Apple Music might not work if you restore your iPhone 13 or iPad mini from a backup

There is yet another bug with the recently announced iPhone 13 line-up, iPad mini 6, and iPad 9 which causes Apple Music to not function properly if you restore any of these devices from a backup. Apple is working on a fix and will release it with a new software update soon.

This bug has been revealed as per a new support article on Apple’s website which explains that restoring a new iPhone or iPad from a backup might cause the Apple Music catalog, settings or library sync features to be inaccessible.

Restoring an iPhone 13 from a backup can break Apple Music

The following devices are impacted by this bug, as reported by Apple:

Apple has not really shared any workaround but we can only suggest that if Apple Music is important to you and you are about to unbox and set up your new iPhone or iPad, do not restore from a backup yet. Wait for Apple to release the new software update, which we expect to be in the form of iOS 15.1 or iOS 15.0.1, for all these new devices, and only restore from the backup once your device is updated.

This is not the only bug that impacts the new iPhone 13, iPad mini 6, or iPad 9 models. Restoring any of these devices from a backup might cause widgets to reset, so you might really want to wait for the software update.
