Check your internet connection

If your Apple Music download is taking too long, one of the first things you should check is your internet connection. If you’re on a cellular connection, make sure you have enough data to complete the download. If you’re on Wi-Fi, check to see if your router is set up properly and try restarting it.

Check your storage

If you’re having trouble downloading songs to your Apple Music library, it’s possible that there’s not enough storage on your iPhone or iPad. To check your available storage, go to Settings -> General -> About. If you see a message that says “Storage Almost Full,” you need to free up some space.

You can do this by deleting songs that you don’t listen to anymore, or by moving them to your computer. To delete a song, find it in your Apple Music library and swipe left on it. To move a song, connect your device to your computer and drag the song from iTunes to your computer’s desktop.

Check if you have the latest version of iOS

If you’re having trouble downloading Apple Music, it might be because you’re using an old version of iOS. To make sure you have the latest version of iOS, go to Settings > General > Software Update.

Check if you have the latest version of iTunes

If you’re having trouble getting your Apple Music downloads to start, one thing you can try is checking to see if you have the latest version of iTunes. If you don’t, you can download it from Apple’s website. Once you have the latest version, try downloading your music again.

Check if you have the latest version of macOS

Before you try anything else, make sure that you have the latest version of macOS. To do this:

1. Open the App Store on your Mac.
2. Click Updates at the top of the App Store window.
3. If any updates are available, click Update All or Update next to the Apple Music app.

Restart your device

If you’re having trouble downloading music from Apple Music to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, try restarting your device. Here’s how:

1. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the red slider appears.
2. Drag the slider to turn your device completely off.
3. After your device turns off, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button again until you see the Apple logo.

Check your subscription

When you join Apple Music, you get access to a wide range of music, ad-free radio stations, and other audio content. You can also download songs and albums that you’ve purchased from the iTunes Store, or that you’ve added to your Apple Music library, to your devices.

However, if you’re having trouble downloading music from Apple Music or the iTunes Store, there are a few things you can try. First, check to make sure that you have an active Apple Music subscription. If you don’t see an option to join Apple Music when you open the Music app on your device, it’s likely that you already have an active subscription.

If your subscription is active but you’re still having trouble downloading music, try the following:

– Restart your device and then open the Music app.
– Check for updates to iOS, macOS, or iTunes.
– Make sure that iCloud Music Library is turned on in the Settings app on your device.
– If you have a large music library, it might take some time to upload and sync your music library across all of your devices.

Check for updates

When you first launch Apple Music, it will attempt to download all of the songs and albums in your iCloud Music Library. If you see a message that says “Downloading,” this means that the process has begun. Depending on the size of your library, it might take some time for everything to finish downloading.

If you’re having trouble getting your Apple Music downloads to start, there are a few things you can check:

– Make sure that you have a stable internet connection. Apple Music requires an internet connection in order to download songs and albums.
– Check for any updates to iOS or macOS. If there are any updates available for your devices, install them and try downloading again.
– Restart your device. This can often fix minor software glitches that might be causing problems with downloads.
– If you’re still having trouble, contact Apple Support for more help.

Contact Apple Support

If you’re experiencing difficulty downloading music from Apple Music, the first step is to contact Apple Support. They will be able to help you troubleshoot the issue and get your music downloading again in no time.

Try a different song

If you’re having trouble downloading a song from Apple Music, the first thing you should try is to download a different song. Sometimes, certain songs are more difficult to download than others. If you’re able to download other songs but not the one you want, it’s likely that there’s an issue with the specific song you’re trying to download.
