Apple Music: Resource unavailable – iOS 16

When consumers try to listen to music on Apple Music, they frequently receive the “resource unavailable” message. You can play around 5 to 7 songs in a sequence before getting the error and being unable to play the music. Even after restarting the application, you still see the problem warning after playing some tracks. Users from all across the world filed this complaint. This occurs frequently on both Wi-Fi and cellular data, nevertheless, it occurs more frequently on Wi-Fi.

  • Close the application completely, wait for 30 seconds, then open the application and start playing the song again, pick up where you left off.

  • Uninstall Apple Music from your device and then install it again. this usually solves the problem, if there were issues within the application.
  • Check if the Apple Music service is down by going to the Apple Support System Status Page. If you find a red triangle in the Apple music option that means it is out of service, and there is nothing you can do about it.
  • Restart or reboot your iPhone device.
  • Follow this process: uninstall Apple Music > sign out of iCloud and all Apple services > restart your device > sign in to iCloud > install Apple Music.
  • If there is a Wi-Fi issue then you might want to consider checking your connectivity, as Wi-Fi might not provide enough speed.

  • Consider this as the last resort: Downgrade your device from iOS 16 to the previous software update and see if the problem still occurs. If not, then this was a software update problem. If the problem still continues after downgrading your device to the previous version, then it is safe to assume that there is some problem with your hardware. You might want to contact Apple care support for that.
