Apple Music has such a wide selection of music that you’d be hard-pressed to find anything it doesn’t have. However, if you have your own paid music files, you can upload them to your Apple Music app to play them. This can be useful if some songs on Apple Music are unavailable due to regional licensing restrictions. Here’s how to upload and add your music to Apple Music.
How to Upload and Add Your Music to Apple Music (Windows and Mac)
If you have a Mac, you need to open the Music app. If you have a Windows PC, you will need iTunes. Both apps are almost identical in terms of menus and download functions. So, for the sake of simplicity, we’ll show you how to do it on the Mac Music app. You will be able to track if you use iTunes.
In the top menu, go to File > Import.
Navigate to the music folder located on your computer. Click on To open to begin the import process. Remember that you can only import MP3 and M4A files. Other music formats such as FLAC are currently not supported.
The music will now start downloading to your Music app or iTunes. Once done, you will see it by clicking on Recently Added or by searching for the artist/album.
Note that the music will have been copied in your Music or iTunes app. Therefore, these copies will now be in the subfolder Media of your file Music. So you can delete or move the original files you downloaded, otherwise you will have two sets of the same music.
