A few user reports as well as tests reveal that in Apple iOS 15 and later, Siri seems to have lost the ability to rate songs in the Apple Music app. Usually when you listen to songs in the music library, you can ask Siri to “give the song a five star rating or other digital sheet music”. The virtual voice assistant will do it without hesitation. The ability to tag songs with Siri in the Apple Music app was first introduced in iOS 8. When listeners listen to songs hands-free via CarPlay, exercise with AirPods, or create playlists note-based smart readings, they typically rely on this feature to score points. songs in their library.
However, reports on Reddit, the Apple Support Community, and some forums show that this feature is not available in iOS 15 or iOS 15.1. Moreover, it is also not available in the latest official version of iOS 15.2. Siri didn’t fulfill the request, the response is “I’m sorry I’m afraid I can’t do this”, or something similar.
It is not clear whether this is an intentional change from Apple or an intermittent server side issue after the release of iOS 15. However, it should be noted that iOS 15 and iOS 15.2 feature functional changes to Siri, involving Apple Music. In iOS 15, Apple changed Siri to handle some requests without an internet connection. It can perform quicker queries and identification when opening apps, setting alarms and timers, etc. Then, in iOS 15.2, the company introduced a new Apple Music voice control solution, which relies entirely on Siri for music playback and user interaction.
Apple no longer allows users to downgrade to iOS 15.1.1 or iOS 15.1
After the launch of iOS 15.2 in December, Apple no longer signs iOS 15.1.1 for iPhone 13 models. This means that users with the latest version of iOS cannot downgrade to iOS 15.1.1 or iOS 15.1.
It comes after Apple stopped signing iOS 15.1 for iPhone 13 models in November. Recall that the company released the iOS 15.1.1 update to address a bug affecting the current generation of iPhone. Now, since iOS 15.2 is available, iOS 15.1 and iOS 15.1.1 are no longer available for any model.
In case you missed it, the older version of iOS debuted in October 2021. This system comes with some features, some of which include COVID-19 vaccination certificates in the Wallet app. It also comes with SharePlay for Facetime, support for ProRes on the iPhone 13 Pro series, and more. The ability to turn off Macro mode also came with this update. If you or someone you know has updated to iOS 15.2 and is having trouble, unfortunately you will have to wait for a future update instead of rolling back.
