    Hi guys,

    Firing up my new iPhone 7 from the back-up of my 6. I currently have all of my songs on my 6 downloaded - able to listen offline.

    I heard when you transfer over that is undone. How can I simply toggle/download all of my "added" music from Apple Music?

    Thanks all in advance!

    I saw a brilliant tip else where and followed it.

    Open iTunes on your desktop, log in with the same iCloud account used for Apple Music. Create a new Smart Playlist, make it add every track with track length >0 seconds. Name the playlist "All Music".

    Now go on your iPhone, go to Music > Playlist > All Music. Hit the download button at the top of the playlist. Enjoy!

    That is why I turned off Apple music. I just setup my phone and all the music was there.

    I'd like to be able to do that too. I have data-free access to Apple Music so that's ok for data itself, but there are places I go that have no mobile service so I'll have to stream only when I have signal, and resort to saved music when I have no service.

    Having them separated but both available on the phone offline would be ideal

    This is what I use too. It's brilliant. Everything automatically downloads to the phone when connected to wifi.
