The iOS 10 Music app is revised and I had to get used to the new layout, thus investing some time in finding things.

However, I am pretty clueless on where to find the Add to Up Next feature. There is the Play Next feature, but this doesn't allow me to add the selected song to the bottom of the queue. Using this on selected songs will essentially reverse the order of selected songs.

Where can I find the Add to Up Next feature on iOS 10 Music app?


  • That option does not appear to be present in iOS 10.

There appears to be a bug in the way the iOS 10 Music app handles this. However, there is a workaround that will get you by until Apple fixes it.

Take these steps:

  1. Go into the Up Next screen
  2. Turn off the Shuffle function
  3. Completely close down the Music App (don't just exit)
  4. Launch the Music App again
  5. Use 3D Touch (press firmly) on a song and select the Play Next option
  6. Now use 3D Touch again, but on another song, and you'll see the Play Later option.
  7. Select Play Later to add that song to the bottom of your Up Next queue.
  8. Now the Play Later option will be there for all following songs.

However, the reason this is a workaround is that:

  • you no longer have the Shuffle function available to you.
  • I'm not sure what the workaround is if you have a device without 3D Touch

To have this whole issue fixed, send feedback to Apple.

  • I don't use shuffle. But after using Play Next once, the option Play Later doesn't appear.

  • Hmmm, pretty sure I didn't miss a step. Just confirming - at Step 3 did you completely exit the Music app by double-pressing the Home button and swiping up on the app?

  • Interesting. I just turned shuffle on and then off. After step 3 and skipping step 5, it works. Must be a bug so we should expect it to get fixed. Until then, this is a great workaround! +1

  • Good to know, Hopefully this helps others out! Oh, and make sure you send Apple some feedback about this.

  • 3D Touch? What is that? (iPhone SE user).

I have an iPhone 6 and all I had to do was quit the app, add a song using Play Next, then I could add any songs I wanted using Play Later. I think the Play Later feature doesn't show if you just press on a song to play instantly, because I pressed on a song in my playlist and it adds all the other songs after it in that playlist into the Up Next list.
