Tip: Make A New Playlist From Music Right From Your iPhone

Remember the days when you had make playlists from iTunes and then sync them to your iPhone, iPod, or iPad? If you forgot a playlist then you had to start all over again? Well those days are over. In case you don’t already know, here’s how you can make a new playlist in Music right on your iOS device:

  1. Launch Music in iOS.
  2. Tap the Playlists tab.
  3. Tap “Add Playlist…” and give your new playlist a name.
  4. Sort through the song list and tap the blue (+) icon for each song you want added to the playlist.
  5. When your finished, tap “Done”.
  6. Listen and enjoy your new playlist.

It’s also easy to edit playlists, change the playlist order of songs, clear the contents of playlists, or delete the playlist completely right from your iPhone, iPod, or iPad. The next time you connect to a computer, your new playlists should sync with iTunes easily on a Mac or PC. If it doesn’t do it automatically, then you can just export the playlist manually to transfer it to your computer.

This feature has been around since iOS 5, so most devices should be able to do it.
