Home Sharing

Home Sharing lets you play music, movies, and TV shows on iPhone from the iTunes library
on your Mac or PC. iPhone and your computer must be on the same Wi-Fi network. On your
computer, iTunes must be open, with Home Sharing turned on and logged in using the same
Apple ID as Home Sharing on iPhone.

Note: Home Sharing requires iTunes 10.2 or later, available at www.itunes.com/download.
Bonus content, such as digital booklets and iTunes Extras, can’t be shared.

Play music from your iTunes library on iPhone:


In iTunes on your computer, choose Advanced > Turn On Home Sharing.


Log in, then click Create Home Share.


On iPhone, go to Settings > Music, then log in to Home Sharing using the same Apple ID

and password.


In Music, tap More, then tap Shared and choose your computer’s library.

Return to content on iPhone
