Due to Apple policy changes, we are no longer sending name change or rebrand requests to previously released content on Apple Music and iTunes as of June 8th, 2023. This means that we’ll be unable to submit a request to change your name through to Apple Music. All requests submitted to us before June 8th, 2023 will be processed by Apple Music in the coming months. We do not have an ETA for completion on any previously submitted request.
Due to policy changes, Apple Music does not currently support name changes for previously released content.
What options do I have?
If you have an existing name change request that was submitted before June 8th, 2023, then Apple Music will honor that request and process it within the next few weeks or months. Apple Music will be unable to support any new requests.
If you have an active name change request (submitted prior to June 8th, 2023):
You can wait for your request to be processed. Note that this may take a few weeks to a few months, depending on how long ago you submitted the request.
You can choose not to rebrand on Apple Music and keep your name as it is. If you would like to do this, please let us know so that we can remove your previous request from the list. Note that if this request has already been processed, we will be unable to update it.
If you do not have an active name change request (or you have submitted a request after June 8th, 2023) and you’re looking to change your name, you can:
Still rebrand with any other DSPs. You will be able to use the new name on any new releases on Apple Music, but note that previously released content will retain the name as originally released. This means your content will exist on individual artist pages.
Things to keep in mind:
If you choose to delete and re-upload your release to Apple Music, you will lose any existing data on your release, and it may not result in a name change as Apple Music no longer supports these.
Contacting Apple will not expedite your request.
