How to Undownload Songs on Apple Music

Q: "Over the past few months, I went to a place where I didn't have an internet connection, so I downloaded a lot of songs for offline listening. Now that I'm back, I want to delete them all, but I don't want to remove them from my database. What should I do?"

Deleting downloads from Apple Music can help free up more space on your device. Apple Music has two ways to delete music: "Delete from library" or "Delete downloads". The first action will completely delete the song from your Apple Music account, including your downloads and library. Therefore, these songs will disappear from all your devices. The second will only delete the downloads on your device, but the songs will remain in your library. If desired, you can re-download them to your device for offline listening. In this article, we will show you how to undownload songs on Apple Music.

Part 4. Why Does Apple Music Remove Downloads?

"Why did all my songs undownload on Apple Music?"

Some users have reported that Apple Music deletes all downloaded songs or keeps deleting downloads. There are several reasons for this. Check them out below.

1. Your Apple Music subscription has expired. If your subscription has expired or there is a problem with your account, all songs you downloaded will be deleted. This is because Apple Music is a subscription-based streaming music platform. You need to keep your subscription active to listen to Apple Music.

2. Your device has insufficient storage space. If your device is low on storage, Apple Music may automatically delete downloaded songs to optimize storage on your device.

3. The song's license has changed. Perhaps because the licensing agreement for these songs disappeared, they will be removed from Apple Music.

Part 5. How to Download and Back Apple Music without Limits

Apple Music only lets you download up to 100,000 songs, and once your subscription expires, all downloads are gone. There are other restrictions, such as you can only listen to downloaded songs on authorized devices. To break all these limitations, we would like to present you DRmare Apple Music Converter.

But thankfully, DRmare Apple Music Converter allows you to convert Apple Music M4P to commonly used MP3 or other formats with lossless sound quality. Then, you can use any other music player to open and listen to the converted Apple Music tracks, with no need to subscribe to Apple Music.
