Apple users who accepted the update to iTunes over the past couple of days are none too pleased with a problematic bug.
The new version, iTunes 12.2, was meant to better maintain your music library.
But one key component, iCloud Music Library, has to be enabled.
And in doing so, this component that is meant to sync your tracks actually scrambles the music in your library heavily.
Signs of this are mismatched album art, along with repetitive artist listings.
The issue also impacts those who’ve installed Apple Music on their iPhones as well.
To compound the issue, the iCloud Music Library also affects the original folder where all your music files are stored as well, causing the same jumble.
Music files not purchased through the iTunes Store are especially vulnerable.
Some sources have narrowed down a possible part of the problem – those who signed up for iTunes Match in the past seemed to be the ones who were affected.
Numerous Apple users took to social media and Apple-related forums to vent about their difficulties with the bug.
Apple had no comment about the bug.
