How To Fix Apple Music Configuration Errors

Apple Music has finally been released after months of anticipation. The service garnered a lot publicity recently when Apple got into a spat with Taylor Swift. Now that everyone has finally had a chance to use Apple Music, it seems like that it really can become the one-stop shop for all genres of music. Not only does it have ample variety, the quantity is impressive right from the start as well. According to reports, Apple Music has the top 100 Billboard songs, which is better than even a well-established service like Spotify.
