Apple just wiped out some early Apple Music bugs


Apple Music review 27

Apple has today rolled out new versions of iOS and OS X geared towards fixing some of the early problems encountered by Apple Music listeners.

In iOS 8.4.1 the company has blasted a number of the early niggles, such as an issue preventing users from turning on iCloud Music Library.

It also zaps a flaw that hid added tunes because the app was set to show offline music only.

Elsewhere, users can now add songs to a new playlist when there are none listed, while the update also solves issues with incorrect artwork and a poorly performing Love button (heheh!) in Beats 1.

The fixes come following a relatively smooth first month-or-so for Apple’s crucial streaming service.

An unfortunate issue that messed with the metadata of users’ iTunes Library was taken care of quickly and it’s been solid going since then.

Just last week Apple announced 11 million people had signed up for the three month free trial period.

As far as the Mac OS X update goes, iTunes has been updated to v12.2.2 which improves an artists’ ability to share from the desktop.

How are you finding Apple Music so far? Are you still listening to Beats 1?

From a musician's perspective, the Connect aspect of Apple Music is important, however it too has some bugs. For example we can't even see how many followers we have. That should be public, just like how Facebook pages show how many Likes each page has, and Twitter shows how many follwers, etc..
