. The subscription-based music streaming service gives unlimited access to the entire iTunes library for less than $10 dollars a month.
Furthermore, your Apple Music subscription
will enable you to sync your favorite songs, albums, and playlists for offline listening. This quick guide will teach you how to take advantage of this feature.
Before beginning, make sure you have enough storage space on your device to store the synced albums or playlists. An internet connection will also be needed to download the files (preferably WiFi).
Open the Music

button displayed next to the selected content and tap Make Available Offline
Apple Music will then begin downloading the selected content. Tap on the download progress bar
displayed at the top your screen to view the status of your current downloads.
Offline files have a small phone icon
displayed next to them.
If you'd like to view your offline files, go to My Music
and toggle the Show Music Available Offline
switch to On
You can delete synced content from your music library by tapping on the Ellipsis
button > Remove Downloads
