How to Bring Back the Star Rating in iOS 10 Music App

This was really bugging me because I don’t care for the Heart button Love/Dislike function in the latest versions of the Music app.

Therefore, to bring back the star rating in iOS 10 Music app, you can do the following:

  1. Open the iOS Settings app from your Home Screen
  2. Find the settings for the Music and open it.
  3. About the fourth item down is the “Show Star Ratings” switch.
  4. Switch it on.

When you enable the star ratings, you will find a new “Rate Song…” item when you tap on the song’s ellipsis button in the detail view of a playing song, with which you can rate the song with stars instead of Love/Disliking it.
