iPhone is a great portable device to play music, and it supports quite a lot of audio file types. But it can't handle Windows Media Audio (WMA) files as the WMA format is owned by Apple's biggest rival, Microsoft. If you want to play WMA on the iPhone, you have to use a professional tool to convert WMA to iPhone compatible formats. However, most of WMA files can be protected by DRM. All free converting tools like iTunes on the market fail to convert DRM-protected WMA to iPhone. So, you'd better use a powerful tool to convert any WMA file for smooth playback on iPhone.

Wondershare UniConverter (originally Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate) can be used as a great WMA player for iPhone. It can help you convert both DRM-free and DRM-protected WMA files to iPhone supported formats quickly and easily. That means that you can feel free to enjoy any WMA digital music on your iPhone with the help of this great WMA to iPhone converter.

Note: If you use a Mac, you can use the corresponding Mac version - Video Converter for Mac to get WMA to iPhone conversion done. It works quickly, easily, and powerfully. But note that the Mac version only converts unprotected WMA files to iPhone.
