    What the hell? Are you telling me instead of fixing that buggy mess (lately I never got it to work on iOS anymore) they finally just removed it?! The Apple Music story just gets 'better' and better.

    This is ******** Apple. That's the one feature that I hoped they would finally fix as I use it all the time. Nope, just remove it. Getting closer and closer to abandoning iTunes.

    I assume you are talking about the iOS app. Home Sharing still works just fine on iTunes on the mac.

    Yes. The iOS app. Used to work great a few years ago. Then started having trouble loading my large library. Still worked like charm on my 1st gen iPad with ios5. It was a very convenient feature when working.

    Most likely they want us to use the music in the cloud feature so there is no need to connect to other computers.

    Then I will find a third party app to get it done I guess. I don't want my music in the Apple cloud unless it can be in Apple lossless. I may be in the minority but the more Apple steers users towards the cloud and takes away useable features, the more likely I will use something else.
