Apple Music Style Guide Update

August 10, 2021

We’ve updated the Apple Music Style Guide to better organize how we group guidelines. Other notable updates include:

  • Renaming the Artists section to Names and Credits and broadening the range of roles and credits associated with a song, album, or music video.
  • Section 5.1 Original Release Dates definition has been updated.
  • Guideline 7.6 requires that artwork not promote hatred based on race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national/ethnic origin, or other identities.

See the What’s New in This Version for more information.
