    To put it simply I was searching for a piece of music and while doing so safari pulled me to the iTunes Store and a pop up told me to change stores. I believe it changed me to the Danish store. Anyway that happened and now my entire Apple Music library was ripped away from me and it told me to change my store back. I go to settings and hit the iTunes and Apple Store tab and then hit my ID and sign in. When I hit the region button it tells me I have to cancel my Apple Music subscription first to change stores. I don't know how Apple could just tell me to switch stores and then when I do so they just screw my phone up so bad but they did. I'm guessing the only way to fix this would be to find something on the US only store and do the same thing again but I don't know anything that fits that description. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this or any music that is currently exclusive to the US store?

    I guess, pretty much, music in USA is generally available across the globe.

    Whatever, there should be some apps only available in USA. But unfortunately I don't know any of such.

    I don't have Apple Music and I have two accounts to cope with multiple regions. Looks like I am lucky to not use Apple Music.

    There are some apps that are US only that you could search in Safari to get the same pop-up. The last I came across was Dark Sky for iOS (it's a weather app)

    Is Hound (the Siri-like one) available in the US app store only yet?

    Open up the App Store. Search for an app that's only available in the US store. Try to download it and it will prompt you to switch to the US store. This happened to me last week.

    You have to cancel any subscriptions such as Apple Music, wait for whatever subscription you paid for to be over, and then switch the store. You can contact Apple iTunes Store Support for more information.
