    So I updated to iOS12 but all the old albums I had synced from iTunes into my Music app are greyed out and when I try to play them I get an error message. Is anyone else experiencing this issue? Is there any known fix for this?

    iOS 12 isn’t ready for reliable use yet. It exists in beta so developers can test it to find bugs that need fixed, isolate what causes those bugs, and submit their observations and perhaps methods of fixing the bugs to Apple.

    It also exists so that developers can experiment with new code in iOS and get an idea as to what changes they might need to make to their own programs to establish iOS 12 compatibility.

    It does not exist for the purpose of upgrading our primary devices just to be first on the block to have the latest.

    It is generally assumed that if you’re using a developer beta, that you understand that it is broken. And that you know how to troubleshoot.

    It is not an assumption, that it should do anything reliable. Or that anybody can help you to get it working.

    Isolating details and submitting your assessment of the problem to Apple is the presumed next steps.

    Apple can then try to recreate your problem, see if your ideas of repairs might work, and release a new beta to be evaluated.

    I know it's a developers beta, I'm just asking if anyone knows if there is any known way to get it fixed.

    Mine works normally. All are old songs and albums. No greyed out one. iOS 12 beta 1.

    Resync the songs from iTunes. The local files may have been deleted. By chance, did you turn on Apple Music?
