Have you ever found yourself listening to your iPod/iPhone/iPad, only to have something surface that you just didn’t care for? Up until now, you’d have to make note, and delete it from iTunes for Mac later. Now, with iOS 5, you can delete the offender from your device on the spot, no longer to plague your ears.
Personally, I’ll find this very useful. I don’t really have defined tastes in music, so I often trust others to make recommendations for me, which I generally download and at least give a chance to. On more than one occasion I have found myself questioning my friends’ judgement, and wished I could ban the offending music from my device right then – what joy that this is now a possibility!
According to our source, the process works via the same method as deleting an email on your iPhone – simply find the offending track, slide your finger over it, and a hidden “delete” button shows up right before your very eyes. Press it, and your track just bit the dust. There is not yet a mass delete feature, such as for an entire album, but still – some progress is better than no progress, right? You can even delete the track that is currently playing.
