MacOS Sierra  has a completely new design and tons of new features that will not leave people from a desire to upgrade. It sure looks more like the breakthrough design of iOS 10 that was introduced by Jonathan Ive. It looks more futuristic and simply better (strictly an opinion from Softorino). MacOS Sierra is now a better add-on to your new iPhone 7 with incredibly smooth interplay.

And Windows 10, if installed on the proper machine with nice specs, it will be super-accurate, quick and exciting to use. It includes a ton of big upgrades when it comes to security, boot time and battery life efficiency. But, it's probably still works the best if you have a touch screen.

To fully enjoy the brand-new technology from ‘Apple’, your audiophile side should also enjoy this. But…Apple didn’t want to implement any improvements on supporting new formats such as FLAC, MKV or AVI. Therefor, I will point out a tool that takes care of this. It makes it even more easier than iTunes try to make it for syncing your media with devices.

Here are 3 steps that will guide you on How to convert Flac to MP3 on Mac or Windows for iPhone 7.

*FYI – What the hell is FLAC music?

.FLAC a.k.a High-res digital music is a file format for who's who want more quality from their music. I can’t blame them, it really does make a difference with the right equipment. They use a lot more space when storing but provide better quality than .mp3.

Step 1. Download WALTR (it’s free btw) and install it.

Opens in a new tab

Open the downloaded .dmg file and drag file into the Applications folder as prompt. If you're on Windows, simply download the .exe file and finish the installation.

In Conclusion

Before reading this article, to play FLAC files, you had no other choice but to put them into a 3rd party app on your iPhone or iPod using a 3rd party app. This wasn’t so convenient, right? Waltr brings a way to put FLAC music to iPhone’s native music app without any complicated 3rd party converters or sync processes.

According to Softorino's founder Sergei Kudryashov, WALTR is the only app that allows users to transfer Apple’s unsupported formats directly into iPads & iPhones without iTunes and access them straight from native Videos and Music apps. Let’s drop all the advertising and marketing BS… I can guarantee that there is no legit app that is even close to WALTR.
