Play music stored on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch

This article provides some ways you can play music stored on your iOS device to Sonos and some alternatives like storing your music on a computer or with a streaming service.

Keep my music on my iOS device

Apple AirPlay 2

AirPlay is our recommended method for playing music stored on your iOS device to Sonos. See our article on using AirPlay to learn which Sonos products support AirPlay and how to use AirPlay with Sonos.


You can play music files from your iOS device to a supported Sonos product using Bluetooth. Our Bluetooth article provides information on which Sonos products support Bluetooth audio.

Move my music to a streaming service or NAS drive

Streaming services

Some services allow you to upload and stream your music online. We support the following services that let you upload your own music. Note that some of these services require a premium subscription to work with Sonos.

  1. Apple Music
  2. YouTube Music
  3. Deezer
  4. Plex

See our article on adding music services to get started with using one of the services listed above.

NAS drive

If you have a network-attached storage (NAS) drive on your network, you can move or copy your tracks to the NAS and share them with your Sonos system. Once the NAS music share is set up, you can browse and play that music from the Sonos app on your iOS device. See our article on using a NAS drive with Sonos to get started.
