The user added that an error popped up when the Apple Music application was selected, which read. ‘This app is only playable on PS4.’ This particular error is quite interesting as this error is used as the standard error message whenever an application for the PlayStation 5 is not ready to use.

The inconsistency alongside users not being able to get the same prompt twice suggests that Sony is in very early stages of testing with Apple Music. This is not the first time we might see Sony collaborating with Apple. Sony and Apple had collaborated with the Apple TV’s promotional for PlayStation 5 owners.
