Apple Music in iOS 9 gets a much-needed redesign

Oscar Raymundo | July 30, 2015
Remember the good old days when the only thing you could do to a song was play it?

Now that some of Apple Music's most basic song functions have been designated to intuitive icons at the top, the More Options menu is less cluttered and easier to read. Each option button is also larger on the screen so you won't accidentally tap the wrong one. Perhaps most importantly, the More Options menu no longer causes minor anxiety whenever it pops up. There is one hidden option in the iOS 9 update, though. Scroll down and right below "Show in iTunes Store" you'll get the "Remove from My Music" option.

The options available in the More Options menu change accordingly, depending on whether you are listening to a song from the Apple Music catalog, the My Music library, or a random radio station. In iOS 8.4, for example, you could start a radio station from a song that was not in My Music. In iOS 9, it seems that you must first add a song to My Music (the plus sign) before being able to create a radio station. Once you add the track to My Music, you are able to start a station (radio signal), create a Genius playlist, and "Make Available Offline."
