Why do Apple Music notifications just NOT WORK?
I believe this “feature” was implemented in iOS 11 that is supposed to notify you when your favorite artists release new music, when new shows you might enjoy pop up, and some stuff with friend activity.
Not once have I ever received a single notification for any of these things. Ideally, I would love if Apple Music notified you anytime an artist in your library released a new single, EP, or an album. This is something I’ve wanted for years but I’m still forced to use outside websites and manually enter each artist I want notifications on, or link to my Last.fm (yes, I still use that).
Not even the section under the For You tab that shows “new releases” does this properly. It’ll show a couple albums, MAYBE EPs, but never singles. A lot of the time it’ll even show me releases from artists I’ve never even heard of or previously listened to. Thanks for telling me Meaghan Trainor released a new album though. 🙄
EDIT: Here’s the Apple support article that give instructions on how to turn on/off notifications. It’s automatically turned on by default… not that you would have known that. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT208146
