What Is Apple Music Replay?
Apple Music Replay is a feature that allows you to revisit your activity on Apple Music and review statistics such as which artist you listened to the most, which album got the greatest number of listens, and which song was your favorite.
Not only that, but at the end of the year, you get to enjoy your very own playlist comprising all the personal favorites that you have listened to the most throughout the year.
Apple Music calculates all of these stats by analyzing your music history throughout the year, compiling the number of listens per song, album, as well as artist. But the process is not that simple – the criteria of which songs and which streams count is very specific to ensure that your playlist is curated based only on your personal taste.
For example, you must be signed in to Apple Music using your Apple ID, should be playing music that is on the Apple catalog, and should have listened to the track, album, or artist for a certain period before it qualifies for Apple Music Replay. This helps to make your stats more accurate and specific to your listening habits and preferences.

Here we have shared the 5 solutions which you can use to fix Apple Music Replay not working issue. Let’s have a look.
Solution #1. Ensure That Your Apple Music Subscription Is Still Valid
Apple Music Replay feature is exclusively available to Apple Music users and if you unsubscribe to the service, your Apple Music Replay playlists will no longer be available to you.

Solution #2. Ensure That You Are Using The Correct Apple ID
The Apple ID you use to subscribe to Apple Music should be the same one that you use to sign in to view your Apple Music Replay stats at replay.music.apple.com.
Solution #3. Listen To More Songs On Apple Music To Create Apple Music Replay Playlist
If you have just joined the Apple Music service and you are a new Apple Music user, the system won’t create Apple Music Replay Playlist as it doesn’t have data about you.
So, start listening to your favorite songs on Apple Music and once the system have enough data about the songs, it will curate a personalized list featuring your favorite songs.
Solution #4. Make Sure That The “Use Listening History” Feature Is Enabled
Apple Music can’t curate a personalized Apple Music Replay playlist if you have disabled the “Use Listening History” feature.
So, if you are unable to access Apple Music Replay playlists, there’s a possibility that Apple Music is blocked from using your listening history. Here’s how you can enable the “Use Listening History” feature on your Apple Music App.
- Go to your iPhone and open its settings.
- In Settings, find the Music section and tap it.
- Here find the “Use Listening History” section and enable it.
Once you enable the “Use Listening History”, Apple Music will create an “Apple Music Replay” Playlist for you. Please note that Apple Music will only create the playlist of the current year and it won’t create the list for previous years as it won’t have access to your song data for previous years.
Solution #5. Update your iPhone or iPad’s Software
If the issue still persists, make sure that your iPhone or iPad is updated to the latest version of iOS available for download. Sometimes, outdated software can cause issues with the syncing up between Apple Music and Apple Music Replay. Go to Settings and tap on Software Updates to download the latest releases.
To ensure that the problem is not being caused by your browser, go to your Safari settings and clear out the cache and browsing history. Relaunch the browser and try accessing Apple Music Replay once again.
Last but not least, if all else fails, you can try contacting Apple customer support to get direct assistance from one of the company experts who should hopefully be able to help you resolve this issue.

Why Is My Apple Replay Inaccurate And How To Make It More Accurate?
Apple Music Replay is an exciting feature and many Apple Music users including me love it. However, Apple Music Replay has been reportedly inaccurate since its launch, and many users have reported the issue on many forums including Reddit and Apple discussion forums.
So, I did my research and after extensive research, I’ve found that the following are some of the factors which can affect the accuracy of your Apple Music Replay.
- Music Listening History – If Music listening history is turned off on your device, the system won’t be able to track the music you listen and it won’t be able to generate Apple Music Replay for you. So, make sure that your Apple Music Listening History is turned on.
- Listen to complete songs – Some users have also reported that Apple Music only includes the songs which you finish. For example, if you start a song and skip it before it ends, the system will not consider it for the Apple Replay. So, if your favorite song isn’t included in your Apple Replay, make sure that you listen to it on repeat for some time and the system will include it on the Apple Replay.
- Listen to Songs – Apple Music Replay provides insights into the music you enjoy. So, make sure that you regularly use Apple Music and once the system has enough data, it will generate the Apple Music Replay for you.
If you have applied the above solutions and still you are not getting the accurate Apple Music Replay, I’d recommend that you should log out and then sign in again. This method has reportedly worked for some users and it might work for you as well.
