Tip: Want less Apple in your Music?
Warning: This story has not been updated in several years and may contain out-of-date information.
If you’re finding Apple Music a little bit too much to take in, and would rather just go back to your habit of listening to your own music, well, there is some recourse, but not a whole lot. (You can’t, however, go back to iOS 8’s previous Music app–but let’s all agree that’s probably a good thing.)
To disable some of Apple Music’s more prominent features, go to Settings > Music and turn the Show Apple Music slider to Off. Next time you launch the Music app you’ll see a simpler set of toolbar options: My Music, Playlists, Radio, and Connect.
So you can’t escape Apple Music entirely, but if you’re looking to restrict your musical experience, it’s a good place to start.
