How To Stop Apple Music From Automatically Playing

Whether you’re cruising with CarPlay or simply lounging with your AirPods, the sudden start of a song can be jarring. Fear not, for there are ways to regain dominion over your auditory experience.

How to stop Apple Music from automatically playing:

  1. Disable Autoplay in Apple Music: For iPhone and iPad users, simply open the Apple Music app, expand the current song being played, tap the icon with three dots and lines, and then deactivate the Autoplay (infinity) icon. This halts playback once your chosen song concludes. Mac users can achieve a similar effect by clearing their Playing Next list.
  2. Turn off Handoff: Handoff, a nifty feature that allows seamless task transition between Apple devices, also extends to Apple Music. By disabling Handoff in your iOS settings, you prevent the app from resuming play on other linked devices.
  3. Say Farewell to CarPlay: If you’re tired of your car hijacking your music choices, simply navigate to Settings on your iOS device, select CarPlay under General, and bid adieu to your car from the list of connected devices.
  4. Limit Data Usage: Concerned about data usage? You can restrict Apple Music to Wi-Fi or downloaded files by toggling off its access to cellular data in your device settings.
  5. Adjust AirPods Settings: AirPods users can customize their experience by tweaking settings such as Automatic Ear Detection. By turning this feature off, you can prevent your AirPods from playing music when you don’t want them to.

By implementing these adjustments, users can reclaim control over their Apple Music experience, ensuring that tunes play only when desired.
