Before anything else, it’s important to have a basic understanding of Apple Music. On that note, we will first introduce Apple Music and perhaps cover some topics that you may or may not know already.
As you may already know, Apple Music is a popular music-streaming service. It was released in 2015 right after the Apple Company bought off the Beats Music service. This explains why Apple Music was announced right after the discontinuation of Beats.
While you may be a long-standing user of Apple Music, it’s not known by a lot of people what this platform is known for. In truth, Apple Music is popular due to its interface. Not only does it offer recommendations, it also makes sure the songs that are shown to users fit their criteria. This is the unique selling point of Apple Music, and one of the reasons why it’s popular.
Another detail that made this music-streaming service quite popular is that the interface consists of several sections. There is a section for you to discover music, a section for you to listen to radio stations, and a section to look browse the entire music collection of Apple. Still, Apple Music lacks in a certain department, and that is their accessibility.
Music has a fantastic security system. They make sure their content is not compromised by using FairPlay. Such an algorithm prevents users from illegally distributing content, making sure artists get their fair share of the profits made. However, this is not an ideal situation for the users, but what exactly is FairPlay?
FairPlay is a DRM technology that is embedded in all of the contents of Apple Music. Usually, this algorithm is found on AAC or MP4 files, so it’s difficult to download your files for offline listening. However, while it may not be an easy feat, it’s still possible as long as you pay for each song you download.
Streaming music often requires oneself to have internet. It may be harsh, but that’s reality, so having an offline listening feature is greatly appreciated. Fortunately, Apple Music has such a feature, but it’s only possible if you’re a subscriber or you purchased the songs for yourself.
With that being said, you should be able to make your own Apple Music offline playlist as long as you’re a subscriber. Since it’s not going to be easy, I will discuss that in the next section.
Offline listening is just one of the features that come with being a subscriber on Apple Music. So considering how you made it all the way here, you must be currently paying for a subscription plan, so let’s not waste our time.

With these six steps, you will eventually end up with an offline playlist. The bad news is that if you cancel your subscription, all the effort that you’ve put in will be lost since your playlist will be deleted. Hence, I have another suggestion: sync your music.
You can do this by opening the Settings app of your device. Now go to Music and you will see several options. Look for the one that says Sync Library and turn it on. This should automatically create a copy of your songs into all your other devices so you can secure your playlist. This is also an easier method, but it doesn’t work 100% of the time.
If you have a Windows PC or a Mac, it should still be a possible task for you to create an Apple Music offline playlist. You can do it the same way as you downloaded songs on your mobile device using these steps:
This is only applicable if you want to do it slowly. Since PC or Mac usually has a special tool which is iTunes, it should be possible to make the process a lot easier and simpler by using these steps for Apple Music download all songs in the library:
