No matter young or old, male or female, people would like to play music in a car in order to keep the driver awake, avoid long silence when you don't know what to say to the passengers or enjoy music time when hitting the traffic jam. Now, as many cars have Bluetooth stereo systems so it's very convenient to listen music in the car, which means once you get into the car, it will automatically start to play Apple music in the car from your iPhone.

For whatever reasons you want to turn off apple music autoplay, you may find that your iPhone doesn't provide "Turn off autoplaying music over Bluetooth" switch or similar button directly. But don't worry, I'd like to introduce some easy ways to stop Apple Music from automatically playing in car. The following methods are classified into two kinds, you can choose either setting your car or iPhone in your preference.

If you do need to delete the Apple Music app, then you can try to use another famous streaming music services such as Spotify and Pandora.
Option 5. Send Apple Feedback
Except the above methods, you can tell Apple Inc. about the problem and ask Apple Inc. to put in a setting switch to make it happen. Maybe you are the one who can persuade Apple Inc. to add such setting switch.
