Updated Hidden Reason Codes

June 26, 2017

Content may be hidden from Apple Music and the iTunes Store if it doesn't follow the standards outlined in the Music Style Guide. Note the following changes:

  • Hidden: Curated Artist. Previously called Hidden: Artist Cleanup. To ensure your content displays on the correct artist page, provide the Artist ID during delivery.
  • Hidden: Misleading. This new reason code is used if content is designed to mislead customers by mimicking popular content or search terms.
  • Hidden: Repeated Submissions. This new reason code is used if multiple copies of the same content is submitted with slightly different titles or artist names.

To view a list of your content that's been hidden, download a Catalog Report from iTunes Connect.
