    To remove individual songs on iOS 7 or later iPhones, tap the Music app and then the Songs category. Swipe left over the song, and tap Delete to remove the title from your iPhone. To remove artists or albums (only available in iOS 8 or later models), select the Artists menu and repeat the process.

  3. Delete multiple songs or your entire music library

    To delete your entire music library, tap Settings, General and then Usage. Tap the Manage Storage menu under the Storage section, and select Music.
