How to stop music playback on and iPhone, iPod touch or iPad?

With the pause button

The only way to stop the music on an iPhone is to tap on the Pause button and then on the Home button to return to the Home screen. The music app will keep running in the background and after some period of inactivity, iOS will automatically close it.

With a headset

  • You can stop the music using the microphone button of the iPhone's headset. 
  • Some wireless headsets also have a tactile feature where they stop music playback with the touch of the earbud or headset.

With Siri

  • You can also ask Siri (the voice recognition system from Apple) to control the music playback. Just do a long press on the home button (or microphone button on headset ) and say "Stop music."

With a timer

The iPhone can automatically close the music app after a certain period of time.

  • Go to the Clock app > Timer
  • Go to When Timer Ends
  • Scroll down to the bottom and select Stop Playing. This will stop any music that is currently playing when the timer ends.
  • Click on Set and your settings are active.
