Make sure you really want to delete all the music because they can’t be restored afterwards. Open General » Usage in Settings. Wait for iOS to load all the apps that take up the storage of your iPhone/iPad. Find and select Music from the list. You’ll see All Music in the list. Tap the Edit button on the top right, and choose to delete All Music.

As they say in the iPhone world, "There's an app for that" (Review) :-) It's called OnCue.

I would say there isn't really any default music player on the iPhone. You could say that Apple's Music-app is the one that opens when you press "Play" on the lock-screen or the "multitasking bar", but there's no real advantage in that. To answer your question, no. You are pretty much unable to change any default things in the non-jailbroken version of iOS. ...

There could be a corruption in your music library that is preventing the 'sync' to finish. On your iPhone, turn iTunes Match off, then open Settings > General > Usage > (wait for usage to populate) > Music > tap Edit and then the red remove icon. Restart your phone When your phone is back on, open Music to ensure its empty. If its not, complete the above ...

This isn't a feature that's ever been directly included as a human readable list in iTunes, on an iPod, or any modern generation iOS device. This information is stored in a machine readable format, which is used first for a song's play counts (viewable only in iTunes), but there is also software written to take advantage of this information, and send it to ...

No, you can't see this on an iOS device. If you create a smart playlist like this, you can look in iTunes, after syncing your iPhone, to see what you've listened to.

iOS 7 has changed the face of the Music app somewhat. The biggest thing that was introduced is that now, all of you iTunes store music purchases show up automatically in the Music.app. This allows you to stream those songs without actually storing them on your device (an excellent option). As a result you have two options: You can manage music the old ...

The Music app is pretty limited in terms of the metadata it displays. At the moment it's not possible to view the play counts for songs. Third party apps can access your music collection, but I'm not sure how much metadata is exposed to them. It may be possible to see play counts with a third party app, but I don't know for sure, nor do I know of any apps ...

You could try Play It Next, it does just that.

After contacting a local Apple Store, I was informed that, the feature "Add all tracks" used in the playlist has been removed, and now you have to manually add each song or use iTunes to make the Playlist !!

You can delete songs directly in your music application. Just get the title overview and swipe from one side to the other and a delete button appears. When you have automatic syncronisation activated in your iTunes, it will automatically sync your music next time you're in the same network with your iTunes computer, your iTunes is started on this computer ...

Here are the things you will want to try: Force the Music app to close. Restart your device. Update to the latest iOS version. I do not recommend that you close every single app in the multitasking bar. Simply restarting will have the same effect on system resources and is much less inconvenient.

You should get the Music Queue Player, this app will solve your problem. It uses the iOS music library and iOS 7 design and allows you to manage queues of songs that you can update whilst playing. You can also save queues. It's the best app of this kind I've seen!

What I would try: Make a current backup your iPhone via either iTunes or iCloud. Eject the iPhone from iTunes. iPhone Settings > General > Usage > Storage > Music > Edit > Delete Reboot your iPhone Connect your iPhone to iTunes and attempt to manually sync the playlists in question.

First of all, if you ever participate in iTunes' free singles, those will obviously count as iTunes tracks. (It used to be called Single of the Week, I believe, but now it's found just under "Free on iTunes" on the Mac/PC versions of iTunes.) By the same token, participating in any of those promotions - 12 Days of Christmas, iTunes Festival, etc. where ...

What I did: Sync your iPhone with iTunes. In iTunes, click Summary and uncheck Manually manage music and videos OR go to Music and uncheck Sync Music. When prompted whether you wish to proceed -- because unchecking means the current music files in your phone will be erased, which is what you want to do to resolve this problem -- click Remove and Sync. ...

In the Songs list or Playlist, just swipe it to the left, like you would an unwanted email, text etc I haven't tested whether this 'reports back' to iTunes & unchecks it there - I'm running a sync now to see & will edit... Edit: it doesn't delete or uncheck the track from 'My Music', the definitive iTunes list; but it does remove it from an iTunes ...

This is currently not possible without jailbreaking. You can provide feedback to Apple here: https://www.apple.com/feedback/iphone.html

When your iPhone is not jailbreaked it is not possible. When you have an jailbroken iPhone, it is possible to move files in your iPhone with iFile. The music in iTunes on your iPhone is stored within several maps so I do not know if it works when simple moving the music files.

I had no choice but to remove all music from my iPhone. I have had music intrude in on my 3rd party apps playlists and even phone calls on bluetooth in multiple vehicles. This is a ridiculous solution to a problem I hope is fixed soon. I tried to go straight to step 5 but Music app was not in the list for me delete to select (iPhone 6 plus iOS <= 8.1.2) ...

Going along with Stuart H's comment, I believe the music app for iOS only looks for explicit tags on a song because they can be used for setting restrictions on the device, clean tags are unnecessary because the songs are considered to be clean unless an explicit tag is found. So having a tag for every song would be pretty useless and clutter up the UI.

These songs are iTunes purchases that are available for download but not currently on your iPhone. To hide these: Settings > iTunes & App Store > Show All: Music = OFF

The most like answer for that is that not all songs may have been transferd to your device maybe do to unsupported format or maybe you have duplicates in your itunes library.

The answer to this question is incredibly simple, and needs no elaboration other than enough to justify the size of the post and prevent Stack Exchange from automatically marking it as low quality or affecting it. That answer? No, you can't. The All Songs section of an artist view, exactly like the all Songs category on iOS, is always by alphabetical title. ...

You can do it by deleting albums, artists or compilations from the respective views. Swipe right on the item to get the Delete button and tap it to delete an entire album, an entire artist's works or an entire compilation. This still works only one (album or artist or compilation) at a time. There is no way to select multiple albums or artists or ...

There's an app for iOS 7 than now allows you to do it, it's called PlayCounts. It allows you to create playlist on the fly by selecting play counts of the songs, and see how many times you have played each song.

Launch Clock Choose Timer Tap on When Timer Ends Scroll right to the bottom and pick Stop Playing Set your time - say, 20 minutes (or whatever time you want) and tap on Start Hope this helps.

It may have something to do with there not being enough memory and the Music app trying to accommodate for that by stopping the music the moment you exit it. While normally you don't have to worry about closing individual apps that are in the app tray, for debugging this issue, I would recommend that close every app that is in the app launcher, then ...

You can delete them directly on your phone by sliding the song to the left on the songs list.

I haven’t seen any official announcement about this, but since it’s an undocumented setting, it’s not surprising that the functionality would’ve silently disappeared. If you’d like it back you might consider filing an enhancement request.
