iTunes My Music – Allow explicit content disabled (personal library)

After updating to iTunes 12.2, I cannot play explicit content music (from my library). I have the following notice.

  • ITunes eject button
  • I can’t make simple playlists with music I buy since I turned on apple music. How can I solve this problem?
  • Is there a limit on the number of apple TVs that can connect to an iTunes account?
  • ITunes does not show iPad apps
  • How to recover data from iPhone backup files WITHOUT info.plist, status.plist, manifest.plist, manifest.mbdb and manifest.mbdx files?

Also, when I saw the explicit content option under parental controls, it was turned off.

Anyone have any idea how to disable this option and get access to explicit content?

  • Delete / Uninstall iTunes on MacOS High Sierra (v10.13)
  • How does Playlist sharing work?
  • iTunes 12 opens automatically when the CD has been inserted
  • ITunes volume significantly lower than the browser volume
  • Move my iTunes library file to a new machine

I had also contacted apple support for the same question and got the response from apple:

Dear Sahil,

Thank you for contacting iTunes Store Support, my name is Richard and I am a Senior Advisor here in the iTunes Store.

The previous consultant transferred this case to me to help you resolve this issue.

I understand that you failed to download explicit content from iTunes Store after iTunes update. I appreciate that this must be an inconvenience!

I understand that you have been able to access this content before and now you are unable. I too would be mad if this were me!

I have spoken to our investigation team and have been informed that, unfortunately, this is the intended behavior as your country’s laws no longer allow us to distribute explicit content.

I am very sorry for this inconvenience Sahil because I am sure it is not the answer you were looking for.

Thanks in advance for your patience with this.

Update to iTunes v12.2.1.16, seems to solve the problem… 🙂

It seems clear enough to me.
Apple is following the laws of the country you live in, presumably India judging by the number of Google hits I see for this problem.

Your only option would be to try to change your iTunes Store country – but that depends on being able to provide a credit card from that country.
