How to Unfollow Artists in Apple Music

How to Unfollow Artists in Apple Music

Apple Music's social networking feature Connect lets you follow your favorite musicians. They share things such as behind-the-scenes photos, lyrics they're working on, a new video, and whatever else interests them. When you add songs to your music library, by default the artists are automatically added in Connect. But you may not want to follow some of these artists. In my case, for example, I added Beethoven, but it seems unlikely he'll be sharing anything. You can change the default so that artists aren't automatically added. Doing so will remove all those automatically added. Or you can unfollow selected artists that were added by default. And you can add new artists to your list of those you're following.

To change the default setting or to change the artists you're following, in Apple Music tap on Connect and then "See who you're following."
