Apple does not build its apps like Apple Music for your convenience. Rather you are the product being sold, to those selling you stuff (Apple and all the creators from which they take 30% commission).
Apple Music is an advertisment app with disfunctional but just good just enough user interface to sucker you into using it.
Witness the screen below—all I want to do is to listen to my audiobook in peace. But after pausing and returning to it (every day and several times a day), Apple each time displays this crapware screen (which I have literally NEVER used), forcing me to take action just to return to where I was before.
