Q: Can't add songs from my iTunes to my phone!

I am trying to add songs from my iTunes onto my iPhone, but it isn't working.
I select the songs I want and drag them to my iPhone icon and try dropping them into it, but it isn't working.
I tried on another computer and had the same problem so it has to be something to do with my phone.
I have an iPhone 7. Please help?!?

Example 6. Transfer Music from Computer to iPhone with iPhone Transfer


Example 1. Check if you have updated to the latest iTunes




Example 2. Check the available space of your iPhone

Generally, Music may take up large space, and you can't move songs from iTunes to iPhone if you don't have enough space for all the songs. So, you should check how much space is left on your iPhone.

Just go to Settings > General > Usage > Storage. Under Storage you will see how much space you have left on your device, then if you don't have enough space, you should delete some items to free up space.



Example 3. Check the location of your songs

iTunes does not indicate which songs it cannot find until you select them, so you need to check if the songs on your iTunes library have same folder location as before.

Example 4. See if your music are unchecked

Go to the Music tab - is "Entire music library" selected? If so, go to Music (in your iTunes library), click on the check mark next to the "Name" column header (to sort by checked music) and scroll to the bottom.



Tips: Any unchecked music won't sync.

Example 5. Add songs to a playlist before sync

Put your songs into a playlist and then sync up that playlist to your iPhone, you can select all or just some items to sync up in your iPhone config.



Example 6. Transfer Music from Computer to iPhone with iPhone Transfer
