    So my problem is that when i listen to music sooner or later i'm going to get a message how i have no storage left on my phone, even though i dont download any songs or make them available offline. It went so far that i have only 30mb of free space. Obviously apple music is storing all played songs into some cache for which i have no idea how to clear...its getting quite annoying since i cant even take couple of pictures anymore. Anybody have any solution for this?

    Soft reset the phone? How much free memory you had before starting to stream?

    So i used the method with iexplorer and it worked great, but sooner or later the phone's storage will get filled again and if i'm nowhere near a computer this issue can be a real pain in the ass. Any other method to clear the storage just via phone?

    My understanding was like iCloud Photo Library/Photos app, Music app will use as much available storage as possible to cache media. When space gets low or is needed, it will release some of it's cache automatically.

    That is what one would expect, but reports in the other thread (this one is kind of a dup) is that people are getting low storage warnings, which is definitely not how cache management should work.
