Apple Music Connect to Get Axed in iOS 10

May 11, 2016, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

It seems like Apple no more wants to provide the chance of interaction between artists and listeners. The Apple Music Connect feature that facilitated this, and which was launched along with the app, is now nearing its deadline.

The upcoming iOS 10 overhaul that is expected to hit the devices this fall is now said to be slashing off the Connect features in Apple Music. It will still exist in the eco-system. But unlike now, the feature won’t be represented through a distinct tab for itself.

Instead, the Connect feature will now come integrated with the ‘For You’ segment. Artist pages that are connected with the feature will still be carrying the Connect feature.


Launched during April last year, Apple Music Connect was touted as one of the key features in Apple Music, letting users to follow posts from artist that include photos, videos, and audios, including those from live tours. Users were also allowed to like and comment the posts from their followed artists.

Apparently, the Connect feature hasn’t invoked much interest from the users like expected. Some users have even cracked new ways to disconnect the Connect tab feature from Apple Music, which pinpoints the distaste among certain users for the feature. At least, we can say that the feature won’t be missed much with the new Apple Music overhaul.

As for the other refinements we are expecting, the upgraded Apple Music will also have features like a new neat and bold design, support for lyrics, larger album arts in song lists, a Browse tab, and more. The new version of Apple Music will be presented during the Worldwide Developers Conference this June.
