[Update: Resolved] Music issues in iOS 5.

October 14, 2011

After upgrading to iOS 5 I’ve run into a few issues playing some music files. Several albums simply won’t play. When you attempt to play one of the affected songs the album art and text displays but the audio is actually from the next track. Angela is having the exact same issue with the same files on her iPhone, however her iPad appears to be unaffected.


I was able to isolate the issue to songs that had been recorded at higher bit rates. I was using the option “convert higher bit rate songs to 128 kbps AAC.” There must have been a bug related to this setting and the iOS 5 update that rendered these songs unplayable. The resolution was to simply remove and resync my music with the iPhone.
