Apple Music allows you to download tracks or entire albums for offline listening on the iPhone, Mac, and PC. But if you’re worried about storage on your device, it’s best to stream Apple Music and only download select songs you listen to the most.

When you add a song to your library from Apple Music, it doesn’t mean that you automatically want to download that song to your device too. After all, those tunes can take up a lot of storage space especially if you add more and more over time. Here’s how to stop Apple Music from downloading songs added to your library.

Disable Automatic Downloads on iPhone and iPad

Step 1: Open the Settings app on your iPhone or IPad.

Step 2: Scroll down and tap Music.

Step 3: Now turn off the switch next to Automatic Downloads.

You can also use the Optimize Storage option to impose a limit (4GB, 8GB, 16GB, etc.) on the amount of storage that Apple Music can use. You can use it with or without the Automatic Downloads option enabled.

Change your settings on Mac

To change this setting on your Mac, open the Music app and then follow these steps.

1) Click Music from the menu bar and select Preferences.

2) Select the General tab.

3) Uncheck Automatic Downloads.

4) Click OK.

Note: You can download and access the same content on up to 10 devices for as long as your ‌Apple Music‌ subscription is active.
