As the arrival of Apple Music with the release of iOS 8.4, users can enjoy much more new features than before. Apple Music itself packs in a lot of different features, including the music streaming, an online radio and a social feature called Connect that allows fans to engage with artists in a more direct and personal way. But those who aren’t interested in the social feature can remove it from the iOS 8.4 Music app entirely. Here are tips to remove Connect from Apple Music in iOS 8.4.
To get rid of Connect, open the iOS Settings app, choose General, then Restrictions. If you haven’t enabled Restrictions on your iPhone or iPad, you can do so by creating a new 4-digit pin code.
After Restrictions are enabled, uncheck Apple Music Connect. This will instantly remove the Connect menu from the Music app.
Users who do not subscribe to the paid Apple Music service can also hide it by disabling Show Apple Music under the Music menu in Settings.
Minimalists looking for an especially clean and simple Music interface can disable both Apple Music and Connect, resulting in just three parent menu items in the iOS 8.4 Music app: My Music, Playlists, and Radio.
