How to Sort Music in an iPhone

The built-in Music app is the iPhone's default player for songs you've synced to your iPhone or stored in your iCloud account. When you browse your music collection, the app offers several sorting options to help you quickly find the tunes you're looking for.

...
Swipe a finger up or down the screen to scroll through your music.

Step

Tap the Music app to open the iPhone's music player.

...
The Music icon is labeled with a double whole note.
...
The Artists icon is labeled with the silhouette of a singer and microphone.

Step

Tap "Artists" on the bottom row of the Music app to view your music sorted alphabetically by artist.

...
The largest iPhone can hold almost 64GB of music.

Step

Touch "Songs" to view individual songs sorted alphabetically.

...
Not all songs will have labels for all potential sorting options.

Step

Tap "More" to see additional sorting options. Touch "Albums" to sort your music by album; "Genres" to sort by genre; "Compilations" to sort by compilation name; or "Composers" to sort by the composer's name.

...
Customizing your sorting options is a simple drag-and-drop process.

Step

Tap "Edit" in the upper right corner of the More menu to add new sorting options to the main Music menu. Hold your finger on the sorting option you wish to add to the menu and drag it over the menu item you wish to replace, then release and tap "Done." For example, you can replace "Radio" with "Albums," if you find that you use the Album sorting feature more frequently than the Radio feature.
