How to Purchase Music From Apple Music on iPhone or iPad?

When Apple updated the iPhone and iPad music apps to emphasize your music collection, the iCloud music library, and Apple Music, it eliminated any signs of iTunes, which had previously had a prominent role.

Yes, streaming music is trendy, and for good reason: with offline playback and customisable playlists, your music collection is larger and more diverse than ever. However, if you sometimes like to own your music, you may shop via the iTunes app.

A negative consequence of this shift is that it is now far more difficult to purchase music you’ve discovered and enjoyed on Apple Music.

Even if the song or album is not supported at all by Apple Music, there is no direct option to “Open on iTunes.”

When you try to play a file that doesn’t stream in the Music app, you’ll get a message telling you that it’s not available on your device.

It appears that Apple has altered the functionality of iTunes music connections on iOS. But if you want to purchase a song via Apple Music on your iPhone or iPad, the process is not quite as hard.

How do you purchase an Apple Music song from the iTunes Store on an iPhone or iPad?

1. Launch the iTunes Store app on your iOS device.
2. Browse the “Shops,” “Recommended”, and “Charts” categories, or use the “Search” button to find a particular product.
3. Click “browse” on an album, then click “buy” to purchase either the complete album or a single song.
4. Verify your purchase.

How to get a song on Apple Music and other streaming services

We suggest downloading the free SoundShare app by Mateus Abras.

This application is like Instagram, but for music. It pulls together some music streaming services in one location, enabling you to see what your friends are listening to, build collaborative playlists of songs (independent of the provider), and more. SoundShare’s integration with Apple Music, Spotify, and Deezer is complete.
