I need help finding a way to delete more than one song at a time on my iPhone. Can someone tell me if that is possible?

I have tried deleting songs on my iTunes and then syncing them but it does not work and it takes way too much time.

  • Which iOS version?

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 compilations for deletion.

  • I could not delete albums/artists, swipe right and nothing happens, on 5s/ios7
