    I want to make sure I understand your question properly. The title says "delete songs from my iPhone" but your text implies that you are in fact trying to delete songs from your computer's iTunes (possibly looking at your connected iPhone's library?) since the iPhone has never had a "right click."

    So if you could clarify that it would be helpful. For the record, the standard delete method on the iPhone works in iTunes: go to the list of songs, swipe to the right on a specific song and the "Delete" button will come up. You then press that to delete.

    As chas_m asked, are you trying this in iTunes/Devices/.....iPhone in which case you can't do it? You can only un-sync by unchecking the Artist, Playlist, Album etc in the Sync Music pane, which is a summarised checklist of your Music Library.

    If you want to delete anything you need to be in iTunes/Library/Music, where you can right click/delete, but if all you want to do is take the title off your phone then it's overkill.

    Actually you can now delete songs directly from the phone.

    From either the songs, albums or artists collections, when you see a song you want to delete from the phone, swipe your finger over it left to right. That will bring up a delete option.

    Also if you're in iTunes, you can simply highlight the songs you want to remove and press the "delete" key on your keyboard.

    That's because the method was changed in iOS 7. You swipe from right to left.

    What problem? This was explained by chas. Swipe right to left. If you are talking songs with a cloud by them they aren't really on the phone so you can't swipe to get rid of them. (i am just grasping at straws here because i do not know what your problem is.)

    Explain what your problem is a little.
