Jim Dalrymple Says “Apple Music is a Nightmare and I’m Done with It”
Fellow Canuck Jim Dalrymple from The Loop is angry over his Apple Music experience, noting the service “is a nightmare and I’m done with it,” venting off on his situation this morning:
At some point, enough is enough. That time has come for me—Apple Music is just too much of a hassle to be bothered with. Nobody I’ve spoken at Apple or outside the company has any idea how to fix it, so the chances of a positive outcome seem slim to none.
As if all of that wasn’t enough, Apple Music gave me one more kick in the head. Over the weekend, I turned off Apple Music and it took large chunks of my purchased music with it. Sadly, many of the songs were added from CDs years ago that I no longer have access to. Looking at my old iTunes Match library, before Apple Music, I’m missing about 4,700 songs. At this point, I just don’t care anymore, I just want Apple Music off my devices.
I trusted my data to Apple and they failed. I also failed by not backing up my library before installing Apple Music. I will not make either of those mistakes again.
So far, I haven’t had issues with Apple Music, but Jim’s situation sounds downright frustrating. I don’t have a massive music library and the majority of my listening is through curated playlists based on my tastes and Beats 1 occasionally.
Have you experienced any issues with Apple Music and your music library?
