Using Your iPhone’s Music Player

By Edward C. Baig, Bob LeVitus

To use your iPhone to listen to music, just tap the Music icon on the Home screen. Then, at the bottom of the screen that appears, you should see five icons: For You, New, Radio, Connect, and Library. If Apple Music is disabled in the Settings app, you only see four icons; For You is exclusively for Apple Music users.

If you don’t see these icons, tap the back icon in the upper-left corner of the screen (the one that looks like a little arrow pointing to the left).

If you’re used to the previous version of the Music app, you’re surely wondering where your songs, playlists, artists, and everything else went. Don’t worry; everything has been moved to the Library tab.

The iPhone lets you do just about anything you could want to do regarding music. If you’re new to the iPhone, you will want to check out Apple Music and iTunes. You’ll need to know about the new Apple Music and the not-so-new iTunes Match subscription services, because almost everything in the Music app works differently if you subscribe to one or both.
