How to Remove Music from Your Apple Watch


You can add up to 2 GB of music to your Apple Watch so you can listen to music on your watch using a Bluetooth speaker or headphones even when it’s out of range of your iPhone. However, if you want to remove the music, that’s easily done.

You must use your phone to remove a playlist from your watch. Tap the “Watch” app icon on the Home screen.


Make sure the “My Watch” screen is active. If not, tap the “My Watch” icon at the bottom of the screen.


On the “My Watch” screen, tap “Music”.


The playlist currently on your watch is listed next to “Synced Playlist”. To remove this playlist from your watch, tap on the “Synced Playlist”.


The synced playlist is labeled with “Synced” and a check mark in the list of available playlists on your phone.


Before removing the playlist from your watch, be sure to connect your watch to the charger. Your watch must be charging to sync music to or remove music from it. Scroll to the bottom of the list and tap “None”.


When there is no playlist synced on your watch, a check mark displays next to “None”.


If select your watch as the source of music and select “Playlists”, a message displays on your watch that no music is available.


Again, make sure your Apple Watch is charging before removing a playlist from it or adding a playlist to it.
