Getting rid of some playlists that you don’t interested in or some useless duplicate songs on iPhone music app is one good way to free up the limited storage of your devices. However if you have tried to delete music on iPhone/iPad, you would find that you have to delete songs one by one, which is a little difficult – especially when you have so many songs you plan to get rid of. So is there some simple way to make it?

Actually, there is no easy way that Apple provided for you to directly 1-click remove multiple songs from iPhone on its Music app. If you want to delete more than one song or one playlist at a time, you have to use iTunes or some iTunes alternatives. So in this post, we provide two methods below to help you make it.
