iOS 15.2 finally lets people search Apple Music playlists

With the imminent release of iOS 15.2, Apple Music subscribers will finally be able to search through a playlist. This feature is currently not available, although it is requested by people.

As of this writing, iOS 15.2 is in its third beta release and is available to developers as well as those in the public beta program. However, it is unknown when the update will be available for everyone.

In the meantime, here’s how 9to5Mac describes the situation with iOS 15.2 installed.

It’s a long-requested feature for Apple Music, and it’s rather surprising (frustrating?) that it took so long to add it. Of course, in typical Apple fashion, the search bar is hidden within the UI. To find the new search field, open a playlist in the Music app on your iPhone, then swipe down from the top to reveal the new “Search” field.

Some people will still prefer Spotify and other streaming apps, but others will strongly argue that Apple Music is the best iPhone app and service for listening to music, especially for anyone who also has other Apple services. The Apple One subscription includes Apple Music as well as other services like Apple TV+ and Apple Arcade, for example.

Whether you’re an Apple Music user or not, there’s no denying that this feature change will be very well received once iOS 15.2 is released to everyone.
