How to See Your Loved/Favorited Songs on Apple Music

find loved songs on Apple Music

In a recent update, Apple Music refined the original “Love” feature to “Favorite”, envisioning to provide users with a more unified and seamless listening experience. In the previous, “Love” feature was purely designed to teach Apple Music the user’s taste, helping them keep track of songs they enjoy in the wild. And Apple Music’s Mobile App doesn’t show you a list of loved songs on iPhone or iPad. Users have to create a specific playlist to collect their loved songs or set a smart playlist on PC/Mac to dynamically curate their loved songs.

Now with the new “Favorite” feature, Apple Music would automatically add all your favorited songs to a Favorite Songs playlist and your music library for convenient revisiting on iPhone or iPad so you can see them easily, just like what Spotify can do. However, this feature only opens to users having a device whose system version is iOS 17.0 or later, older system version may not enjoy this robust feature.

To address the needs and questions that most Apple Music users would meet in regard of loved songs, in this guide, we will explore how to find your loved songs both with Love & Favorite feature, regardless of your devices’ version. Let’s go ahead.
