iOS Remote App Not Displaying Album Artwork on Some Devices

If you use the iOS Remote app to control your iTunes library, you may have noticed that it doesn’t display album art on some devices. On my iPhone 5s, I doesn’t display album art, but rather shows this a blank cover, with the name of the album and artist. If, however, I tap Up Next, it does display album art thumbnails.

The same thing happens on my iPad Air 2. However, on my iPod touch, the Remote app does display album art.

This is clearly a bug, but it’s odd that it only affects certain devices. What about you; which devices does it work on, and which don’t display album art?
