iTunes Works Well to Add Music to iPhone? Not really!

iTunes is announced to be a versatile music organizer helping users to download, play songs and manage music contents in iTunes library. Everyone can manually copy specific songs to iPhone from computer while Apple Music or iTunes Match subscribers are offered the option to sync music automatically with enabled iCloud Music Library.

However, iTunes only allows users to add music to iPhone from a single iTunes Library so that it is impossible to sync music from a different computer. More than that, "iTunes won't sync music" error appears here and there.

- I have updated iOS 9.0.2 but the music is not syncing from my iTunes library. I added new music and deselected some music but the content on my phone does not change.
- Cannot sync entire playlist to iPhone. My playlist is 115 songs. When iPhone is plugged into computer, it says iPhone has 115 songs while it only lists 95 on iPhone. Got plenty of memory, all tracks are "checked".
- It won't work when I started syncing new music after updating iOS. Almost all songs disappeared. I have 16 left from my original 664 songs.

All above posts point out that iTunes is not really stable for music transfer. And, a little difficult operation and slow running speed drive users to seek for a third-party tool to sync music to iPhone more easily and conveniently.
