How to View Music Library and Radio History on iPhone or iPad

In case you forget the name of your favorite song, we have got your back. Check the guide how to view the history of your music library and radio on iPhone or iPad

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.
