How To Buy Music on Your iPhone 1

No Longer Able to Purchase Songs on Apple Music

Apple Music no longer allows the purchase of songs and albums directly within the Apple Music app. Instead, Apple has decided to separate the buying of music from the listening experience. To buy music, you must now open up iTunes on your computer or device and purchase tracks from there. This change was made so that users would have a more streamlined experience when searching for new music to listen to, without having to worry about making purchases within the same app.

Purchasing Music from Apple Music

Purchasing music from Apple Music is easy and straightforward. First, open the Apple Music app on your iPhone, iPad, or Android device. Then, search for the song or album that you want to purchase. Once you find it, tap the price next to the music and follow the instructions to make your purchase. After your purchase is complete, you’ll be able to access the music in your library for streaming or offline playback.

Using iTunes Instead of Apple Music

Yes, you can still use iTunes instead of Apple Music. iTunes will remain available for Mac, iOS, PC, and Apple TV in order to purchase music and access previously imported or purchased content.
