I’ve got four sets of airplay speakers around my home which I stream music to from iTunes running on my Mac which lives downstairs in my study. This has worked well for years, until now!

Last week I upgraded my Mac to the latest version of MacOS known as Catalina and while this has generally been very smooth it has broken the iOS iTunes Remote Application.

The iOS (iPhone mainly) app is essential as it allows me to control the volume, select play lists, start and stop and skip tracks without going all the way back to the study.

I’ve logged this problem with Apple as as of today (October 13th 2019) I haven’t had a reply.

For now, the only workaround is to stream the music from the Music app on my iPhone, but that only works to a single AirPlay device and not the multi-room audio that we can enjoy from iTunes.

As soon as I hear from Apple or find a solution I will update this post.
