  1. On iTunes, you can then go to the Parental icon and uncheck “Apple Music Connect” to hide the “Connect” button in the Music bar.

    I have yet to find how to remove “Radio”.

  3. I manually updated iTunes this morning after seeing all your new post emails (I did not receive the notice of a new version) and only saw the Apple Music category inside the Preferences/General tab. Is it supposed to show up on the iTunes home screen? In any case I hid it. Thanks for all the tips, Kirk, and you are going to be very, very busy for quite a while with all this. (I can’t figure out if Apple likes you or considers you a thorn in their side, but you’re definitely doing work their support should do but does not!)
