Not all new things are better.
If you are dreaming to have the newest Apple iPhone 13 or already had your model in today’s Sept. 24, here is a slight problem you are about to encounter. Turns out, not everything is functional on the new iPhone 13 model. New reports suggested that the device’s Apple Music is experiencing a bug once you restore your phone from a backup. What does this mean?
Apple Music bug
In a new report from Digital Trends, Apple is issuing a warning to all new users of iPhone 13 and even those people with the iPad 9th gen and iPad mini 6th gen. Customers around the globe who are using those mentioned devices are probably experiencing an Apple Music bug right now. And Apple is aware of that issue.
On Thursday, Sept. 23, the tech giant revised its “support page” to make a warning to those new users of the device. The warning states:
“If you restore your new iPhone or iPad from a backup, you might not be able to access the Apple Music catalog, Apple Music settings, or use Sync Library on your new device,” the tech giant said on a new support page, adding, “To resolve this, update your new iPhone or iPad.”
Though it is normal for a new phone to require users for an update, one thing that makes this case different is that Apple has not yet launched its newest iOS 15 security patch. That means new iPhone 13 users will not have the access to update it alone.
According to a different report from MacRumors, the said bug would affect the new users’ Apple Music catalog, Apple Music settings, or use Sync Library.
So, if you love listening to music on your iPhone, you’d better wait for Apple to fix this issue. Or use your other devices to do their job. After all, the older iPhone models reportedly do not have the same issue, compared to the new iPhone 13.
How to fix it?
Sadly, Apple only announced the said issue on their support page. But no further announcement on how to fix it.
Instead of waiting for Apple to have the fix, MacRumors said that new users could perform the update on their own. Let’s see if that works for you:
1. Go to Settings > General.
2. Tap Software Update.
3. Tap Install Now.
4. Wait for the update to finish.
iPhone 13 review: Is it really worth it?
Though we’ve already proven that not all things are good now on Apple’s new iPhone, there are still factors that would make you want to buy the model.
Based on the personal tech review of The Verge of the newest iPhone 13, two things are comparable to the new phone than the iPhone 12 lineup: batteries and cameras.
As reported, the new iPhone 13 has bigger camera bumps than the past iPhone models. The lenses are also “rearranged” to fit the wide-angle camera. When it comes to the batteries, on the other hand, have bigger sizes too.
The said new device has over 2 hours longer percentage life than the iPhone 12. For tech Visibility, that’s a good deal.
