Check your internet connection
If you’re having trouble downloading songs from Apple Music, make sure that you have a stable internet connection. If you’re on a cellular data plan, make sure that cellular data is turned on for Apple Music in your device’s Settings app.
Check if there is an update available for your iPhone
One of the first things you should do when you encounter this problem is to check if there is an update available for your iPhone. To do this, go to Settings -> General -> Software Update. If there is an update available, download and install it. This might fix the problem.
Check if there is an update available for the Apple Music app
If you’re having trouble downloading songs from Apple Music, make sure you have the latest version of the Apple Music app. To check for updates, open the App Store on your device, then tap Today at the bottom of the screen. Tap your profile icon, then tap Updates. If there’s an Apple Music update available, tap Update.
Check if you have enough storage space on your iPhone
Before taking any further steps, make sure that you have enough storage space on your iPhone to accommodate the songs you’re trying to download. If your device is low on storage, it could be the reason why your downloads are taking a long time or not completing. To check how much storage you have available, go to Settings > General > iPhone Storage. If you see that your device is “Low on Storage,” free up some space by deleting unnecessary files and apps. Once you’ve done that, try downloading your songs again.
Check if you have the latest version of iOS
If you’re using an iPhone, make sure you have the latest version of iOS. To do this, go to Settings > General > Software Update. If there’s a new version of iOS available, follow the onscreen instructions to install it.

You can check if you have an active subscription by opening the Music app on your iPhone and tapping the “For You” tab.
