Frequently Asked Questions

What happens to my iTunes library?

Nothing. Your iTunes library is still yours. You can access your entire collection from Apple Music or from iTunes for macOS or Windows.

How does Apple Music know what songs are in my personal library?

With an Apple Music membership, your entire library lives in iCloud. We compare every track in your collection to the Apple Music library to see if we have a copy. If we do, you can automatically listen to it straight from the cloud. If you have music that’s not in our catalogue, we upload those songs from iTunes on your Mac or PC. It’s all in iCloud, so it won’t take up any space on your devices.

Does Apple Music work with Apple Watch?

With a membership to Apple Music, you can sync music to your Apple Watch from a paired iPhone. Then you can play it back, even when your paired iPhone is not nearby.

Does Apple Music work on Android?

Yes, we are excited to offer Apple Music for Android.

Download on Google Play

How does the family membership work?

Up to six people in your family can enjoy all the features of Apple Music. To get started, just set up iCloud Family Sharing on your iOS device, Android phone or Mac and invite family members to join.

How does the student membership work?

Students get the same Apple Music features and benefits as individual members. Once your student status with your college or university is verified, you get student membership pricing for up to four years, as long as you remain a student. After four years, your membership will continue at the individual member price.

How much music can I download to my device?

Apple Music allows unlimited downloading for members. So you can download as much music as your device’s storage allows.

How can I use Siri to play back music?

Siri can add songs to your library, play anything in the Apple Music library, find the top tracks from 1992 or even play the soundtracks to some of your favourite films. All you have to do is ask.

How do I change my membership type?

Changing your Apple Music membership is simple. If you joined Apple Music as an individual, you can change to a family membership at any time or even join an existing family membership. And if you currently have an individual membership but are now a student, you can change to a student membership to take advantage of student pricing.
