Hi there!

I'm looking to completely wipe out some songs from both my iphone and my mac.

It's a lot of my brothers music which has been sitting on my Itunes for some time and annoying me whenever I put my iPhone on shuffle.

I dont want to spend hours on my mac going through and deleting music, so I was wondering if there's any way to do this on my iPhone (this way I could just delete music when I'm waiting on line or at the doc. office, etc.)

I've tried sliding left and deleting songs which works fine except it only deletes from my iPhone and any time I sync, all those bothersome songs come right back onto my iPhone again.

Is there any way to delete music from all linked apple products by using your iPhone 5?


If any one has any easy deleting tips and tricks it would be a huge help to know!

Thanks a bunch!

iPhone 5, The computer I have is a MacbookPro

    No. You're either going to have to delete this content in your iTunes library, on your computer, or remove the checks next to this content so it doesn't sync to your phone. You could also create a playlist, in iTunes, of just the content you want on your phone, then select that playlist and only that playlist to sync to your phone.
