How to Convert WMA Audio to iPhone

Apple’s iPhone is by far the most powerful tool when it comes to smart phones these days. This device has changed the entire dimensions of cell phones with its revolutionary features. Obviously music has become a vital part of every smart phone. Whether it comes to audio songs or videos, every mobile user would opt for a cell phone which can play the most types of formats without any trouble. iPhone has the ability to play audio files of almost all formats except Windows Media Audio (WMA) music files. Since WMA files are owned by Microsoft, Apple’s iPhone does not support this audio format in its operating system. However, Apple has compensated for it by including a converting option within iTunes. You can easily convert any WMA audio file to the format supported by iPhone via iTunes. It will not take much time but the conversion speed will depend on the size of the WMA file you desire to convert.

First of all, download ‘Windows Media Player 9’ from the internet and install it to your laptop. Apple demands this software to be installed on your laptop or PC before iTunes can convert the unprotected audio files.
