How to Download a Music Playlist on an iPhone 7

The playlists that you create on your iPhone provide you with a helpful way to curate a group of songs that capture a mood, or are ideal for a particular occasion. If you have an Apple Music subscription or songs in your iCloud Music Library, then you are able to add songs from those locations to your playlists as well.

But if you are going to be listening to that playlist in a location with no cell reception, or very poor cell reception, then you might want to download those songs to your iPhone first so that you will be able to listen to them without any problems. Or, if you are traveling internationally or are low on data, then downloading the playlist over Wi-Fi can even save you some money. Our tutorial below will show you a quick way to download an entire Apple Music playlist to your iPhone.
