Double downloads into Apple Music from store??? Why?

Postby Dr Huge Longjohns » Wed Jan 27, 2021 12:42 pm

I've just bought a couple of albums off the iTunes store and each track now appears twice in Apple Music (the software formerly known as iTunes). One has a download cloud symbol next to it, the other doesn't. This is very annoying, anyone know what it's doing this for and how to stop it? Cheers

I wonder if it's the same as this old issue...

Can you choose View...Only downloaded music...?

Brilliant, the View suggestion did the trick.
Still not clear why it's offering me a download of every track I've already downloaded, though! I'm not an Apple Music subscriber so it isn't that. Cheers

Add it to the growing list of bugs that seem to be cropping up with how Apple servers interact with the user.
