Hi all, like everyone else I'm experiencing problems with ios 5. Using the iPod (music app) on my iPhone 4, it isn't functioning properly.


I play a track hit f/fwd and it will skip 3 tracks then eventually not play anything . Reset the play list and it is ok for about 5 mins efore it freezes again. I have reset my phone to no avail. I closed the app down- that does nothing either. Seems i only get a max of 2-3 songs  efore it crashes. My wife's phone which synchs to the same conputer is fine.


Any suggestions?


Thanks in advance

iPhone 4, iOS 5

    Unfortunately, no suggestions. Just chiming in to say that you are not alone. I'm having the same issues with playing music on my iPhone 4 since I upgraded to iOS 5. I am also showing a different song on the screen than I am hearing after the first song and, like you, the music just won't play after about three songs.


    Hope they get this one fixed soon!

    My music app is all messed up. Runs so slow art work moves slow and freezes up and doesn't load correctly. My phone is about worthless till they correct issues. Having to use old droid. Have Verizon IPhone 4.

    I have a worse problem after the upgrade. The system took over an hours to sync all the music, but when the app is opened, the screens is blank. All it has is the "Store" button on the bottom. When iPod was here, the music played fine, now it seems I have nothing except a 23GB memory hog and no tunes. Anyone have an idea on how to get all them tunes to show up and be playable?

    Exact same problem... but I found a solution:


    Altered from original solution from Emily P:


    Okay, mine now works here is what I did.


    • plug in the iPhone, iPad etc
    • in iTunes select the phone or iPad
    • Under Summary uncheck "Sync with this....."
    • Under "Music" uncheck the "Sync Music"
    • Sync
    • Let it remove all the songs, dont worry it will come back no problems.
    • Once that is all done all the music on the phone or ipad should be gone.
    • Now check them both back on, sync, and everything should copy back onto it.
    • Working now !!!!!

    I am having the same issue with iPhone not playing music properly after iOS 5 update.  I tried removing all the music from my iPhone and then re-syncing it did, but that did nothing to help.  Any other suggestions?

    After letting iTunes update and re-sync with iPad again, then things started behaving. The iOS5 removed iPod and installed a new music player. I think it is the same player with a facelift.


    Anyway, once the "glitch" settled down, I haven't had any issues. I think it was a miscommunication between the old iTunes on the iPad and the updated OS. After they were in sync, I was able to update the other apps.
