    I recently upgraded to an Iphone 7 from a 6. All my apple music songs now need to be downloaded to my new phone for offline listening. Is there a way to do a batch download off all of them at once or do I have to go song by song and waste a large portion of my life pressing on each one. Thanks

    Make a Playlist and then download it.

    Ok, so im on my phone. I create new playlist but I still have to press on every song to add to playlist, is there a way to add all the songs to the playlist at once?

    I did it from my laptop on iTunes, on your phone i think that you'd have to choose each one individually.

    Does this playlist method work reliably now? When Apple Music first launched I tried this as I have 128GB iPhone and want to store lost of music, however it would fail lots of random songs as it was trying to download so many (not due to storage).

    iOS 10s music app does seem more stable regarding downloads but haven't tried a large batch download yet.

    Absolutely not. I must hate myself, as this is the fourth or fifth time I've tried to switch from Spotify to Apple Music, ranging from launch until present day.

    Even splitting my library up into 30 different playlists results in issue after issue after issue.

    It's amazing it's so hard to sync a library of music isn't it? I'd would have thought by now it would be sorted. Spotify downloads are flawless.
