Even though playing music on your iPhone is such a common activity, it can be difficult to find the control to repeat a song – both in Apple Music and Spotify.

For both apps, you’ll have to enable the repeat button in single song mode (the repeat button has two modes). Ordinarily, it will repeat the entire queue, but when it displays a “1,” it will only repeat the selected song.

Here’s how to put a single song on repeat in both apps.
