Deleting songs in the Music App

Hi, How can I delete Songs in Music using VoiceOver? I've read it's possible, but I'm not sure how to do this. Thank you. Sandra


As far as I know you can't do

As far as I know you can't do this with Music, but it does work with Podcasts.
When you find what ever you want to delete, double-tap and hold, and while holding swipe right. You will hear "confirm deletion for what ever", double-tap, and there you go.
I did find though that after doing this and syncing iTunes would stubberny copy what ever it was I deleted back to the device.


Thank you Peter, this works for me, It also deletes music, not just podcasts.

deleting music from iPhone 4

Hi: how did you do this exactly; when I double tap and hold then swipe, nothing happens. How exactly do you swipe and where? I can't seem to delete any tracks. Either nothing happens or I end up playing the particular track I want to delete. Very frustrating. Thanks

Deleting songs in the music app

Hi Skyhook,
What you wanna do is, open up the music app, go to the track you want to delete, double tap holding down on the second tap, and swipe left to right, or right to left in a fast motion. Then you will hear Vo ask you to confirm that you want to delete the song, or playlist, double tap to delete, and there ya go.
I did have trouble learning this gesture also, and the way it worked for me, is I did a two finger double tap, holding down on the second tap, and the custom label field showed, and then, I canceled out of it, did the above mentioned steps, and it worked. Not sure why it worked out for me in this manner, but it did.
Hope this helps. If not, feel free to reply with any other questions.

Another tip

By the way, if you don't want the song you deleted from the MUsic app to come back to your i-device when you've deleted it there, you should delete it from your iTunes library too. It's easy enough to forget to do that, I've forgotten to do so myself with both songs and apps, so that they've ended up back on my iPhone because I left them in my iTunes library when I synced the phone again.
