Asked by Kely Hoofer on 2020-12-16

I mostly use Apple technology, and as far as I understand that you can transfer music from a PC using <a href="">software</a> only. But mostly they are all paid. The question is, is there any other way, or do you still need to buy a subscription?

Personally, I use SFTP to move files between phone and server. I can imagine there are SFTP client for iPhone then install openssh-server in Ubuntu then connect as you expect. Use your Ubuntu username and password to authenticate

There is this too

I don't use Apple stuff myself. My Android phone shows as a USB HDD when I connect it. So much easier than Apple's idea

Yeah unfortunately Apple doesn't play well with others. Try the link but SFTP will definately work/. Transfer will go over WiFi too so you can walk around while the transfer takes place. If you port forward 22/TCP from your router to the same system then you will be able to securely access your files from anywhere you have an internet connection.

Alternatively you could sync using cloud storage or even setup an openCloud server if you wanted.

Alternatively, you can use ifuse command to mount an iPhone as a drive while it's plugged into your computer's USB port.

Yes, Apple is very user-friendly, but doesn't work very well with other systems. Of course, you can use online services with music, but if you upload music from your computer, you can try cloud services. On the other hand, has collected cash loans near you, so if necessary, you can simply replace your Android phone.

Can you help with this problem?
