iOS 10 Music App: How To Find The Shuffle And Repeat Buttons

Close

If you've installed the iOS 10 on your Apple device, you may have noticed a few changes to some features and functionalities, especially to the Apple Music app.

While the new operating system update now makes it easier for users to navigate through songs in the library, it also tucks away some options that were readily available before, such as the Shuffle and Repeat buttons. This can cause quite some confusion for longtime users of the music streaming service.

To help you find your way through the revamped app, here's a quick walkthrough on how to use the iOS 10 version of the Apple Music app.

Looking For The Shuffle And Repeat Buttons

One key change to the music app is the inclusion of a "Now Playing" bar at the bottom of the screen. Some users say that they are able to see the Shuffle button while they're browsing through the songs in the music catalog or music library, but then it disappears when they switch to the Now Playing interface.

The feature isn't in the Control Center, in the pop-up menu on the screen's lower-right corner or in the playback controls for the 3D Touch feature.

To bring up the Shuffle button again, tap on the Now Playing bar in order to see the play screen. Without pressing any of the buttons, swipe the play screen to switch to the "Up Next" queue. You'll be able to see the Shuffle and Repeat buttons at the bottom right corner of this screen.

Hidden Song Delete Button

Another noticeable addition to the Apple Music app interface is a seemingly hidden delete button located at the bottom left corner of the Up Next screen.

As Twitter user Stephen Radford pointed out, if you happen to press on this button, a dialogue box will pop up, informing you that the song on screen has been downloaded to your iPhone. It will also ask you whether you want it removed from your music library or from your smartphone entirely.

Before this, users would have to tap the pop-up menu (the three dots) on the lower right corner of the Library screen to pull up the Delete option.

Placing a hidden button on this part of the interface can be cumbersome to users, especially if they keep tapping on it accidentally while using the music app.

It's still unclear whether Apple meant to include this feature with the iOS 10 or if it will be removed with a later update.
