Do you want to know which songs you’ve been listening to recently on Apple Music? Learn how to see your Apple Music history using this guide.

Apple Music Replay is a feature in Apple music that allows you to see information about the songs you’ve been listening to all year. It also generates a playlist based on the songs you’ve played the most.

However, it won’t show every song you’ve been listening to. For example, if you’ve just listened to an album for the first time, those songs are unlikely to appear in your Apple Music Replay. They won’t appear until you play them several more times.

When you want to see the most recent tracks you’ve been listening to on Apple Music, it’s possible to do so by looking at your Apple Music listening history. If you’re ready to check out the songs you’ve been playing recently, here’s how to see your Apple Music history.

How to See Your Apple Music History on iPhone

Seeing your Apple Music history on your iPhone is easy to do with just a few taps. You can see a list of the songs you’ve listened to, with the most recent first. The list will only reflect the songs you’ve listened to on your iPhone.

If you’ve also listened to Apple Music on your Mac, these songs won’t appear in your iPhone history.

To see your Apple Music history on your iPhone:

  1. Open Apple Music.
  2. Tap the current song at the bottom of the screen.
