When I navigate to photos from my phone settings in iTunes, I am not able to select the photos.app from the "copy photos from" dropdown.

My Photo Library exist in the Pictures directory and it is set as a system photos library. My photo library is not corrupt. The access level is not restricted.

I have my iCloud photos option disabled. I am running Mojave 10.14.6

How do I sync my photos app library to my iPhone through iTunes?

itunes photo

  • Tip: When you can't sync, you can use the Image Capture app to manually copy photos and videos from any iDevice. Just connect your iDevice and open the app.

What I did to solve this problem is to reinstall my OS. I don't need to wipe my hard drive clean. The problem could be due to some corruption in the system files.
