Apple Music is a nightmare and I’m done with it | The Loop

I had high hopes for Apple Music. I really wanted it to work and become my default music streaming service, but after the problems I’ve experienced over the last couple of weeks, I’m disabling it altogether.

I really feel for Jim. He and I share the same love for music, even if our tastes are slightly different. I’ve had similar problems, which I outlined here. But these are just the latest problems related to Apple’s music in the cloud. iTunes Match has long been problematic, and issues that have been left unfixed in iTunes Match have migrated to Apple Music, or, more correctly, iCloud Music Library.

My solution is to only use Apple Music and iCloud Music Library on a test Mac, and on an iPod touch. There’s no way I’m letting my main music library go through the blender in iCloud Music Library.

  1. You may have seen this tweet from Craig Federighi already:

    “Emergency Exec meeting today to discuss the “@jdalrymple” issue. Seeing how much blame we can pin on Eddie ??”

    At least now we know they know.

  3. I don’t buy that anyone who is presented as such an authority as Jim Dalrymple does not back up their entire music collection before messing around with it, but I suspect he may be over-egging what was already a good article.

    While Apple Music mark 1 may be experiencing a similar level of birth difficulties as Apple Maps mark 1 did, surely the real issue for the majority of users is not to place blind faith in tech. Just this week in the UK we had a bad road smash reported where the satnav instructed the driver to cruise straight through (what in the US would be) a stop sign and across a major road.

  5. Yours is the correct solution. I’m baffled as to how anyone that has used Apple products over the past several years would put an early release of *any* Apple software on a primary device.
