    Sorry to vent here - but I am flabbergasted that Apple Music made one simple change that now makes the service so much more difficult to enjoy.

    I am a musician - every night, using iOS9, I would add songs directly from Apple Music to an Apple Music playlist to listen to the next day in my commute. It was so simple to do.

    Now you have to touch a + sign, download the song, then go to recent additions, then add to a playlist.

    You can directly add an entire album to a playlist, but how frequently do you want to do that?

    I can't think of any reason to do this other than to keep data streaming down. Severely disappointed in what was a great service, for me.

    This isn't limited to just music, by the way, this sentence summarizes almost all the new features in iOS 10.

    From the Home button's inverted workflow, to burying Siri dictation an extra click into iMessage, to white notification boxes that create too much light in a dark room, to wasted space in text compose windows, it is amazing to think that Apple once made the user experience paramount. I don't know what they're thinking.

    Apple has added 5% more functionality for 50% less convenience. It's brutal.

    When you are looking at the song list just hold your finger on the song and a menu will pop-up with the option to add it to a playlist. Works on iPhone 6 perfectly fine.

    Yes I just joined to post this! But THANK YOU pjarvi. Apple tech help didn't know that! Hate seeing such big changes that make things that worked now more difficult. Thankfully there was a simple solution.
