How to Create a Playlist on the iPhone

With the music player being such a popular part of the iPhone, most users tend to find themselves flooding their phone with abundant music. Now when you go on and put so much music in your phone you tend to realize that you don’t want to listen to all the songs that you have at your disposal.

Based on our mood or what you are doing, you might want to hear a specific genre of music, or some songs that you feel you are currently liking more than others.

In such situations, the most beneficial thing to do, is create a playlist on your iPhone with all the songs that you wish to hear at that point in time.

    Use iTunes

    One of the most common ways to create a playlist on your phone is to use your computer and iTunes. If you go on and create a playlist on iTunes, all you have to do is connect your phone to the laptop via a cable, and then wait for the phone to show up in iTunes. Once this happens, you can simply drag and drop playlists into your music folder via iTunes, or set it to auto sync so it ends up putting playlists in for you without you having to do anything, other than connecting your phone to the laptop and turning iTunes on.

    These playlists can only be deleted after you connect your iPhone to iTunes again.
