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 ...

The 'E' is not text, it is artwork. iTunes on your Mac has the same artwork. This artwork is located within the iTunes app. This is how you can find it: Go to /Applications Right click 'iTunes' and select 'Show Package Contents' Now go to 'Contents' -> 'Resources' -> 'English' (or any other installed language) In here you will find the artwork in png ...

You can add a 3rd party app that supports mp3 playback to the iOS device and if they support AirDrop you will get a prompt after AirDrop of mp3 from computer to iOS device asking which program to open the mp3. My prompts include iMovie, Evernote and Google Drive. I use Evernote. This does not put it in iOS iTunes. But I'm not always near the computer ...

The E symbol means "Explicit". You can enable or disable explicit content within Settings on your device. You'll find the "ALLOW MUSIC & PODCASTS RATED" option under General -> Restrictions -> Music & Podcasts. You may need to enter a PIN code to access the Restrictions settings. You can disable the restrictions entirely by selecting the "Disable ...

He is probably looking for the following unicode character : ️Negative Squared Latin Capital Letter E The letter : 🅴 NB: The letter is not visible on my Windows. My iPhone displays it.

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.

Go to music app and top right hand corner says history and it will show played music even from other apps

Assuming the duplicated songs were purchased from iTunes, you can go to Settings > iTunes & App Store, then turn off "Show All - Music". This toggle shows all the songs you have purchased regardless of if it is on your device or not.


1

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


1

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. ...
