This feature has been a long time coming, but it’s now here in Apple Music. It was difficult to quickly discover the music you wanted to listen to if you have a big Apple Music playlist on your iPhone since you couldn’t utilize the search box to look for a particular track. On both iPhone and iPad, Apple has finally introduced this feature to the Music app.

On Mac, you can search for music in playlists, but it doesn’t function as well as on iOS and iPadOS. Below, we’ll go through the distinctions.

Apple Music for iPhone and iPad: How to find songs in a playlist

iOS 15.2 or iPadOS 15.2 must be updated to take use of this new functionality. You may access any Apple Music playlist once you have loaded iOS 15.2 in the Music app (to locate them, tap the Listen Now tab at the bottom of the screen and select any playlist).

The search bar is now visible by swiping down. Type in the song or artists you’re searching for and hit enter. As a result, your 1,000-song playlists now seem more manageable.

Even if your iOS device is too old to run the latest version of Apple Music, you can still search inside playlists on your iOS devices. In order to do this, you will need a third-party app. Before iOS 15.2 came along, we were using Cs: Music Player ($2.99), and you should give it a go as well.

The first time you launch Cs: Music Player, it will ask you permission to access your Apple Music account. To locate the music you’re looking for, go to the Playlists page, open your favorite playlist, and type the song’s name into the Search Playlist Songs box. To find a certain song, type its name into the search box that appears here.

It’s totally OK to use Cs:Songs Player as an Apple Music player if you already have music in your library. When looking for new music, you should use the Music app to add all the playlists you need, and Cs: Music Player is focused on the songs in your collection. In addition, it’s a lot more efficient than the Music app.

Apple Music songs can be readily searched inside playlists on your Mac using the Music app, but the capability is concealed behind a keyboard shortcut. On a Mac, launch a playlist in the Music app and press Option + Command + F to search for songs. There is a search box that may be used to locate certain songs or artists in your playlists by clicking on this button.
