Apple Music’s largely ignored Connect social network feature is getting a demotion when a previously reported-on overhaul of the streaming service is completed this summer, according to a new report. Originally envisioned as a major component of the popular app, Apple Music Connect lets artists share photos and videos with fans, who can then comment on or like the posts. But it has yet to click with artists or fans, leaving the prominently featured tab underutilized.
9to5Mac reports that when Apple Music gets redesigned -- as part of an iOS 10 overhaul -- Connect will move from its own tab to within the For You recommendation page. “Connect will still exist within applicable artist pages as it does today, but its demotion from the set of Apple Music tabs indicates that the feature has not lived up to Apple’s expectations from last year,” according to the report.
