    1. When playing a playlist, you used to be able to click on the name of the song or album and be taken to the album. Now it simply goes to the playlist and highlights the track you're playing.
    2. When playing music in the car, connected to power, the display used to simply dim but stay on, now it switches off completely after whatever period you have set in settings for Auto-Lock
    Can someone please confirm and I'll feed back on Apple's website.
    Thanks

    I can confirm both of those. And as for #2, the screen is supposed to stay on in the music app anytime the phone is plugged into power. I use it all the time to listen to music at work, and the screen used to always stay on before the update, although there were a couple of point updates in iOS 10 that broke that also...

    I’ve run into one that is stagger annoying. On my commute today I typically play Apple Music “radio” playlists and it would normally shuffle through a ton of songs for that station while barely repeating songs. However since updating, it will play about 20 songs and then repeat the same 20. Anyone else seeing something similar to this?

    Just irritating as I like to just let a bunch of music shuffle without needing to have it constantly repeat the same songs over and over.

    I've found a workaround for the 'Go To Album' issue.
    Press the three dots in the lower right hand corner THEN click on the song name.

    I am have this weird issue that when a song is playing and I lock the iPhone, when you wake the screen (not unlock the phone), the time elapsed only shows where it was when the phone was locked or if I go to the next song, it seems to stick one or two sec. Anyone else experiencing this?

    Just FYI, if you want to keep the screen on while playing music (until Apple fixes the player bug), you can use another music app that prevents the screen from locking, in the meantime. I've been using Cesium (
    https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/cesium-music-player/id924491991?mt=8 ) with good results the last few days (there's a setting for disabling auto lock in the settings).

    The only bug I’ve got so far is when I add new music on iTunes on my Mac it doesn’t show up on my iPhone. That used to work perfectly before but now I always have to turn off my iCloud music Library, turn it on again, loose all my downloaded media and then new music shows up...

    I haven't had that problem, but you can force an iCloud library update by using File -> Library -> Update iCloud Music Library
