How to Delete All Songs in Apple Music

Apple Music is a streaming service that you can subscribe to and use directly from your iPhone.

While it may, at first, seem to only allow you to stream music to your device while you are connected to the Internet, Apple Music also offers an option to download certain songs directly to your device.
