Question: How to get Music off iPhone lock screen

I have a IPhone X. Yesterday, all of a sudden, the widget for Apple Music began appearing on the lock screen. It takes up most of the lock screen so new notifications are pushed down and barely visible without scrolling. I cannot figure out how to remove the widget from the lock screen. Any help would be appreciated.

iPhone X, iOS 11.2, null

This video is the perfect answer to my problem, I recommend everyone watch it. I have my Music lock screen image removed now, and so I can see my beautiful puppy, instead. It is too bad Apple doesn't provide this information for us, and we had to go to YouTube for it. I wasted twenty minutes of my time going through their discussions site looking for a solution before findings this excellent response.

Thank you, Uddhabay!

This recently happened to me on my iPhone running iOS 11.2.5. The solution was easy, but took awhile to discover. I went to setttings, then scrolled down and selected the Music app. On that screen, I de-selected “show Apple Music”. That did the trick and Music is no longer dominating my lock screen.

SOLVED - Yes, you are right. As soon as I "upgraded" to 11.2.6 the music widget was back. But I think though I have the answer now.


Go to settings>Face ID & Passcode - Go to "Allow Access when when locked" which is near the bottom and turn off 3 things - Today view, Control Centre and Reply with Message. It shows up if music is playing but disappears if the music is paused but only when it is paused when the phone is unlocked.


If this fails turn off Home Control as well.

I did all of those as much as I could actually do it on iOS 9, which I am stuck on. I want the Music widget to actually show when I am playing music but not to show when I am not playing music. I never saw the today view

in the touch ID section I think that's what was doing it, i'm not sure which one was actually doing it, it has been driving me crazy.
