There is a bug "Unknown Album" if you do that on an Apple Music track.

The music is synced from the computer and the iPhone is just mimicking the computers library. Once these changes have been made on the computer you will need to sync the iPhone with the computer again. The reason why there is not a solution on the phone is from the user interface not including an editing option for metadata, which is what is being changed ...

You ALSO have to go to, on your iPhone, Settings-->Music-->Turn off iCloud Music Library, I also turned off "Show Apple Music" for good measure.

I think that the smart playlist aren't updated on the iDevice even if the content is synced between the computer and the iDevice.

Syncing your iOS device to iTunes will not necessarily remove music from it. You can delete it directly from the device going to Settings > General > Usage > Manage Storage (under Storage)> Music, slide the first item "All Songs" to the left and press "Delete".

In my case it was an mp4 file. So, i pressed right mouse on the file in Itunes, and selected to Create ACC version. After this, I deleted the mp4 file. Then, I could right mouse, get info, and manually add my artwork.

I think the data comes from CDDB, or at least it used to, back in the day. You can edit (only add?) album art in iTunes by dragging image files onto the album art display. I don't know of any way to do it with only iOS.

There's no mechanism in iOS for modifying album artwork associated with your music. You'll need to use iTunes on Mac OS X or Windows. From there, you can manually choose your artwork, or ask iTunes to search for appropriate artwork.

When there are more than 15 new and excellent changes in the new music app and great upgrades still waiting, no one is caring for a option which shows track number. The Apple Music doesn't have the track number feature because it can then update Albums with no remix tracks. Every album has got some songs and they also add some remixed versions of the songs ...

Apple has removed the track number feature from the Music app and it is not known if or when it will return.

It was reported earlier today on multiple sources that Apple services were experiencing outages throughout the day. Service seems to have been restored after about an hour or so of outage, and Apple has yet to officially respond as the reasons why but it did correspond during the VMA announcement. For future status of their online services don't forget to ...

I had the same issue today. Reading through various threads a common theme kept coming up. Log out/in from iTunes. I went into Settings on my iPhone 6+ then clicked on my Apple ID at the top. Then I clicked Sign Out. Then I logged back in. When I went back to the Music app, I shuffled my songs and they all played which is a mix of iTunes Match music and ...

I've observed this issue with several iPod Touch devices (one V1, one V4). It only started for me when I moved my music files from my main PC HDD to a Wi-Fi connected NAS. My workarounds are as follows: I don't copy more than one album at a time (manually manage music). I wait for the previous copy to finish before starting a new one. When I do get ...

Select Songs from the list you want to shuffle. Select any song in that list to start playback. Enable shuffle mode, disable repeat. (click the mini player at the bottom of the screen and you will see the option to shuffle)

You should check out the CloudBeats app. I haven't used the app personally (and am not affiliated with it), but I've come across it before while contemplating a similar situation. I believe its features meet your needs: It can connect to your Dropbox account (along with various other cloud services) to play audio files It can download files for offline ...

It's really not possible to get music from Dropbox into the music app on your iPhone. Apple does not support getting music onto your iPhone that way. The Dropbox app will play the songs but is hardly a music playing app. You mention Linux. Do you have a Mac or a Windows PC? The best way is to add the songs to iTunes on a Mac or Windows PC and then sync your ...

When you import a file into iTunes and have the option "Copy files to iTunes Media folder when adding to library" it will create a copy and place it into iTunes media folder. You can then delete the original if desired because a copy was made. If you do not have that option checked it will not copy the file. The reason editing the song info does not affect ...

You can still use the alphabetic scroller! Simply go in Music screen, select artist then scroll down to make "Most Recent" disappear and the scroller will appear again!

This may vary slightly depending on what type of iPod you have, but generally if you want to delete arbitrary songs on the iPod (without having to modify any playlists etc. in iTunes itself that you are syncing from), you need to have the device set to "manually manage music" on the device Summary tab. Then, you select the device from the top bar when it is ...

Through investigating a similar question I have found the same thing, you don't appear to be able to create a Smart Playlist for online content. However if you download the song for offline playback you can Love it and it will show in the Smart Playlist of Loved songs. However this playlist does not sync to an iOS device, regardless of it being in offline ...

It is also possible to disable the new (iOS 8.4+) Music app and turn the app back to its old state. Settings > Music > Show Apple Music This way, only songs bought in the iTunes Store will be available.

You cannot uninstall or hide the default Apple apps. You can set up Restrictions [parental controls] to prevent access to particular apps or age-related content. Word of warning - don't forget the passcode or you'll have to wipe the phone & start over. Settings > General > Restrictions. Enable Restrictions & enter a passcode. When an option is ...

After looking at many sites on this, I gave up and just transferred my audiobooks back into music on my computer, then sync; the phone does not notice they are just another mp3. Inconvenient but ...

Yes, it depends on how many albums you have. If you have a lot of albums from an artist with only a couple of songs on each album, it's a truly awful piece of UX design.

Is there a bar on the bottom of the screen showing which song is currently playing? If so you can try dragging that up and it should bring you to a screen that has more stuff on it. Click on the button that looks like three dots with horizontal lines to the right of them (it's to the right of the skip/fast forward button); that will show "Up Next" ...

What about a ratings playlist? I've done this for years with my iTunes library and it's just a matter of creating a smart playlist for all songs rated five stars. You could import the Spotify list, select all, rate them five stars, and then they would automatically be added to the list. I'm doing this now with some minor success...my issue at the moment is ...

Check your Restrictions. Go to Settings > General > Restrictions. Enter your passcode. Look under "Allowed Content" for "Music, Podcasts & iTunes U", it should say "Explicit" to the right. If it does not, tap on it and enable it. If everything is greyed out when you arrive at Restrictions, it means they are disabled; I've read people have had ...

You have to click the icon in the upper right of the area that showcases the songs and then double click the first song in the list. See How do I resume the iTunes queue from when I last quit? In the case of this picture, I must double click on "Pilotwings 'Liftoff (Get High)'"

Try the menu item File > Library > Update iCloud Music Library. I had quit iTunes after initially enabling iCloud Music Library in preferences when it was only partially done uploading.

I saw this error when I added songs directly from the "For You" or "New" tabs in iTunes to a playlist. To fix the error for my playlist I manually added the songs to My Library, then added them to a playlist. I was then able to sync that playlist.

Personally I prefer it like this as this is how it used to be... I was a bit confused to why it was only doing it with some and not others but now I understand having it not bunch them up if I only have two or less albums is a lot more bearable than if for example, I have ten albums of some artists and have to go through every single song to get to one ...

You could install OS X in VirtualBox on your Mac, and login to your old Apple ID on the virtual Mac, and thus bypass this restriction. VirtualBox has functionality for sharing folders between your host Mac and the guest Mac (the virtual machine) so you could copy out the purchases that way. Kind of heavy duty, but it would solve your problem.

Seems like it depends on how many songs/albums you have for each artist. Some artists that I have only a few songs from have the same old style. If I have like every song from every album, then I have your problem. I think it just depends on the amount of songs you have.

I've found that certain songs are available in Apple Music, but once you add them to an existing playlist it becomes un-syncable. Also it can't be shared. This is a real pain, specially because there is not warning as to which song is causing the issue. For example, if you don't own Ed Sheeran X album, try adding Sing. Boom.

The currently playing song shows up in a horizontal now playing bar. Click the three dots on the right hand side of the bar. Click on the album name at the top of the pop up menu.

You need to pay for iTunes Match. This uploads files and syncs them across your devices. If it it's greyed out on the other computer, then it's not fully uploaded.

Delete everything from iTunes and iCloud but choose "Keep files". Then reimport them and add them to iCloud again.


1

Backup the files and click Delete. That will remove them from iCloud. Then you can reimport them and upload them again. When you add them again, it may say "Removed" since you previously deleted them from iCloud. Just right click and add them to iCloud again.

Instead of deleting tracks one by one, you could take another approach. Select a genre, delete it (that is, all the tracks of that genre), and repeat.

iCloud recently has had updates done which you check the system status at here I had issues with creating new playlists from my phone. When I signed out and signed back into my iCloud account, this functionality came back. I am not sure if this will resolve your issue but could be an unseen issue as to why this may have happened.
