I have sent my favorite songs from my friend's iMac to my iPhone 6 but I cannot view the details of those songs, like artist, genre and album, how come?
Generally speaking, iTunes may be the first choice to accomplish transferring music to iOS devices, but it cannot allow you to sync some music not from iTunes, so it is dangerous to sync your iPhone 6 using iTunes. Some data may be erased if it syncs your iPhone 6 automatically. For completely coping songs including its artist, genre, playlist and album, iOS Transfer is what you're looking for at this moment.

Media is the largest kind of data supported by iOS Transfer, including music, movies, TV Shows, podcast, iTunes U and so on. Those media files can be sent from iMac/MacBook Air/MacBook Pro to iPhone/iPad/iPod with simple steps. What's more, some detailed information is also kept in transferring. For example, time, size artist, genre and album are saved on iPhone 6 when switching music from Mac to iPhone 6.
