How to get your Likes back in Apple Music after upgrading your iPhone

Apple Music Likes Lock screen

I woke up this morning to the sad realization that all my Apple Music Likes had disappeared. Hundreds of little red hearts that are supposed to make my Apple Music experience more tailored to my tastes were gone. I didn’t really connect the dots right away as I assumed nothing had changed in my set up between my old iPhone 6 and my new iPhone 6s, but as it turns out, a simple tap of a button fixed everything.

By now, you might have figured what my problem was. If so, congratulations, you are much sharper than I am at figuring out the obvious. If not, then read on.

If like me you have lost your Apple Music Likes, don’t fret because the solution is pretty quick and simple. Just go to Settings > Music, and turn iCloud Music Library on. This will sync your Apple Music songs, playlists, Likes, etc, between this device and all other devices where you have this feature enabled.

Obvious indeed. So obvious that I assumed this was on by default when I signed in into iCloud on my new iPhone.

Thanks Danielle for your help!
