Fix 2. Update Your Device Software
Why is my Apple Music Sing not working on iPad/iPhone/Apple TV? The Apple Music Sing feature only works on iOS 16.2, iPadOS 16.2, and tvOS 16.2 or later. So, you should also update your software.
To update your iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV, go to 'Settings' > 'General'. Then tap on 'Software Update'.
Fix 3. Check If the Song Is Compatible
It is worth mentioning that not all songs support the singing function. However, Apple Music has not announced the number of songs that support Sing. Therefore, you need to manually check whether the songs you want are available for Apple Music Sing.
Step 1. Open Apple Music and choose the song you want to sing and go to the 'Now Playing' screen.
Step 2. After that, click on the 'Quotation Mark' icon.
Step 3. Check if there is a 'Karaoke' icon.
Fix 4. Disable Low Power Mode
iOS's Low Power Mode lets you use your device's battery for as long as possible. Thus, it automatically closes and reduces background app usage. Additionally, it disables some notifications and other features, most likely including Apple Music Sing. Therefore, you must check if your iPhone has low power mode enabled and turn it off.
Step 1. On your iPhone or iPad, tap on the 'Settings' app.
Step 2. Scroll down and tap on the 'Battery' option.
Step 3. Toggle off 'Low Power Mode'.
Fix 5. Reinstall Apple Music
Since this Sing feature is still new, there might be some bugs on the Apple Music app. And deleting and reinstalling the app is a very effective solution.
On your phone's main screen, touch and hold the 'Apple Music' icon > 'Delete App' > 'confirm'. Then you can re-download and install the Apple Music app from the App Store. Once done, check if the Apple Music Sing not working on iPad/iPhone/Apple TV problem is fixed.
Fix 6. Restart Your Device
A small bug in your system or application is the reason why Apple Music Sing is not working. Restarting the device is the easiest but sometimes the most useful solution.
If you don't know how to restart your Apple TV, do as below.
Step 1. Simultaneously press and hold the 'Back' and 'TV' buttons on your TV remote until the Apple TV status light blinks. For the first-generation remote, you need to use the 'menu' and 'TV' buttons.
Step 2. Unplug the Apple TV's power cord.
Step 3. Replug the power cord after 5 seconds.
Step 4. Turn to 'System' > 'Restart'.
Fix 7. Reset Your Device
If none of the solutions work for you, you can factory reset your iPhone as a last resort. Some users who had Apple Music Sing not working reported that a factory reset worked for them. So, you can also try this way. Don't worry as it won't harm the data and media stored on your iPhone.
To factory reset your iPhone, open the 'Settings' app > 'General' > 'Reset'> 'Reset All Settings'. Then open Apple Music and see if the Apple Music Sing feature shows.
