How can I add the music stored on my iPhone to my Play5 sonos?  I have pandora and Apple Music but want to select from library stores in my phone.

You haven't been able to play music stored on an iPhone for years.  Apple killed that function back in 2019.

Hi @Mbradley 

Welcome to the Sonos Community!

The only ways to play music stored on your iPhone on your Sonos speakers is to use AirPlay 2 (with a compatible speaker) or use Bluetooth (also with a compatible Sonos speaker).

You should be able to upload your music to Apple Music and then stream it directly to your Sonos speakers, however - this would result in less battery drain for your iPhone while playing.

I hope this helps.

Thank you to everyone who replied. I will see if I can make the last suggestion work. I appreciate the help.
