I have an iPhone 4S w/ iOS6.1 and iTunes 11.0.1. When trying to manage my music on my iPhone using iTunes, I can't seem to delete any of them. I'm not even given the option w/ right click, drag to trash or edit > delete. I have checked "manually manage", never had Music match on and only back up to my computer. I'm at a total loss! HELP!!! - Sarzdorf
I guess many of the new iPhone users may encounter the same problem like Sarzdorf’s. If there are not so many songs in iPhone, you can delete them one by one manually. But if you intend to remove a large number of songs to free up some space for new music, movies or apps, you’d better not delete them one by one because you will waste much time. Here I highly recommend iPhone Transfer. With it, the process of deleting music from iPhone is super easy.
