The Best Way to Disable iCloud Music Library

Syncing may not always be necessary.

Apple’s music storage solution is called iCloud Music Library. This is where all of your iOS devices’ music downloads and saves from Apple Music and iTunes Match are consolidated. Even while it appears to function well on paper, using iCloud Music Library isn’t always sunshine and rainbows. The service occasionally has glitches when album art is missing or live recordings are mixed up with studio versions. The worst possible scenario is when music occasionally just vanishes entirely. Thankfully, you have the option to disable or uninstall iCloud Music Library. Continue reading if you wish to disable this service but don’t know how to accomplish so.

You can use Apple’s iCloud Music Library if you have an Apple Music or iTunes Match subscription. You can use this feature to sync your music library across up to 10 Apple devices, provided that you are signed into the same iCloud account. However, there are situations in which syncing your music to the iCloud Music Library may not be a good idea. I explain why in this article and how you can turn it off if you want to.

The iCloud Music Library is practical, but it also has some drawbacks. This is due to the fact that it syncs with existing tracks or albums on your device and replaces them with a high-quality version from the Apple Music streaming library (if available).

This procedure may result in incorrect song matching, incorrect album art, and screwed up metadata. In forums, users have also expressed their frustration with the feature’s ambiguity and unintended file deletions. Additionally, it restricts your music listening options to Apple products.

Another thing to bear in mind is that having a backup of your offline files is not the same as having access to iCloud Music Library. Because Apple Music files are DRM-encrypted and linked to your Apple ID, like the majority of streaming services, this is the case. Since you don’t truly own any of the music, even though you can amass a sizable library, it will become inaccessible if you ever decide to cancel your subscription.

A new iPhone, iPad, or Mac comes pre-configured with iCloud Music Library syncing enabled. This isn’t really a big deal for a lot of people, and the benefits may exceed the drawbacks. However, you might want to turn off this option right away if you’ve spent years building up your own music collection or if you don’t plan to use Apple Music in the long run.
