How to Edit iPhone Playlist Easily and Quickly

"Instead of recreating a playlist, is there any easy way to edit playlist name on iPhone? Sometimes, I need to update playlist on iPhone, but it usually takes me a lot of time. Any suggestion will be appreciated. Thanks!"

To be honest, you can edit playlist directly on iPhone. However, it's not handy enough to update playlist on iPhone, especially when it comes to renaming a playlist. On iPhone, you're only allowed to edit a playlist name at the first place when you create it. After that, you can't change its name any more. And In this case, to edit playlist on iPhone easily, I suggest you try Wondershare TunesGo.
