    I'm looking for a good basic music player to use on my iPhone 6. I was using Groove for awhile, but it doesn't appear to be supported anymore. It's no longer available in iTunes. I want to play music from my personal library and use shuffle play. Something to replace the iPhone music app. Definitely don't need all the overhead. Thoughts?

    I don't use any other music player aside from the native Music app. Sorry. What's wrong with the native Music app, by the way?

    I can shuffle my entire music library fine using the stock Music app... All my music is on my phone...

    Dumb question, but where is the shuffle selection?

    Oh... So you have to make a playlist before you can shuffle.... Got it! You can't shuffle your whole library though..

    Sorry for the delayed replies. I'm watching the 'U' vs BCU football game.

    Simultaneously press both the home and power buttons quickly. Unless the device is muted, you should hear the camera shutter sound.

    I don't know what else to tell you except to reboot your iPhone. As you can clearly see in my screenshots, the shuffle option is suppose to be there at the top of the screen.

    That option is not available on my iPhone either. Are you on 8.4.1? Or are you running the 9 beta?

    There is another way. On the screen you are showing in the above post, change 'artists' to 'songs'. Start playing a song from this screen and go to 'now playing' screen. Tap the shuffle button.

    It's like I always say 'D ... some people just change stuff for the sake of changing stuff ...
    It's kinda funny, most of the time they don't even know why they don't like something ... they just know they don't like it ... ;-)

    My shuffle only shows with playlists. It's not in "My Music". I don't subscribe to Music.

    It just seems more complicated than it needs to be and I don't subscribe to Apple Music. Just my opinion.
