“I click on my iPhone device bottom and takes me to the summary page. I then go to the "On This iPhone" tab to see my music library on my phone. I can't seem to organize my songs by title, artist, and or album. Also I can't delete songs either? Why can't I do this? Someone please help me.”

It's super frustrating when iTunes won't let you delete songs from iPhone SE/6s/6s Plus/6/6Plus/5s/5c/5/4S so as to make space for new songs you want to download.

Why iTunes Won’t Let Me Delete Songs from iPhone?

This is likely because iTunes is automatically syncing your music.

Go to the Summary tab and check "Sync only Checked Songs and Videos." Then go to the Music tab and select "Sync Music" and "Entire Music Library". Then exit the iPhone section and go to your main music list on iTunes. From there, check off only the songs you want to sync. Then sync your iPhone.

Also, on the iPhone, to delete a song, go to your Songs list and swipe left or right on a song's title. A Delete button should appear - press that. As long as the song is checked in iTunes, though, it will come back the next time you sync.
