It’s human that we like to listen to our favorite music very often. On any other media player, you can always go back and replay the music of your choice. But if you are using your iPhone, iPad, or Mac you need to explore the device first and then check the history of songs you have played. There are countless moments when we forget our favorite track played on yesterday.
You can be listening to Beats 1, Apple Music radio stations, For You playlists or your own library; but it might be difficult for you to remember the lyrics or name of artists. In such case, you can check the history on your iPhone, iPad or Mac.
Remember that iPhone deletes the list of songs from your library and For Your playlists once you close iTunes or restart your iPhone.
On the contrary, songs you listen to on Beats 1 or Apple Music radio stations are synced across the devices; a full list is created in both iTunes app on your iPhone and on your Mac. It is not yet confirmed that how many days of history is stored.
