Step 2: Launch the Documents 5 app, and switch to the built-in web browser by tapping the icon located on the bottom that looks similar to Safari.

Step 3: Go to Paste the video link, select the file format you want to save (it offers both audio and video formats), finally tap Start. It will then generate the download link for you.

Tip 1: If the website I give you above does not work for some reasons, Go to Google and search for “youtube to mp3”, you will find many websites that offer audio download tools.

Tip 2: Tap the star icon on the address bar to bookmark the website. Each time you want to download music from Youtube to your iPhone, just launch the app and go to this bookmark. It’s a lot more convenient.

Step 4: Once the download link has been generated, tap Download. You will be able to save the mp3 to your iPhone. You can also choose to save to Dropbox. After the mp3 file is downloaded successfully, you will find it in the Downloads folder of Documents 5.

2. How to download Youtube music to iPhone using your computer

In this part, I will show you some extensions/add-ons to install on your web browser so each time you want to download mp3 files from Youtube videos, it will take no effort. Once you’ve downloaded these files, you can sync them to your iPhone using iTunes or cloud storage services.


Google owns Chrome and YouTube, and the legality of an extension that enables a user to rip the audio off videos is questionable at best. You’re most likely not going to find one on the Play Store.

Some website offers these extensions in packed files and you can install them in developer mode on Chrome. But I recommend you not to do this as using these packages are not surely safe. They may contain suspicious files that can invade your device and your privacy without you realizing it.

The best solution is to go to the website that offers audio download tool. Do a quick search for “Youtube to mp3” on Google and you will find tons of them.


If you’re using Firefox, then the good news is you can install the add-on named Simple YouTube MP3 Button. After this add-on is installed, it will take care of the rest.
