iOS 10.2 brought the return of star ratings to the Music app, but not everyone is seeing the option. TMO’s staff had a mix of devices where some had the Star Ratings option and some didn’t. We found a workaround that forces the option to show.
Apple shipped iOS 10.2 on Monday. The update includes a long list of improvements and changes, including the new TV app. That app gives iPhone and iPad users unified access to their movies and TV shows in line with the app of the same name on tvOS for Apple TV. Apple also emphasized redesigned emoji and the addition of 100 new one. Bryan Chaffin’s favorite feature, though, is the return of Star Ratings to Music.
The current beta for iOS 10.2 includes an option to turn Star Ratings back on in the Music app! Even more interesting, it’s being returned as an option, allowing users who don’t care about Star Ratings to leave them be. Bryan Chaffin walks you through what we’re seeing so far.
