It’s easy to delete downloaded music you no longer listen to on Apple Music – whether you do so all at once or remove them song by song.
To clear all of your downloaded Apple Music content, you’ll have to access the Music tab in your Settings app. After selecting “Downloaded Music” you can choose to edit the list and delete all of your songs, or just individual artists, songs, or albums.
Once you delete your downloaded songs, they will no longer appear in your library. As long as you keep your Apple Music subscription, you can redownload these items at any time.
It’s also important to note that this process differs from deleting an individual song, artist, or album in the Apple Music app.
Here’s how to do it.
