Downloading lots of songs or albums from the Apple Music catalog can use up a lot of local storage on your device.
Fortunately it's easy to remove downloaded Apple Music content and reclaim the storage space of your devices. Here's how.
- Launch the Music app on your iPhone or iPad, or open iTunes on your computer.
- Find the song or album in your library that you want to remove locally from your device.
- In the Music app, press and hold the item, select Remove... from the pop-up menu, and then tap Remove Download when prompted. In iTunes, right-click (or Ctrl-click) the item and select Remove Download.
Note that if you see the cloud icon next to a song or album, then it's stored in the cloud, not on your device, so it doesn't use any local storage.
