How to replace the ‘Connect’ tab in Apple Music with ‘Playlists’

A component of Apple Music that really differentiates it from other solutions is its ‘Apple Connect’ functionality that lets you follow your favourite artists, in what feels like a mashup of following them on Twitter and Facebook, but in one timeline.

To do so goto Settings>General>Restrictions and enable restrictions, if you haven’t already.  From that screen simply disable ‘Apple Music Connect’.

  1. The connect tab, however, is a new service from Apple which is described as a place where musicians give their fans a closer look at their work, their inspirations, and their world. Similar to a social network, it allows users to “follow” their favorite artists and see additional content.
