iOS 5 beta 7 music not workingBreaking news – a lot of people around the world including me on iOS 5 beta 7 discovered that, when trying to play music or videos from the music app or video app (formally known as the iPod app), the artwork either shifts around without playing music, or it just doesn’t play at all. This is how you fix your music app in iOS 5 beta 7:

To Fix your Music in the Music App:
1) Plug your iDevice into iTunes
2) Under your devices music tab, de-select Sync Music -> Click on Sync (this should remove your itunes library from your iDevice
3) After completing step 2, go back to the music tab and re-select Sync Music -> then click on Sync
4) After completing step 3 your iTunes library should have returned to your iDevice
5) Try playing your music now from the music app. It should work.

To Fix Your Videos in the Videos App:
1) Plug your iDevice into iTunes
2) Under your devices Movies tab, de-select Sync Movies -> Click on Sync (this should remove your iTunes video library from your iDevice
3) After completing step 2, go back to the movies tab and re-select Sync Movies -> then click on Sync
4) After completing step 3 your iTunes video library should have returned to your iDevice
5) Try playing your videos now from the Videos app. It should work.
