Controlling Apple Music on Your Mac with the iPad iTunes Remote App

Recommended Posts

This is weird, but the Remote app was working fine before the Catalina release, which is why I didn't react above. I have a screenshot I took of it for my new book (Take Control of macOS Media Apps, to be published today), but I went to use it this morning, it wasn't working. I've contacted Apple to see if they can tell me anything. I don't know if this is a bug in Catalina or if the iOS app needs updating. It's worth noting that the app is called iTunes Remote, and, while I can't imagine that they would drop support for the Music app on Catalina, it's entirely possible that they have given up on it. This would be a big shame. 

 

It's also worth pointing out that the Apple Watch app has the same problem, but it's a subset of the iOS app.

What's most surprising is that you can see and navigate a library, but you can't control anything. 

 

But, as I said above, in Mojave, you couldn't initiate playback from the app; however you could control it once it started.
