How to Send a Song on Your iPhone

Updated February 21, 2017

The iPhone is a smart phone that offers many advanced multimedia capabilities that allow you to play, download and send songs right on your phone. If you have an iPhone with active Bluetooth connectivity, use it to send songs and other media from your iPhone to any other Bluetooth-enabled device, such as a cell phone, computer or PDA. Using Bluetooth to send songs from your iPhone eliminates the need for Internet access, cables or third-party apps.

Turn off the iPhone's Bluetooth headset.

Press and hold the button on the iPhone's Bluetooth headset until you hear a tone and five beeps. This turns the headset on and makes it discoverable.

Select a Bluetooth-enabled device you want to send the song to and turn on its Bluetooth.

Allow the Bluetooth-enabled device to search for other Bluetooth devices.

Select "iPhone Bluetooth Headset" from the "Devices Found" menu on the Bluetooth-enabled device, then enter the iPhone's four-digit access PIN code.

Select "Menu" from the Bluetooth utility on the iPhone, then click on the "Media" option.

Click on the "Music" option, then click on "Tracks" to highlight and select the song you want to send from the iPhone.

Select the "Options" tab, then click on "Send" and choose the "Via Bluetooth" option.

Wait for the iPhone to locate the Bluetooth-enabled device, then select that device from the iPhone's "Devices Found" menu.

Accept the song on the Bluetooth-enabled device and wait for the iPhone to send the song.


The default four-digit access PIN code to connect Bluetooth devices is 0000. The iPhone must be within 33 feet of the other Bluetooth-enabled device to which you are sending the song.
