    I did some adjustments to the music app to make it more bearable to look at. Check it out. What do you guys think?

    The one feature I want the most, is being able to Add to my Music from the lock screen.

    Apple Music is incomplete without it =(

    Works for me. I hate that it's so big. And so red. :rolleyes:

    The invisible button deletes music (for whatever reason). Maybe change it to a trash can?

    I thought a trash can would look weird on the now playing screen, so I opted to just do a greyed out cloud icon instead. It works because it shows that the track has been downloaded (being lighter), but it also remains a button if you'd like to "undownload" it (so to speak). It acts as a toggle button.

    It's just that Apple used greyed out buttons for "in progress". I do like your idea though, thanks for sharing!

    I've read about the 'invisible button' where is this button located in the music app?

    In the now playing screen, at the bottom left.

    There's about a dozen solid things I would change about the Music app design. Pink text color on the Now Playing screen is not one of them.

    Can't figure out why this button has made it into GM. Hopefully is fixed in public release of 10.0.1.

    We're already on 10.0.1. This is the version people are getting.

    Your version with greyed out button looks excellent! Really that's how it should looks like

    Wow complaining about some color.
    I'm listening to music not staring at the player.
    Some people have to much time :D

    It has nothing to do with the color. There is a functional button in the bottom left that is invisible for some odd reason and Apple isn't fixing it!

    "We", meaning beta testers, not the general public. You can't assume this bug will be in the final release of 10.0.0 or 10.0.1.

    10.0.0 'final' will be only on shipping iPhone 7's, 10.0.1 final will drop to public shortly thereafter.

    The iOS 10 player looks good to me.

    That being said, I'd shrink the controls and the song / artist name. Also, Apple was pushing blur in iOS 7 wherever there was content was behind other layer so I'd add blur to the playing card. Oh, well.

    If anything needs fixing, it's the music controls in the lockscreen. To call it an eyesore would be sugarcoating it.

    I don't know where you're getting your information from but, we're currently ON 10.0.1. The new iPhones are shipping with 10.0.1 and 10.0.1 will be available next Friday, so yes, the version everyone is getting is the same version we have right now, unless they change it to 10.0.2.

    We're not in Beta anymore.

    Apple, please allow us to rate and "heart" songs from now playing again as what iOS 9 does.
    I believe iOS 10 music app is moving backwards regarding functionality.
