Lately, the Music app on my iPhone XR has been showing the "Join Apple Music!" call-to-action interstitial screen pretty much every time I launch it. Usually this happens when I'm in a bad-network area, too, so it takes a few minutes before it appears, preventing me from playing my locally-stored music and playlists.

I neither have nor want Apple Music, and I have disabled Apple Music on my device through the respective control panel:

And yet I still get the interstitial ad for Apple Music at least once a week, if not more. Is there any way to disable this "feature?"
