I have all of my Apple Music on my phone but they're all still in the cloud and not downloaded to my device. I have well over 1,000 songs that I stream from my Apple Music membership AND I have iCloud music turned on... which means I can't sync the songs from iTunes into my phone. Instead, it wants everything synced through the cloud.

I can see all my music on the phone but is there to download them all at once?

Tapping each individual track isn't the only solution to this, is it?

When doing it from the phone, the only, slightly, speedier option than going song by song is to do it album by album.

Yeah I agree, there’s isn’t really a simple and quick way to do it on your phone. The best option is creating a smart playlist on iTunes that includes all songs that are more then 0 seconds long (all songs) so then you can just download the playlist and it’ll download all your songs
