How to Use Your Library

If you want to keep your Apple Music library around even if you cancel your subscription, here’s how to download and save your collection.

How to Organize Your Library

Your Apple Music library is a collection of all the music that you’ve added to your library, either by buying it from the iTunes Store, ripped from a CD, or imported from another source. By default, your library is organized into two main sections: artists and albums.

You can also view your library by genre or composer. And if you have a lot of music, you can use the search feature to find specific songs, artists, or albums.

How to Share Your Library

There are two ways to share your library with family and friends: you can share your entire library, or you can create a separate library for each person.

If you want to share your entire library, go to Preferences > Family and enter the names and Apple IDs of the people you want to share with. Family members will be able to see and play all of the music in your library.

If you want to create a separate library for each person, go to Preferences > Users and create a new user for each person. Each user will have their own separate library, and they’ll only be able to see and play the music in their own library.

How to Troubleshoot Your Library

If you’re having trouble downloading your Apple Music library, here are some troubleshooting tips to try.

First, be sure that you have an active Apple Music subscription. If you’re not sure, you can check by going to Settings > Music on your iOS device, or System Preferences > Music on your Mac. If you see “Subscribe to Apple Music” or “Sign In” next to an item in your library, it means that you don’t have an active subscription.

If you do have an active subscription and are still having trouble downloading your library, try these tips:

– Check your Internet connection. Make sure that you have a strong network connection before trying to download your library.
– Restart your device. If you’re using an iOS device, hold down the power button and Home button until the Apple logo appears. If you’re using a Mac, click the Apple menu and select “Restart.”
– Update to the latest version of iOS or macOS. You can check for updates by going to Settings > General > Software Update (iOS) or by opening the App Store app and clicking Updates (macOS).
– Check for available space on your device. If you’re running low on storage space, it may prevent your library from being downloaded. Try deleting some files or apps that you no longer need to free up space.
– Contact Apple Support. If none of these troubleshooting tips work, reach out to Apple Support for help with downloading your Apple Music library
