I signed up to the Apple Music trial and have just noticed that all of my music has been copied to the cloud (without any warning or confirmation that I wanted this to happen). I now want to stop the trial subscription and go back to ‘normal’ iTunes/music library but also this does not seem to be possible.
None of the methods I can find for unsubscribing from the trial using either iDevices or iTunes work as there is simply no option to turn the trial off so it looks like I need to wait until January 4 when the trial expires to regain control of my music library.
To put it bluntly this pisses me off, I was never ask if I want to copy the music to the cloud and certainly did not give my permission for this to happen. (I only found that this had happened as I have just done a clean install of OS X on my MacBook and saw all the music items with the little cloud symbol on them).
I religiously back up things prior to a rebuild and obviously have all the music and will copy it back so as to restore my library to its original state but the fact that this even happened (the copying of music to the cloud) was done without any warning or permission which is a privacy breach in my view.
I’m also going to try and send this information to Apple to have them explain how/why this happened but don’t expect any response.
