Apple Music has many issues and errors, a few days ago I faced error code 16913, and recently, I have faced Error 1852797029. 

It was obvious, I hadn’t a solution once I searched a lot about this error on the internet. 

Lucky! I got some contextual information! 

With the help of the information that I gathered from many forums, social sites, and web pages, I managed to resolve the error for myself! 

Honestly, I didn’t have any idea why I was getting the error when I plugged my headphones into my iPhone. 

My research made me comfortable when I read some very honest queries raised on various forums and official sites.

Compatibility issues could be one of the severe causes of getting the error code (1852797029). In most cases, users are getting this error while they use an incompatible headphone or earphone(third-party). Incompatibility could arise if you will use a third-party music-listening device that is not recommended by Apple.

So, always try to use a device to listen to music on Apple music that supports your device and is compatible.


Sometimes, there could be no incompatibility but could be a software problem. 

If you are running an outdated version of your device software or the Apple Music App, the songs playing could be hindered, and an error could appear. 

Newer versions of your device software come with pre-bug fixing, so do lie on outdated software, always use an updated version.

Not only your device software but I will say to check the Apple Music app. An update for the app may also be launched, so check and update the app. 

After checking your system software and the app (for an update), launch the app and play the song for that, you were facing the error.


In my case, whenever I was connecting my headphones to my phone, my phone worked fine for a few minutes but, after some time, it started heating up and after a few seconds the error code was popping up. 

Usually, it can be a hardware problem as well as a compatibility issue, but in my case, it was a hardware problem.

The heating of your device could be caused by hardware as well as compatibility problems with an external device.

I confirmed this when I tried all the steps to fix the error code and spent hours without any help. Three days after the error, I went to the Apple center to check up on my phone. There they told me that my headphone jack was corrupted- that’s why whenever I am inserting my headphone pin, it is heating and throws an error code 1852797029.

Luckily, two days later, they replaced the jack with a new one, and the error code was gone. So this way, I fixed or you can say Apple center fixed the error for me.

But, there are some actions that you can take from your side and try to fix the error.
