Switching from one popular music streaming service to another shouldn’t have to be a hassle, but it is if you want to transfer all your favorite music over. No popular service offers a built-in feature to export or import playlists, so if you want to move your favorite Apple Music playlists over to Spotify, you’ll have to use a third-party service.
Using SongShift for iOS and Soundiiz on Android, you can transfer your favorite Apple Music playlists over to Spotify without a hitch. Although the two applications differ in the transfer process, they both allow you to do the same thing. And the best thing of all, it won’t cost you a dime.

Transfer Apple Music Playlists to Spotify (iOS)
You can download SongShift on your iPhone for free from the iOS App Store. If you need more features, there’s a pro version for $4.99 that allows you to process multiple playlist transfers at a time, skip steps to make the transfer process faster, fix songs that are incorrectly or not matched, automatically update playlists, get rid of advertisements, and more. However, depending on how many playlists you have, the free version may be all you need.
