iCloud Music Library Data Loss ➝

Joe Rosensteel:

Apple has provided no way for users to revert changes that are being made in iOS, and no mechanism to recover deleted data. That really bothers me because if an automated system is going to make changes to optimize my data then it’s never going to be 100 percent accurate. Dropbox is really close to perfect these days for maintaining the integrity of my data, but they still have mechanisms to recover files and revert versions.

I’m more than a little worried about transitioning away from Apple Music once my subscription runs out at the end of September. And its sad that I feel like I should have 2-3 backups in place just to make sure I don’t lose any data.

I hope Apple does what it needs to in order to repair their reputation for me — a year or so of solid software releases would help tremendously.
