How to Download Your Whole Library from Apple Music

Here’s how you can download all of your music from Apple Music in one fell swoop.

Introduction

Apple Music is a streaming service that allows you to listen to over 50 million songs. It is available in 157 countries and comes with a 3-month free trial. If you decide to continue your subscription after the free trial, you will be charged $9.99/month for an individual membership or $14.99/month for a family membership. With an Apple Music subscription, you can download songs, albums, and playlists to your device so that you can listen to them without an internet connection. In this article, we will show you how to download your entire library from Apple Music.

To do this, we will need to use the Apple Music app on our Mac or PC and the iTunes Store app on our iPhone or iPad.

1) On your Mac or PC, open the Apple Music app and click on the “For You” tab at the bottom of the screen.

2) On the “For You” page, scroll down and click on the “View All” link under the “Libraries” section.

3) On the next page, select the library that you want to download from the drop-down menu at the top of the page. For this example, we will be downloading our entire library.

4) Click on the “Download” button next to each song or album that you want to download. A checkmark will appear next to each song or album that has been downloaded successfully.

5) Once your downloads are complete, open the iTunes Store app on your iPhone or iPad and tap on the “Library” tab at the bottom of the screen.

6) On the “Library” page, tap on the “Downloaded” switch at the top of the page so that it turns green. This will show only downloaded songs and albums in your library.

7) Tap on any song or album that you want to listen to offline and it will begin playing immediately without any internet connection required.

What You’ll Need

Before you get started, there are a few things you’ll need:
-An Apple Music subscription
-An iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 8.4 or later, or a Mac with OS X Yosemite or later
-The latest version of iTunes

Once you have everything you need, follow the steps below to download your entire Apple Music library:

1. Open the Music app on your iOS device.
2. Tap the My Music tab.
3. Tap the Songs view in the top right corner of the screen.
4. Tap the Select button in the top right corner of the screen.
5. Tap on each song that you want to download, or tap Select All to select all of them at once. 6. Once you’ve selected all of the songs that you want to download, tap the Download button in the bottom right corner of the screen.

Backing Up Your Library

When you first sign up for Apple Music, you have the option to either start with a clean slate or to import your existing iTunes library into Apple Music. If you choose to import your library, all of your purchased songs, albums, and playlists will be available in the Apple Music app. However, if you later decide that you want to cancel your Apple Music subscription, you will lose access to all of those songs unless you’ve downloaded them to your device.

To download your entire library from Apple Music:

1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad.
2. Tap on Music.
3. Make sure the toggle next to iCloud Music Library is turned on.
4. Tap on Downloaded Music.
5. Tap on the toggle next to Include Videos to also download any music videos that are in your library.
6. Tap on the toggle next to High Quality Streaming to download high-quality versions of songs instead of lower quality versions (requires more storage).
7. Tap on Done when you’re finished making changes.
8. Open the Apple Music app and go to My Music > Library > Albums or Songs to see what has been downloaded.

Conclusion

If you want to download your entire Apple Music library, there are a few different ways to do it. One way is to use the built-in export feature in iTunes. To do this, open up iTunes on your computer and go to File > Library > Export Library. This will save your entire library as an XML file, which you can then import into another music player.

Another way to download your Apple Music library is to use a third-party service like MusConv. With MusConv, you can transfer your entire Apple Music library — including playlists, ratings, and album artwork — to another music service like Spotify or Amazon Music. MusConv offers a free trial, so you can try it out before you commit to anything.

Finally, if you just want to download individual songs or albums from Apple Music, you can do that directly from the iTunes Store app on your iPhone or iPad. Just tap the More button (the three dots) next to a song or album that you want to download, then tap the Cloud Download button.
