How to automatically add music to your library on iPhone and iPad

If you have an Apple Music subscription, then you know you can add millions of songs to your collection and even download them to listen to when your internet connection is spotty. If you're the type to want all of your music on your iPhone or iPad and with you at all times (no matter your connection status), you don't have to go in and manually download everything anymore.

Here's how to set things so that the Apple Music you add to your collection automatically downloads onto your iPhone or iPad!

How to enable iCloud Music Library on your iPhone or iPad

First, you need to make sure your iCloud Library is enabled.

  1. Launch Settings from your Home screen.
  2. Tap on Music.
  3. Switch iCloud Music Library to On.

  3. Tap the switch next to Automatic Downloads.

    Launch Settings, tap Music, tap the switch next to Automatic Downloads

Now, whenever you add music to your Library, it will automatically be downloaded onto your iPhone and you'll be able to listen offline.
