“How to save Apple Music to SD card, I looking for a way to download my Apple Music to an SD card, so that I can listen to Apple Music offline on any device that supports SD card. I need some simple suggestions.”

That's why so many users are looking for effective ways to transfer music from Apple Music to an SD card, export Apple Music to a USB drive, download and keep the music from Apple Music, and more.

In this guide, we will show you how to temporarily save Apple Music to an SD card on an Android device and carry out a trick that downloads and save Apple Music to an SD card (or other storage devices), helping you free up space on your phone and store them on your SD card forever.

Part 1: Save Apple Music to SD Card Temporarily?

Apple Music for Android released a feature to save downloaded songs onto an SD card in February of 2016. So If you use Apple Music on an Android smartphone, you can download and save songs onto the microSD card directly. If you're running out of room on your phone, it is a very practical feature to expand the storage space of your phones by saving offline music to an sd card. However, there is no such option for iOS users, because iPhone and iPad devices don't have an SD card slot built-in ever.

Here is how to save Apple Music tracks to SD Card on Android:

1. Update Apple Music in the Google Play store.

2. Open Apple Music, go to Settings.

3. Just below the Downloads will be a new option called Download Location

4. Select SD Card to save downloaded songs to the SD card in your phone.

5. You will see a prompt asking whether you need to change the download location to an SD card, tap "Yes".
