How to fix This Song is Currently Not Available on Apple Music

Method 1: Re-sign using your Apple ID

The first method will be sign out of your Apple account before signing back in. This will refresh the account’s underlying settings and rectify the issue that you’re dealing with.  Here are the steps to carry out this method –

  • Go to Settings -> Apple ID
  • Then, tap on Sign In -> Sing Out
  • Restart your device
  • Head back to settings and tap on Sign in to your iPhone
  • Lastly, type your account credentials to check if the bug is fixed

Method 2: Use the Search bar

The issue of songs getting greyed out is limited to the user’s playlist. You can still play the song from the search result. On one hand, this will address the issue but on the other hand, it might prove to be quite tedious to manually search for each song and play it.

Method 3: Re-add the songs

The issue might be attributed to a license change of the song. In such situations, your best bet will be to remove and re-add the song and it’ll rectify the underlying issue. To do that, you can import the desired songs to your playlist via iTunes on your PC. However, it’ll also require  fair bit of effort as you’ll have to add a few songs added to the playlist.
