Workaround for Apple Music “Recently Added” Limited to 60 Albums in Sonoma

  • Apple’s Sonoma update limited the Recently Added section in Apple Music to display only 60 albums.
  • No official workaround exists, but users can access the full library via
  • Caution should be exercised when using workarounds as they may change and could have implications regarding Apple’s terms of service.

With the latest OS update from Apple, Sonoma, many exciting features have emerged. However, not all changes have been met with enthusiasm. One notable alteration that has drawn criticism is the adjustment made to Apple Music’s “Recently Added” section.

In macOS Sonoma, Apple has introduced a restriction in the Music app, limiting the “Recently Added” section to display only 60 albums. This is a departure from the pre-Sonoma era, where users could enjoy infinite scrolling, allowing them to easily access their earliest added albums, some dating back to 2008.

It’s important to note that on iPhones and iPads, Apple Music never had the infinite scrolling feature. The primary motivation behind this change appears to be Apple’s effort to align the user experience across all its devices. While achieving uniformity is commendable, the decision to sacrifice user convenience by removing a valuable feature seems perplexing.

When you possess a dominant presence in a specific industry, you might feel empowered to make unconventional decisions, even if they seem counterintuitive to user preferences. In this case, the convenience of Apple Music users seems to have taken a back seat to the company’s pursuit of cross-device consistency.

Is There a Solution for Apple Music’s Recently Added Limit in Sonoma?

Addressing the Apple Music restriction in the Recently Added section of showing only 60 albums in Sonoma, it’s essential to note that, unfortunately, there doesn’t appear to be an official workaround for this issue. It seems this change was intentional, as the specific number, 60, suggests.

However, there’s a glimmer of hope. Should a solution or change emerge in the future, we will promptly update this post to keep you informed. So, please stay tuned for any developments.

Update: A Workaround Has Been Found!

Surprisingly, there is a workaround to bypass this restriction. Apple hasn’t imposed this limit on its website. You can still enjoy the Infinite Scrolling feature by visiting, which allows you to access your entire music collection, including older classics. This provides a convenient alternative to the limited Recently Added section on Sonoma.


In conclusion, while Apple’s decision to restrict the Recently Added section to 60 albums in Sonoma may have initially posed a challenge for users, there is a workaround available through, allowing you to enjoy the convenience of Infinite Scrolling and access your complete music collection. We will continue to monitor this situation for any future updates or changes.

Disclaimer: It’s important to note that workarounds, such as the one mentioned, may be subject to change or modification by Apple in future updates. Additionally, using unofficial methods to access Apple services may have limitations or implications that users should be aware of. Therefore, it’s advisable to exercise caution and ensure compliance with Apple’s terms of service when employing such workarounds.
