How to Sort Songs By Title in Apple Music with iOS 10

* This post is part of iPhone Life's Tip of the Day newsletter. . *

Did anyone else upgrade to iOS 10, visit their songs on Apple Music, and ask, “What happened? What are my song arranged by artist on my iPhone?” I threw up my hands and decided to get used to it, but one of our editors, Rheanne, came in my office today with a solution. And it’s super easy. If you’re not a fan of sorting songs by artist in Apple Music, you can change it back to the pre-iOS 10 state. Before iOS 10, songs were automatically sorted by title. With the upgrade, sorting songs on Apple Music suddenly changed; now you can change it back. Here’s how to sort songs by title on Apple Music with iOS 10.

How to Sort Songs by Title in Apple Music

  • Open the Settings app.

  • Tap Music.

  • Under Library, tap Sort Songs & Albums

  • Tap By Title.

For me, I ended up keeping my music sorted by artist, because I realized I remembered the artist before the song title, which made it easier for me to find a song when browsing. Whatever your preference, changing the setting is easy enough.
