How to Delete Songs from Apple Music on iPhone and iPad

When you download songs or albums from Apple Music on your iOS device, it will occupy a lot of space. A wiser decision is to delete or remove downloaded songs from your Apple Music app on iPhone or iPad. Do this exercise regularly to add new songs to your music library.

It has been four years Apple launched its music streaming service, i.e., Apple Music. Users already have a huge list of songs on the app. Over time, our favorite songs are replaced by some of the other soundtracks. Apple Music provides very easy user-interface to add music and create a playlist of songs. But when you want to remove downloaded songs or delete the same songs, there needs a little understanding.

Before I write down the steps to remove or delete downloaded songs, please note that Apple Music shows different options for songs you have purchased in iTunes and songs added to Library on your iPhone. If you have purchased songs in iTunes, you can actually delete that song, and if you have added the songs to Library from your iPhone, you can remove downloads. Now, let’s check how it works on your device.
