    Anyone else used Apple Music streaming and had it continually fill up the free space on your phone?

    I thought I had a couple of gigs free, so was surprised to start getting free space warnings. Deleted some stuff and before long I was getting the warning again. Rebooted the phone and that seemed to clear the cache, so the space was unoccupied again. We'll see if it keeps happening.

    I don't have a 16gb phone, but it seems like this could be a problem for those that do, if it's a prevalent issue.

    It seems that when you add something from Apple Music to "My Music" or if you add a song to a playlist, it saves it to your phone's storage even if you didn't "make songs offline". I can't imagine why it does this.

    I'd guess it's probably a bug - it does the same on my Phone but I've got 128GB so hadn't noticed it until I read this thread

    It used to do the same thing before Apple Music when you were streaming songs through iTunes Match.
