Part 2. How to Change Apple Music Artist Profile Picture
You can change Apple Music Artist profile picture either on the Music app on iOS devices, or on iTunes on Mac. Let's find out how to do that on iOS devices.
Step 1: First of all, open the Music app on your iOS devices. Then go to "For You" section and then click on the circular profile image icon on the upper right of the screen.
Step 2: Then navigate to the Manage icon. In the Artist Image section, you can upload a new image as you like. But please note that the image should be 2400 x 2400 and a .jpg or .png file.
Step 3: After that, you can crop and move the image to adjust how it will appear on your profile. When you are satisfied with the image effect, then select "Submit" icon to finish uploading.
However, the image you uploaded won't be changed immediately because there is a manual approval process for new changes in your Apple Music artist profile. It will generally take a few days to approve your change. When you see "Submitted for Review", that means the process is underway. Just wait patiently. Therefore, I recommend you to upload the suitable image so that you don't need to frequently change your Apple Music Artist profile picture.
