Why is my Apple Music stuck on loading Mac?

Answered by Jeremy Urbaniak

When Apple Music gets stuck on loading on your Mac, it can be frustrating and hinder your music listening experience. There are a few possible reasons why this might happen, but don’t worry – I’m here to help you troubleshoot the issue.

First and foremost, let’s start with the basics. Restarting your Mac and your Wi-Fi network equipment can often resolve connectivity issues. Simply shutting down your Mac and turning it back on can refresh the system and clear any temporary glitches that might be causing the loading problem. Similarly, power cycling your Wi-Fi router or modem can help establish a fresh connection.

It’s also crucial to ensure that your Wi-Fi connection is strong and stable. Check if you have a good signal strength by looking at the Wi-Fi icon on your Mac’s menu bar. If the signal is weak or you’re experiencing intermittent connectivity, try moving closer to your Wi-Fi router or consider using a wired connection if possible.

If the loading issue persists, you can try disabling and re-enabling the Sync Library feature. To do this, open the Music app on your Mac, go to Preferences, and click on the General tab. Uncheck the box next to “Sync Library” and wait for 2-3 minutes before re-enabling it. This can sometimes refresh the connection and resolve any syncing problems.

Another potential solution is to sign out of your Apple ID in the Music app and then sign back in. To do this, go to the Music app’s Preferences, click on the Account tab, and then click the “Sign Out” button. After signing out, restart your Mac and sign back in to your Apple ID.

If you’re still facing the loading issue, it may be worth checking for any available updates for both your Mac and the Music app. Apple regularly releases software updates that address bugs and improve performance, so keeping your devices up to date can often resolve such issues.

In some cases, the problem may be related to your Apple Music account itself. If you have multiple devices connected to your Apple ID, try playing music on another device to see if the issue persists. If it does, you can try contacting Apple Support for further assistance. They have access to more advanced troubleshooting methods and can help you investigate the problem further.

When your Apple Music gets stuck on loading on your Mac, it can be frustrating, but there are several steps you can take to resolve the issue. Restarting your Mac and Wi-Fi network equipment, ensuring a strong Wi-Fi connection, disabling and re-enabling Sync Library, signing out and back into your Apple ID, checking for updates, and contacting Apple Support if necessary are all potential solutions to try.
