As a music lover, I like to keep a tab on the latest albums, EPS, and videos from my favorite artists. Though Apple Music already had the feature to alert users about the latest arrivals, it wasn’t always spot-on. Many a time, it would send out alerts about new albums days or even weeks after their rollout. Thankfully, those days are gone for good! Courtesy the latest update, users can now enable Apple Music in-app notifications for new releases on iPhone and iPad. If keeping a track of the all-new albums also tickles your fancy, follow along to turn on this nifty but quite handy feature!

Enable Apple Music In-App Notifications for New Releases on iOS

With the in-app notifications enabled, the alerts about the latest releases will show up at the top right corner of the Library tab in the Music app. Thus, if any of your favorite artists roll out new albums, you can easily discover them through the notification banner at the top of the Library interface.

1. On your iPhone or iPad, launch the Music app.

On your iPhone or iPad, open Music app

2. Now, select the For You tab and then tap on your profile photo at the top right corner.

4. Finally, turn on the switch next to New Music. 

Finally, turn on the switch next to New Music. 

That’s it! Going forward, you will see alerts about the new albums from your favorite artists included in your music library arrive.

One thing worth noting is that even if you haven’t subscribed to ‌Apple Music‌, these alerts will show up on your iOS device’s Lock Screen and Notification Center. If you find them unnecessary, you can turn them off with ease. Just follow the same steps mentioned above and then toggle off the “New Music” switch in the end.

So, that’s the way you can enable or disable notifications for Apple Music new releases on your iOS device. As a user, I find it quite handy – pretty much in line with the time-synced lyrics that’s great for belting out in karaoke style.
