What’s up with Apple Music?
I signed up for the Apple Music trial on my iPad, but I think it’s broken somehow. I can stream music, but whenever I try adding an album to My Music, it acts like it worked, but the album never appears in my library. It just disappears!
I have tried this on lots of different albums but it doesn’t seem to make any difference. I don’t have a Mac, so my iPad isn’t synced to another device. Can I reset things without risking losing stuff or taking forever to redownload everything? Noah Saoirse Incomplete or inaccurate library data has been a recurring feature of Apple Music since its launch. The 8.4.1 update to iOS in August fixed some of these problems and by the time you read this, iOS 9 will be out, which may fix some more. But if your problem is still there, start by turning off iCloud Music Library in Settings > Music. This will dump all the albums from Apple Music on your iPad (whether they were downloaded or just added to My Music).
Next, turn iCloud Music Library back on and they should download again. This involves some redownloading, but it’s not as bad as doing a full factory reset and downloading all your apps and data as well, which is probably your only other option. In the meantime, if Apple Music isn’t satisfactory, think about turning off automatic subscription renewal until more bugs are squashed.
Manage auto-renewal in Settings > App and iTunes Stores > Apple ID > View Apple ID.
