    Whenever I ask Siri to find me music by an artist, it opens up iTunes instead of Apple Music.

    I've just re-subscribed to Apple Music after renewing a mobile plan, but since then Siri seems to want to open iTunes instead of Apple Music.

    Does this happen to anyone else??

    Do you have Show Apple Music Features and iCloud Music Library enabled on your Mac in iTunes?

    Ok, I think my Apple Music subscription wasn't properly registered....Needed to sign up on my older 6S for some reason. I was then able to turn on iCloud Music Library.

    Siri now opens Apple Music as it should.

    Ahh, it's doing it again.

    Weird thing is that the iPad has much more success of going to Apple Music instead of iTunes Store.

    I ask "Hey Siri, show me albums by >artist<" & the iPad finds them in Apple Music, but the iPhone opens up iTunes Store.

    Even if I say the above & end it with "....in Apple Music", Siri says she can't do that & suggests I either open Apple Music (which doesn't find anything), or that she can search the iTunes Store...
