    Several Apple Music subscribers this morning are experiencing issues when searching for new music in the Music app on iOS devices.

    Many users are reporting that typing a search query into the Apple Music search bar fails to return results, while others are receiving results but seeing a blank screen when tapping the track or artist name for further information.

    Quitting the Music app does not solve the issue, nor does restarting the device, while iOS version does not seem to be a factor either.

    The problem is trending on Twitter and in Apple Support Communities discussions, and is affecting users around the world, but appears to be restricted to iOS at this time, since Mac users are unable to replicate the issue in the iTunes desktop app.

    The issue looks to be with Apple's servers and will likely be resolved when the service is corrected on their end.

    That sucks. No music discovery for today, I guess.

    Since they killed free iTunes Radio, this is totally useless for me anyway. I guess that's a positive, right? :D

    Same issue here on 6 family devices. After the Safari Search bar crash issue last week now this I am starting to lose some confidence that Apple has their act together. I mean really.

    I'm inventing new ways to access what I want in music, without using the search function!!
    And I might have found a trillion bugs already!! Because the search was there to avoid these bugs, not to actually make search!

    You can always use the superior service, Spotify, as an alternative. :-D

    Better music discovery. 320 Kbps higher quality tracks. More intuitive UI. Free add supported tier. Family subscription support.

    Literally the only con of Sporify vs. Apple Music is that it doesn't have Siri integration, but that's only because Apple holds the key to that castle and they aren't letting anyone in.

    Oh and the fact that Spotify is $24.99 a month for 4 users as opposed to $14.99. Big difference.

    I'm experiencing this too and have all day but as a tip, use Siri. It worked for me just now.

    Funny you should mention Siri integration. It's a good backup in this case. ;)

    True. But as this article proves, you get what you pay for :)

    There's also something to be said about more royalties going toward artists. 70% of Spotify's revenue goes to pay record labels and artists.

    It'd be bigger news if things on Apple Music actually worked.

    The best thing about Spotify vs Apple Music is that Spotify is its own distinct app, rather than trying to roll it all into one app. I like keeping my own music collection distinct and separate from my "rented" music.
