The Apple Watch is a fantastic wristwatch for a lot of reasons, and one of them is the fact that it does a decent job of allowing you carry about music. The Apple Watch Series 8, SE, and the newest Apple Watch Ultra can all be used to manage the music being played on your iPhone and to store additional songs. You can also use your playlists to play music from popular apps including Apple Music, Spotify, or Deezer while leaving your iPhone at home.
If you’re ready to listen to your personal music or carefully curated Spotify playlists while on the go but are unsure of how to proceed or what you’ll need, read on.
What to Know Before You Begin
Before you decide to put songs on your Apple Watch, there are a few things you should know, Zrst. The first issue is that not every one Apple Watches have the identical amount of storage to capture such noises. The most recent Series 8, SE (second generation), and Ultra feature 32GB of internal storage, but a previous Apple Watch Series 4 has 16GB. Another thing to check is that your iPhone and Apple Watch are both up to date, ideally to iOS 16 and watchOS 9, respectively.
Ways to Add Songs From iTunes to The Apple Watch

The first step is to go to your iPhone’s home screen and press to activate the Watch app. Next, make sure you’re in the Watch app’s My Watch area, then scroll toward Music and press.
On the following screen, you should notice two options: you may add purchased media to your Apple Watch and you can choose Add Music. Tap the Add Music button to open your music library and browse by artist, album, genre, compilation, or composer. Below that is a list of recently added music. When you find a song or album you would like to add, click the plus icon to sync it over.
How to Pay Attention

Once synced, open the Music application on your Apple Watch, scroll through Library, then Downloaded, and look for the freshly downloaded music underneath Playlists, Artists, Albums, or Songs.
