When trying to download songs from iTunes to my iPhone, a message pops up saying I have to delete and sync. Will this delete all my photos, contacts, and apps from my phone? Or just the music part of my iPhone?

Go to the iTunes preferences then the devices tab and tick the box about automatic syncing.

  • How does this prevent the "Delete and sync" warning from appearing?
