    I tried to delete songs on my iPhone4 via iTunes but when I right click no menu opens and pushing the delete button on the keyboard doesn't do anything as well :confused:

    Did you set iTunes to sync devices automatically?
    If so, uncheck it in Preferences>Devices and you should be able to manage your iOS device library once connected.

    Nope, still can't delete it. I don't get it why iTunes is so much more difficult to mangae on OSX than Windows??

    If you have your iPhone plugged in, select manually manage music. That way, you should be able to delete music.

    In the iOS Device menu (once plugged in)

    Under Summary > Options
    Check "Manually manage music and videos"​

    When I do that it wants to erase and sync?? How can I apply without erasing anything?

    Interesting

    I do not remember it ever asking me that :confused: (maybe it's the newer version of iTunes' fault)

    Can you post a screen?
