Dave and the team discuss Adobe Firefly, floppy disks in the wild, smart shopping, and more.
Joe in Berkley, Michigan and asked: I have an Apple iPhone 11 Pro max and I’m trying to access iTunes off my computer. I downloaded a lot of my different discs – music – and I’m trying to put it on my iPhone. I’m not successful in doing that and I’m not sure what’s happening. I can see my iPhone in iTunes but it has no location where I can pull the information over.
Joe, this question feels like a throwback to 2014! No one seems to sync their music to their phones anymore. Everyone seems to be using some service like Apple Music, Spotify, YouTube Music, etc.
If you can see your iPhone in iTunes, youre 99% of the way there.
There should be a little icon for your iPhone that you can click on. That should let you access a menu that will show you Music, TV Shows, Podcasts, etc.
Click on Music and youll have the option to sync your entire library or select specific content like playlists or songs.
Depending on what you want to do make youre choice there, click on Sync, and wait for it to be done.
If youre syncing over a USB cable, it may help to know that you can also sync over WiFi, so if you want to add or remove a song later on you can do it without having to physically connect the phone to your computer.
