View Full Version : Please help me with my iTunes library!

02-25-2016, 04:58 PM
I recently re-ripped all of my cd's in Apple lossless to my MBPr's portable ssd, it was previously in lossy format mostly 128kbps. My library now takes up 102GB on my portable ssd. When I sync my iPhone to iTunes and send all of my music over to my phone it only takes up 44.6GB. Why is there such a difference in size of the exact same library. Dose iTunes compress my music to a different format to go on my iPhone?

Thank you for your response, I hope my question makes sense.

Check the music which is on your iPhone. Are they all in MP3 format? If they are, that would be the difference.

How do I check the format of the songs on my iPhone?
