Underwater Audio's Guide to Apple Music
Not Recommended Due to Incompatibility Issues

This guide is for Delphin Users.

We recommend that first-time users follow this help page step by step, from top to bottom.

First we will cover what you need to use Apple Music on your Delphin, then we will cover first time setup, and finally we will provide troubleshooting resources.



What you'll need

A strong WiFi connection

While making any changes to your playlists or while downloading your music, you must be connected to a strong WiFi connection. We recommend being as physically close to your WiFi router as possible. Due to the efficiency of the waterproofing on a Delphin, it does have a shorter WiFi range than other comparable electronic devices.

An Apple Music account

To start you will need an Apple Music account. If you do not have one already, we recommend setting up an account on either your Computer or Phone to have an easier time with your keyboard and screen size. We also recommend creating your swimming playlists this way as well.

A paid Apple Music subscription

In order to listen to music in the pool, you will need a paid subscription to an Apple Music account that allows offline listening: Either the $9.99/mo Individual, or one of the Family or Student accounts will work. A free membership will not be able to play offline while swimming. This link will take you to Apple Music’s website for learning more about the different subscription tiers.

Apple Music is not the same as iTunes. If you have an Apple Music subscription, you can use the Apple Music App to listen to your purchased iTunes music.

However, you don't need the Apple Music App to listen to iTunes music on your Delphin. To download your iTunes songs, you can plug your Delphin into a computer and Drag and Drop files into the Music folder on the Delphin. You can then use one of these MP3 Apps (Pi, BlackPlayer, VLC) to listen to your AAC files from iTunes. Files purchased before 2009 will be protected and therefore not usable on the Delphin.

There is a workaround for older files, however, it requires you to delete your purchased files and then redownload them from Apple. This process can be tricky. Feel free to contact Apple for more information on how to do this properly.


Step 1

Download Apple Music onto your Delphin

  • If you're setting up your new Delphin for the first time:

Your Delphin may present an option to download the Apple Music app to you during the set-up process. Click on it to download.

  • If you have already set up your Delphin and want to add a new app:

Open the Help App by tapping Blue Question Mark on your home screen, and then selecting ‘Install Apps’. Apple Music should appear on the list of popular apps. Click on it to download.

 

(Tip: If you will be using Apple Music frequently, we recommend adding it to the home screen of your Delphin for easy access. To add applications to your home screen, hold down on your home screen until white borders appear. Select the space you want Apple Music or any other app to go, then select the app in the menu that appears. Once you are satisfied with your home screen, click the back button to lock in your settings!)


Step 2

Sign into Apple Music on your Delphin

Open Apple Music by clicking on the three white horizontal lines at the bottom of your screen and selecting the app. Follow the on-screen prompts until you get to a page that mentions their free trial. Click 'Sign In' in the upper right corner. This part can be a little tricky: Instead of pressing the 'Sign In' box right away, place your finger where it says 'Sign in with your Apple ID' and swipe up. This should bring up the boxes to enter your username and password. After you've entered in your login information, tap 'Sign In'.

 

(Tip: Your Delphin's screen may turn off quickly between steps during set-up. To make setting up and installing anything on your Delphin easier, go to Home Screen > Help App (Blue Question Mark) > Open Android Settings > Display > Sleep and choose a longer sleep time, like 10 minutes, to keep the screen from going dark too quickly. We recommend going back and turning the screen down to a lower time after you have finished setting up your apps as keeping the display screen on drains battery life.)

Remote Connect

Remote Connect is optional, but it makes logging into your apps much easier.

Remote connect will enable you to log into your apps using your iPhone or Android smartphone. This is extremely useful when you are getting your Delphin ready for the pool for the first time.

Step 3

Download playlists for the pool

Before you head to the pool, you will need to get your apps ready for offline use, as WiFi doesn't work in the water.

Here is a brief overview of the process

1.Open Apple Music by clicking on the three white horizontal lines at the bottom of your screen and selecting the app. Sign in to your account.

2. Choose a playlist from your music library.

3. Download the playlist by holding down on the playlist, then pressing 'Download'.

4. Once your playlist is downloaded, test it out by playing it with your WiFi off. If your music plays while your WiFi is off, you're all set!

(Tip: You can turn your WiFi off by swiping down from the top of your screen until you see a volume slider, and selecting WiFi to turn it off. Then, you can swipe that screen away by putting your finger at the bottom of your screen and swiping upward. You can also turn it off by going back to your home screen and clicking the blue question mark to open the Help App >Open Android Settings > Network > WiFi > then toggling WiFi off at the top right.)


Troubleshooting

Here are some troubleshooting resources to help get you swimming with music!

Apple also has great help pages and information.This link will take you to Apple Music's Support page if you need any other help, such as resetting your password, login details, or troubleshooting.

How do I remove a playlist from my Delphin?

On your Delphin, open Apple Music by clicking on the three white horizontal lines at the bottom of your screen and selecting the app. Go to your music library and hold down on the playlist you'd like to remove. Click 'Remove Download'.

If you select ‘Delete Playlist’ this will delete the playlist from your entire account, not just the Delphin.

How do I uninstall the Apple Music app on my Delphin?

On the home screen of your Delphin, click the three white horizontal lines at the bottom of your screen and scroll until you find your Apple Music app. Hold down on the app until a new menu appears. Select 'Uninstall.'We recommend turning your Delphin off and back on again after uninstalling.

My Apple Music is not playing while off of WiFi.

There are a couple of things that can cause this issue:

1. Make sure your playlists are downloaded onto your Delphin by following Step 3 above.

2. At least once a month, you will need to reconnect your Delphin to the internet to allow Apple Music to verify that your account is active. This will still matter even if you use your Apple Music account on your phone or computer. The Delphin Player has to be reconnected once a month to the internet so that any paid subscription apps (Audible, Spotify, etc.) can verify for billing purposes.
