    Hello,

    as everyone knows, the latest iOS 9 beta now includes the new Music app with Apple Music support.

    Yesterday I made all of my tracks available offline via a playlist that contains all of my songs. At the top it said "xxx songs are downloading" (or something along these lines, my iOS is not set to English), and after that was done, I was able to listen to all of them with Airplane mode enabled.

    Today I got into my car and started my Apple Music playlist (it only contains songs I got from Apple Music). A few tracks were playing, but it turned out that around 80 of the overall 90 tracks went grey. So a few were still there, but the majority basically disappeared.

    I blocked the Music app for mobile data usage to save my data plan.

    What happened there and how do I prevent it in the future?

    iCloud happened. I have a very nice workout playlist and yesterday it was playing fine, but today half of the songs just get skipped. Sometimes it starts playing next track in the middle of current track. Some track are grey and they weren't yesterday.

    Its a mess.

    I have this exact same issue, very frustrating. I just left for a trip and made sure all my music was downloaded on my phone so I could listen to it. All of my music has the little offline icon in the corner but, when I would go to click on a song it would just grey out and/or the music app would crash. I just wish I could cancel my apple music account.

    Hu?

    It's currently free. You can cancel at any time.

    No, you can't cancel it until the trial is up. What you can do now is disable auto renewal which is not the same as cancelation.

    I know I've had a gin and tonic or two on this beautiful Friday evening, but why isn't it the same? You won't be charged if you cancel your subscription.

    This has been happening to me non-stop and it is infuriating. I can download an album, watch all the songs download, see it in my library, and then turn on "Show Offline Music" and it immediately disappears. If I turn that setting off and go to play the album (with no internet connection), it does not register the album as being saved to the phone.

    Another fun bug: I saved a few Apple Music playlists for offline listening yesterday. Today I went to my albums I have stored locally, and found that it had wiped most of them out. For example, I had Blur's self titled album saved to my phone. I saved a playlist containing Song 2, and Apple Music wiped out every song from the self titled album except for Song 2.

    If they can't get this together I am sadly going to have to go back to Spotify. I wish they had just used whatever Beats was doing on the backend instead of using the mess that is iTunes Match to try and do the legwork. I never had any issues with saving music for offline listening with Beats.

    RIP Beats Music.
