Apple Music: Source Unavailable – iOS 16

When consumers try to listen to music on Apple Music, they frequently get a “resource unavailable” message. You can play about 5 to 7 songs in a row before you get the error and can’t play the music. Even after restarting the application, you still see the problem warning after playing some songs. Users from all over the world filed this complaint.
