Although Apple has increased the capabilities of the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus up to 32, 128 and 256GB of storage, there are still many users who have devices with only 16GB and who have to manage the downloaded content on their device very well . Music is one of the applications that can occupy that precious space the most, but with iOS 10 we have very useful configuration options for to have all our favorite music downloaded and to be able to listen to it offline and at the same time not have to worry about what we download and what not to not run out of free space. We explain how to configure everything to our liking.
As with Photos or macOS Sierra, Apple allows us to activate the option that the system is the one that manages our storage, making that if necessary that music that we have downloaded but that we do not listen to is deleted. This will only happen if the system runs out of free space, and it is a dynamic process, that is, we activate it and we can not worry because iOS will take care of everything.
If we open the Music application and access any album or playlist that we have downloaded on the iPhone, we can select which song we want to delete and delete to download. If we have 3D Touch (iPhone 6s onwards) just press hard on that song and choose the menu option that appears on the screen. If not, we can always click on the “…” and the same menu will appear.
