to the “Shared” section of your library.
6. Select the file (or files) that you want to transfer and click the “Import” button
Using a USB drive
One of the quickest and easiest ways to transfer music from one Mac to another is by using a USB drive. Simply connect the USB drive to your first Mac and copy over your music files. Then, connect the USB drive to your second Mac and copy the files onto that computer.
Using an external hard drive
One of the easiest ways to transfer music from one Mac to another is to use an external hard drive. Simply connect the hard drive to your old Mac and copy your music files onto it. Then, connect the hard drive to your new Mac and copy the files from the hard drive onto your new computer.
Using a cloud storage service
One of the easiest ways to transfer music from Mac to Mac is by using a cloud storage service. This will allow you to quickly and easily upload your music files to the cloud, and then download them onto your new Mac.
There are a number of different cloud storage services available, but we recommend using iCloud Drive or Google Drive. Both of these services offer free plans with plenty of storage space for music files, and they are very easy to use.
To transfer your music using iCloud Drive, first open the iCloud Drive app on your old Mac. Then, drag and drop your music files into the app window. Once the files have been uploaded, open the iCloud Drive app on your new Mac and download the files.
To transfer your music using Google Drive, first open the Google Drive app on your old Mac. Then, click on the “My Drive” tab and drag and drop your music files into the main window. Once the files have been uploaded, open the Google Drive app on your new Mac and download the files.
