Downloading music from Apple Music
The first thing to do is to open up the Apple Music app on the device. Choose the Apple Music Tab, instead of your library tab. The main point to remember here is that you need a proper internet connection in order to download music offline.
Next, on the top of the screen, tap on the search bar. Search for your favorite song(s) or album. If you select an album that’s your favorite, you just go ahead and click on the ‘+Add’ button. Now, this album will be added to your library.
Now, over the songs list, just beside any of the songs, you will be able to see a cloud button or icon. This button represents the installation/download of the song for offline listening. Once you have downloaded the songs, go back to the search and click on the ‘Your Library’ tab. There is also a single cloud/download icon on top of each album, that lets you download all the songs at a time.
Here, you can see the added album in the list. If it is an album of multiple songs, you can find them all in the list. There is one small check to make sure that these songs are now available for offline listening. That is the ‘Downloaded’ mark on top of the album screen in your library.

Syncing Apple music on your iPad and iPhone
In cases where you have multiple apple devices like an iPhone for regular usage and an iPad for non-frequent usage. You must make sure that your music/songs and your library is syncing across all the apple devices. This even makes sure that offline music is also synced on the devices so that you never get a break from your listening experience, ever.
Go to iPhone settings and open the Music app (Apple Music). Under the Library section, turn on the ‘Sync Library’ option. On your iPad, you will now be having all the songs synced in the library. In the library, where you have all songs listed, just swipe left on any song to find the down arrow – download button. You can individually download these songs onto the device, for offline listening.
If you have a smart playlist option, you can create a manual playlist of multiple songs and download that whole playlist from the download icon, at a time. This can be implemented when you are unable to download each and every song individually from the list. However, the only caveat for having a smart playlist option is that you can only do it through a Mac.
