Hey @ozzyj93 , since the new iOS Version 1.7 update, esp with the feedback of users thats complaining that they have accidentally deleted tons of tracks.
The new mechanism of deleting music is to hit the "..." button on the top right corner, and hit the edit menu option (the first option), and hit the screw on the left side for those you want to delete and hit the red delete key.
I think it's the sycing problem. If you want deleted music disppearing forever. You should try iPhone Data Eraser. It's designed to erase data completely from iPhone/iPad/iPod. You can use it to delete music from iPad. Step 1.Install iPhone Data Eraser on the computer and connect iPad with computer. Step 2.Choose "Erase All Data on Device" on the list. Step 3.Delete music on iPad. "Medium" level is the most common choice. Click "Start" to erase.
Is there any way we can get an answer on this? We need a way to swipe and delete an individual song while it is playing in the starred playlist. In my Starred playlist, I have about 70000 songs that I like to listen to on shuffle. In this scenario, I cannot click the ..., then the edit button, find the song, and then delete it. As soon as you hit the ..., edit button, you have to go find the song in order to delete it. When on shuffle, with 70K songs, there is literally no way to do this. Enough people are asking to swipe, delete individual songs from the starred list on mobile app, NOT the current solution of ..., edit, find song, then delete. That is too convoluted. Please answer!!
If the songs you want to delete are in sequence top-to-bottom, hold the Shift key down, click the first song you want to delete, scroll down to the last song you want to delete, click that song, THEN...hit the Delete key on your keyboard.
If the songs you want to delate are NOT in sequence...same concept, only this time hold down the Command key, then individually select the songs you want do delete...then hit the Delete key on your keyboard.
BAM! Blew your mind.
Blew mine at least. Who thought it would be this simple.
When I click the "..." the only options I get are Save, Add to Playlist, Add to Queue, Share, Go to Radio, Go to Artist. I do not get an Edit option. I used to have a Remove from Playlist option but that is also gone.
It's Great to know that you are actually taking customer feedback on board and trying to make things work, but this is a silly solution. What is the reason why you don't provide the delete option on the playback screen within the currently playing song menu?
As other users have said, if I'm playing ONE song that I want to delete from even a relatively small playlist of say 150 songs, I still don't want to have to scroll through all my tracks to find that song and click delete. I want to click the option button on the playback screen of that currently playing song and click 'remove from playlist'. It's the most effective way to edit your playlists on the go for speed and...
...Knowing that consumers want things done quickly this move is a backward step, especially if you have hundreds and hundreds of songs, which some people do!
You've provided them with the ability to do this, collect hundreds of tracks but then not considered this when implementing this very slow process of deleting songs.
Go for a halfway house, at least put the 'remove track from playlist' option in the playback screen options for the currently playing track. This would help a lot. Thanks
