My dad bought me ed Sheeran new album on his iTunes so now we want to get it on my iPad. I have my own Apple ID account but I haven't bought any music.

How can I download the album my Dad bought to my iPad without deleting anything on it?


I think you can download it on your computer, then sync with iTunes your music by activating Manually manage music and videos on your device's options.

That will allow you to just drag and drop music to your device without deleting anything on it.

  • Will this work even if OP's dad purchased the music on their iTunes account? I haven't tried this so I don't know if you can purchase music and then give the song to someone else who uses a different Apple ID. – fsb Mar 7 '17 at 22:04
  • So doing this won't erase any data on my iPad even though it's a different device and iTunes apples id? – Izabella.w Mar 8 '17 at 7:34
