As a fellow music lover who recently made the transition, I understand the excitement and the desire to preserve your cherished playlists. Although there's no direct transfer option, fear not! I've discovered a perfection solution.

Can I transfer from Tidal to Apple Music?

Switching from Tidal to Apple Music is easy. For starters you can choose to manually recreate your Tidal playlists in Apple Music platform, including Apple Music web player, Apple Music app for iOS, iPadOS, Mac or iTunes app for PC.

If you prefer an automatic way, there are third-party apps and services that can help you with the process. One such service is called "ViWizard Tidal Music Converter", which allows you to transfer your downloads of favorite tracks, playlists, albums, and artists and import them to various music streaming platforms, such as Spotify and Apple Music.

Way 1. Transfer Tidal Collection to Apple Music/iTunes with ViWizard

The best way to transfer your Tidal music to Apple Music is by downloading the desired content into transferrable music files. Apple Music allows you to put your files to the Apple Music app on your computer and sync them as downloaded music to the app on your mobile phone. With ViWizard, you can download music originally from Tidal's music catalog into a compatible audio format with Apple Music, including MP3, WAV, and AAC. Even you don't have Apple Music subscription, you can still listen to your Tidal downloads on Apple Music offline.

ViWizard Tidal Music Converter is the best Tidal to Apple Music converter that helps download any music track from the Tidal desktop app. Even you don't have a Tidal subscription, you gain the ability to download your favorite track into actual music files. During the conversion, metadata of the tracks including artists, title, album and more will be embedded to the downloaded Tidal music, which helps music management later in your Apple Music library. And the best part is that ViWizard preserves lossless audio for a seamless listening experience.
