It is absolutely true that none of The Beatles knew how to write or read sheet music.
The reason is they didn’t have to.
As they came together and matured as a band, they were doing what most bands in their early years were doing, that is cover songs.
The way a band learns to play a cover is for the musician to listen to the recording and play along on his instrument. The players bring it all together at the next band rehearsal. I don’t believe things were any different for The Beatles than anybody else.
Lennon and McCartney, whether together or apart, wrote the words and the chords down and played a demo on a tape recorder.
