    Thanks for ruining my workout APPLE. FFS, how do I fix this issue? This just randomly started to happen for no reason right when I tried to play music at the gym.

    It doesn't work for non downloaded songs and downloaded songs.

    Freaking so inconvenient. This bug better be fixed before I go traveling -_-" image.jpeg

    Something downloaded on FamilyShare? Delete and re-download...

    Could there be some sort of restrictions enabled for some reason (even unexpectedly)?

    Delete what? I don't use apple's family share.

    I'm signed into my iTunes account.

    There couldn't be. I don't touch my Settingd app at all.

    There have been cases of some restrictions being active (or becoming active for some reason) even when they haven't been configured by the user. Might be worth checking if nothing else seems to do the trick.

    Which one of the restrictions would it be? Even the non explicit songs can't be played

    The explicit setting is certainly the main one that comes to mind, but might not have as much impact in this case--perhaps just making sure that everything looks as expected there with restrictions.

    It sounds like you're trying to play a song you didn't buy or own the rights to? This is a song you purchased yourself?

    Okay, this is a major point. Obviously this device is just being snarky, proving that it owns whatever it wants. I advise removing the offending song from the playlist so as to avoid further angering the device. It may crack its own screen.

    Downloaded from Apple Music for which the trial expired perhaps?

    The picture shows the song is from 2015. Songs bought from Apple don't have DRM anymore.

    Nah, it's just Apple Music.

    Lol good catch! Didn't even notice myself. Quite ironic.

    Nah, it just bugged out on its own.
    Had to reset my iPhone times multiple times to get it to work.

    I know right??? Like.GAWWWWW

    Looks like this is an issue mainly related to Apple Music.

    What happens if it's not fixed before you go "travelling"? More WTF threads/moments?
