Steps In Reclaiming Lost Music from iPhone or iPad
If you are housing a specific album on your iPhone or iPad but cannot find it, your first step is finding the album on iTunes or Music App. Then, check the library on your computer to see if the album is still there. You can browse through your albums or search for a specific one by name, artist, genre, or other criteria. If you can locate it, play the song for a few seconds to ensure all the tunes are intact.
Once you are done playing all the lost songs from iTunes or Music App, connect your Apple device to your Mac or MacBook, whichever you own for now. In macOS Catalina, open Finder and click the entry for your mobile device. Then click the icon for your iPhone or iPad. On the screen for your device, click the Music category and look for the missing album (PCMag reports).
Re-add Music To Your Apple Device
If you cannot find the album in iTunes or the Music App, the chances are that the album may still be in your collection, but it is hidden or otherwise not showing up in your library. To find it, open Finder and browse to your iTunes or music library and look for the missing album.
If you find it, open Music App and click File > Import. Browse to the folder for the album and click Select Folder or Open. You should see the message that the Music App is adding the files. Afterward, the missing album should reappear, and you can sync it with your iPhone or iPad.
Besides that, Apple suggests checking if all your devices have the latest iOS, iPadOS, macOS, or iTunes versions for Windows. Also, make sure that Sync Library is turned on for all of your devices and all devices are connected to the internet.
If a song or album is still missing, the Cupertino-based company notes that the song might have been removed from Apple Music or is available under a different file name.So basically, you have to stop at iTunes and search for your missing music files and check the Sync box to play it again to your device and keep the file from hiding again.
