GarageBand for Mac: Share a project to GarageBand for iOS

Share a project to GarageBand for iOS

You can share a special GarageBand for iOS-compatible version of your GarageBand project to iCloud. The project appears in the GarageBand My Songs browser on your iOS device as a new song with a single track containing a mix of the entire GarageBand project. You can add, edit, and arrange new tracks in GarageBand for iOS, then share the updated song back to iCloud. When you reopen the project in GarageBand, the new tracks are added to the original project. If the reopened song contains a Remix FX track, the Remix FX appears as automation on the Master track.

In the GarageBand for iOS app, you can also share the project as a ringtone to your iOS device. For more information, refer to GarageBand Help on your iOS device.

Note: Sharing a project to GarageBand for iOS requires an active Internet connection and iCloud login.
