Reasons your music might have disappeared from Apple Music
There are several reasons why your music might have disappeared from Apple Music. If you’re using iCloud Music Library, for example, any songs that you’ve downloaded to your device but not added to your iCloud Music Library will be erased when you turn on iCloud Music Library. Similarly, if you delete a song from your iPhone that’s still in your iCloud Music Library, it will also be deleted from your other devices.
There are a few other reasons why your music might have disappeared as well. If you change countries or regions, any music that’s not available in your new region will be removed from your device. And finally, if you cancel your Apple Music subscription, all of the music that you’ve downloaded as part of your subscription will be removed from your device.
How to check if your music has actually been deleted or just hidden
If you’re a subscriber to Apple Music, you can delete songs, albums, playlists, and music videos that you downloaded to your device. If you stop subscribing to Apple Music or delete your membership, all the music in your collection moves back to Apple Music. If songs are grayed out or appear with a dotted circle next to them, they might be hidden.

How to prevent your music from being deleted from Apple Music in the future
It’s happened to the best of us. You open up your Apple Music app to play your favorite song, but it’s no longer there. All of your music has been deleted, and you have no idea why or how to get it back.
If this has happened to you, don’t worry. In most cases, your music can be easily restored. In this article, we’ll explain why your music was deleted from Apple Music and how you can prevent it from happening in the future.
First, let’s take a look at why your music might have been deleted from Apple Music in the first place. There are a few different reasons that this could happen:
-You didn’t renew your subscription: If you let your Apple Music subscription lapse, any music that you downloaded as part of that subscription will be deleted. To prevent this from happening, make sure that you always keep your subscription active.
-You switched to a family plan: If you switch to a family plan, any music that you downloaded as an individual will be deleted. This is because family plans only allow for one subscription per family. To keep your music, you’ll need to download it again under the family plan.
-You switched countries: If you move to a new country, any music that you downloaded in your old country will be deleted. This is because different countries have different licensing agreements with Apple Music. To keep your music, you’ll need to download it again in your new country.
Now that we know the reasons why your music might have been deleted from Apple Music, let’s take a look at how you can prevent it from happening in the future. There are a few different things that you can do:
-Keep your subscription active: As we mentioned above, one of the main reasons why music gets deleted from Apple Music is because people forget to renew their subscriptions. To prevent this from happening, make sure that you set up automatic renewals for your subscription so that it never lapses. You can do this by going to the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad and selecting “iTunes & App Store.” From there, tap on “Apple Music” and make sure that the “Auto-renewal” switch is turned on.
-Back up your music: Another way to prevent losing your music is to back it up periodically so that you have a copy in case anything happens. You can do this by exporting a playlists as an XML file and saving it to Dropbox or another cloud storage service. That way, if anything happens to your Apple Music account, you can always import the XML file and get all ofyourmusic back again.
-Only download songs that you wantto keep: Finally, one of the best ways to prevent losing yourmusic is simplyto only downloadsongs thatyou wantto keep permanentlyonyour device . That way, even if something happens toyour account ordevice ,you won’t lose anymusicthatyou didn ‘t wanttokeep in the first place .
How to get your music back if it’s been deleted from Apple Music
