Jimmy Iovine Adds Credence to Reports of Apple Working on Producing Original TV Shows for Apple Music

One of the biggest complaints of the Music app was that it was too heavily depended on the Apple Music part, instead of the music that’s on the device. The new update makes it easy to find the music that’s on your iOS device – whether it’s downloaded from Apple Music, or your iTunes library.

Well, Apple heard your outcry and they’ve brought it back, kind of. It’s not enabled by default and it’s only available if you upgrade to iOS 10.2.
