Apple Music and the iOS App Store are having issues

If you are an Apple user, you may see some issues in the App Store or with Apple Music. Apple’s system status page shows issues affecting “all users” for both services noted since 11:41 ET without going into detail about what the issues are. In our tests, the App Store and Apple Music are both generally operational, but users have noticed issues for a few hours.

Posters on Reddit have seen problems with Apple Music, which lacks text information, Dolby Atmos and lossless sound from songs, where it should have these features, while some report that they are unable to play music even when downloaded to their local warehouse for offline listening. Some users said that logging in and out solved the missing lossless audio features for them, but not the missing texts. We were able to confirm the issue of lyrics as shown below.

9to5Mac previously reported that Apple’s privacy labels do not appear on many App Store listings, citing a source confirming that it was a bug that would soon be fixed. There are no official words about solutions or solutions – or ETA for when the problems can be solved.
