How to Scrub Through Music & Video on an iPhone

Learn how to scrub through music and video on an iPhone in this Howcast video.


Hi, Lisa here. I'm gonna show you how to scrub through music and videos. So, first what we're gonna do is we're gonna open up our Music Player. And now I have a song pulled out. So, what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna hit play, and then I can choose how quickly I wanna progress through the song. So, I'm gonna press my finger right on where the indicator of the song is, and the higher I go, the more finely it scrubs through the song.

So, at the top it says fine scrubbing, as I move, it moves very slowly, so only a little bit of a second and a time. If I move my finger down, I get quarter speed, so it goes to the song a little bit faster. And then if I move down again, I get half speed, so it goes through even faster. And if I go down more, it's gonna go high-speed scrubbing, so it's gonna go quickly through the song as I move my finger.

So, that's your options for scrubbing through a song, and you can go to your videos the same exact way. So, that's how you scrub through your music and videos.
