How to Create & Edit Playlists on Your iPhone

Learn how to create and edit playlists on your iPhone in this Mac tutorial from Howcast.


Hi, Lisa here, and I'm going to show you how to create and edit playlists on your iPhone. The first thing you're going to do is go to your music. Once you're in here, you're going to want to go to Playlists, which is the second button from the left on the bottom. In here, if you've already purchased music from iTunes, you'll have an automatic playlist that's called "Purchased." To make your own, you can tap on "New Playlist." You're going to need to enter a name for your playlist, and we'll call ours "Howcast."

And once you save it, it's going to pop up with all the different music you can choose. So all this music is the stuff that's on your phone or that you've already purchased from the iTunes store. So here we'll just choose a few. Choose it by hitting the plus on the right hand side. Once you're done picking the songs that you like, you can hit Done in the top right hand corner. Now on this playlist you'll see all the songs you picked. You can go back to your playlist, see it there. Now let's say you want to take out a song that you've already put on.

You go back into the playlist, and then you can choose Edit in the top left hand corner. And you'll see red circles next to them. You can tap that red circle, and then hit Remove. And once you're done editing, you just tap Done. And that's it. That's how you create and edit playlists on your iPhone.
