    Has anyone written up an exhaustive list of the Music App changes in 9.3? Where does that discussion happen? I wanna talk it up, man.

    Like what are the new little stars next to certain track numbers in the album view? What's up with the new song rating deal happening on the album art and the way that tapping the song title takes you to the album view? What else has changed? What do we wish had changed? I still wanna be able to add the rest of an album in one tap if I've only added a few tracks. Especially given much pre-album-release track availability has increased.

    I'm curious about new changes to the native app, not related to the Apple Music portion. Anyone?

    They moved the star ratings to be within the lyrics section. (They might be working on a partnership to include lyrics with Apple Music streamed stuff?)

    And yeah if you tap the song title, it takes you to the album, this makes perfect sense if you're shuffling.

    Skip when shuffling still doesn't work. :mad:

    Not noticing anything else that's changed at the moment. I'm not using Apple Music.

    Yeah, are lyrics still in this app at all? I haven't noticed them anywhere since iOS 9.

    Do stars like track 5 in this image show up on any of your albums? I'm guessing they signify popular downloads/streams on Apple Music, but I'm not sure.

    It's always been that if you tap the album artwork the lyrics stored in the track show up.

    And no, not seeing any stars on any of the albums here. You're probably right.

    I thought there was a mention in the early versions that tracks would get the popularity scale just like the tracks in the iTunes Store app?

    Haven't seen them though, something I miss from Spotify.

    They didn't include an actual scale, but I did just notice that there is a little star next to the track number of most popular songs on an album. Most albums only have one stared, but I have noticed multiple stars on a few albums.

    The popularity scale was once used in one 9.3 beta, but it made the right section of the songs extremely full. They removed the scale in the next beta and replaced it with the star, basically only showing popular songs in an album. (has nothing to do with your 5star rating)

    They also (finally) made it easier to add the rest of an album in one tap if a few tracks have been downloaded before.
    It basically shows the cloud download button even when a track has been downloaded already.

    I hope they change some fonts in the "New Section", it is a mess right now. And 3D touch on the bottom row would be nice, lets say if you press my music hard, you could quickly select: songs, albums, artists etc.
