How to Disable Apple Music Listening History on iPhone and iPad

There are a couple of main reasons why you might think of disabling Apple Music listening history on your iPhone and iPad. First, to stop syncing your personal Apple Music recommendations across the devices. Second, to prevent your friends from discovering what you are streaming!

As a lover of music, I enjoy sharing my playlists with friends and also discovering what’s setting them on fire. However, I don’t think everyone likes to share their favorites with others. If you prefer privacy, there is a way to disable Apple Music listening history on iPhone to prevent your followers from finding out the tracks that you listen to.

Before you can go ahead with the steps, there is one downside you must know upfront. The music you play on this iPhone or iPad won’t influence your “For You” recommendations. If you don’t want your personal recommendations to sync across the board (or wish to keep them private), it would be apt to turn off the Apple Music listening history. Whatever let me walk you through!

That’s pretty much it! Henceforth, your personal recommendations won’t sync across your devices (connected with the same Apple ID). At the same time, your friends won’t see the songs that you are streaming on this particular device.

Later, if you happened to go back for whatever reason, follow the steps that mentioned above and then turn on the switch in the end.
