It would have happened with almost all of us that we loved a particular song from our music library but not remembering their name. It is really a pain to find that song if you have music track in a number of hundreds. To your surprise, your iPhone or iPad takes care of this issue.
It doesn’t matter whether you are using Beats 1, Apple Music radio stations, For You playlists, or your own personal music library. If you are using your own library or For You playlists then the history is saved only for that particular device and also it resets when you restart your iPhone or iPad. In addition, the history list is wiped out once you exit the app.
On the other hand, if you are using Apple Music or Beats 1, your history is saved across all your synced devices and also it doesn’t reset when you restart your device. There is no mention of the duration the list is saved, but it should be for at least a week. Now, let’s jump to get hands on the forgotten song, check how to do it.
How to view the history of your music library on iPhone or iPad:
Step #1. Open Music app on your iPhone or iPad.
Step #2. Select any song from the list to play it. This will start playing the song and you will get a small toolbar with currently playing track at the bottom. All you need to do is to tap that toolbar.
