How to Customize Your iPhone's Audio Collection

If you’d prefer to browse through your iPhone's audio files by criteria other than playlists, artists, or songs, there is a way to customize your collection so it suits your needs. Tap the More button at the bottom-right corner of the screen. The More list appears. Tap a choice in the list — albums, audiobooks, compilations, composers, genres, or podcasts — and your audio collection is organized by your criterion.

But wait, there’s more. You can swap out the Playlists, Artists, Songs, and Video buttons for ones that better suit your needs. So, for example, if you listen to a lot of podcasts and never watch video, you can replace the Video button with a Podcasts button. Here’s how:

  1. Tap the More button at the bottom-right corner of the screen.

  2. Tap the Edit button at the top-left corner of the screen.

  3. Drag any button on the screen — Albums, Podcasts, Audiobooks, Genres, Composers, Compilations — onto the button at the bottom of the screen that you want it to replace.

  4. You can also rearrange the five buttons now by dragging them to the left or right.

  5. When everything is just the way you like it, tap the Done button to return to the More list.
