Adding music to the iPod seems easy, but deleting songs from the iPod doesn't since Apple doesn't offer the option to delete songs in bulk. To help you and those who want to delete a song(s) from the iPod touch, we collect some practical ways to do it. Whether you want to remove songs from iPod but keep them on the computer or want to delete them forever, you can find your solutions here.

Part 1. Delete Songs from iPod Directly

For the iPod touch running iOS 8.3 and earlier:

Open “Music” app > Select “Songs” > Find the song you want to remove > Slide to the right until the “Delete” button appears > Tap the “Delete” button to remove the selected song.

Bonus Tip

“I deleted music from iPod by using iTunes but I just found that the music remains on my iPod, it is weird. What happened?”

If you have encountered the same problem, the reason may be that you haven’t turned off “Sync with this [device] over Wi-Fi” on iTunes. It will automatically sync iTunes with your iPod when your device is plugged into power and connected to the same Wi-Fi with iTunes. Just check it and turn off it to avoid automatic syncing.
