    I have the U2 bloatware songs on my iTunes list on my iPad (iOS 8) thanks to Apple putting it there without my permission. They have not been downloaded. But I want them gone from the purchased list there. Not just hidden but totally gone.

    How would I go about doing this?
    I think many people would want to know how to do this as well.

    It'll be gone when mid October hits. By the way, it's not considered bloatware. It's not software that's installed on your device making it slower and/or taking up a lot of space.

    Can't you just swipe each song and delete them?

    On a related note, the album is pretty great, in my humble opinion.

    So a free album, that does not force you to download it is considered Bloatware? :rolleyes:

    With iPhones finally adopting larger screens and iOS opening up to third party keyboards and widgets, we need something to complain about! ;)

    Haha, it's actually not showing up for me. Only when I go into the iTunes store does it say that I have it but when I go into music to search for it it's not there.

    Note, I'm on iOS 7, not iOS 8.

    It isn't bloatware. It is also very easy not to display purchased items in the cloud.

    Having it hidden is not the same as having it removed. I have it hidden now.

    The way I understood the issue is when a user shuffles songs it includes playing them.
