A weird little bug has made its way into Apple Music over the last day or so that makes the service randomly skip songs during playback. I first noticed this last night while playing music on my Apple TV, and earlier today on both my iPhone and Mac.
A quick Twitter search showed that was indeed not the only one in this boat, and after contacting Apple, I have learned that the company is aware of the issue and should fix the problem in the next 72 hours.
It can be so annoying when a web page you’re trying to visit doesn’t load. There are many things that could be to blame for the problem, and there’s a list of steps you should take if you want to figure out what might be causing it.

Security software development firm Malwarebytes has just exposed what could be the first known case of Mac malware for the year of 2017.
It appears to be a highly antiquated piece of malware. In other words, it’s not super advanced and it’s using methods to infect machines that are so well-known that only a small number of unsuspecting users would even fall victim to it.
New devices like Apple’s AirPods and Beats Solo3 headphones are among some of the simplest Bluetooth devices you can use with your iPhone, iPad, or Mac, thanks to the new pairing process that’s made possible by the proprietary W1 chip. But they’re not perfect.

While the number of people affected isn’t known, it goes without saying the issue was affecting a decent number of users and kicked up quite a bit of controversy.
It’s unknown if the problem is related to a software glitch simply displaying the incorrect battery percentage or if the battery inside the case is actually draining more quickly than it should be, but either way, seeing 30-50% drainage after a full charge and just a few hours of idle time is really getting under users’ skin.
Have you ever saved a note in the iOS Notes app and then expected to see it sync across all of your devices via iCloud only to find that it didn’t? Maybe notes don’t sync between your iPhone and iPad, or maybe they don’t between your MacBook and your iMac, or a combination of these devices.
iCloud can be very finicky, especially when it comes to syncing your notes, and sometimes you have to take troubleshooting matters into your own hands to fix the problem.
