apple music icon for ios 100594580 origApple on Thursday began rolling out a new Apple Music feature on iPhone and iPad that alerts users to new albums, EPs, and videos from artists included in their music library.

The alerts show at the top of the Library tab in the Music app, and given that they relate to content that's available in Apple Music, they're likely to be welcomed by most subscribers to the streaming service.

But even if you don't subscribe to ‌Apple Music‌, these alerts are still pushed by default to your device's Lock Screen and Notification Center, and may quickly become a source of annoyance. Whatever your preference, the steps below show you how to enable or disable these new release alerts.

  1. Launch the Music app on your ‌iPhone‌ or ‌iPad‌.
  2. Select the For You tab.
  3. Tap Notifications.
  4. Toggle the switch next to New Music to suit your preference.

Apple Music
Alternatively, you can turn off all notifications from the Music app by launching the Settings app, selecting Notifications -> Music, and switching off the toggle next to Allow Notifications.

Is there a way I can also stop Apple Music from bugging me to start a subscription every time I just want to listen to my own audio tracks?
Head to Settings, Music, and turn off "Show Apple Music". It's a lifesaver to remove the nagging.

I really don't like how Apple is pushing Apple Music. I already have all the music I want in my library. I don't want streaming. I don't want to pay a never-ending monthly charge for something that isn't absolutely necessary. Leave me alone.

What does “Show in Library” do exactly?

Received one of these alerts yesterday I thought it was a bug because I don't subscribe to Apple Music. Seems kind of desperate of them to send these ads to us.

Problem is I have yet to see anything in the Library tab. Guess it’s not released to all
