How to Rename a Playlist in Spotify on an iPhone

Giving a descriptive name to a playlist in Spotify is an oddly important element of navigating the app, especially once you have started to create a lot of playlists. Since our musical tastes will often lead to similar styles of music showing up in different playlists, it can be difficult to locate the correct one if they all have vague or imprecise names.

Eventually this might lead you to start naming your new playlists with more useful titles, but that still leaves the old ones with their less-than-ideal names. Re-creating all of those playlists could seem like a monumental task, but fortunately you are able to simply give the playlist a new name. Our guide below will show you how to rename a Spotify playlist in the iPhone app.
