    Default How can I delete downloaded songs but keep them in Music?

    I looked on Apple and does not seem very detailed. I have Apple Music subscription. I downloaded some songs to play offline when I was not able to get wi-fi/cell service. Now I want to delete those downloads but still keep them in my music if that makes sense. I just want the local copy gone on my phone but still see it in Apple Music. How?

    Can I just go to settings>general>storage>manage storage>music>edit>click (red -) >delete?

    Default Re: Deleting Locally Stored Songs

    While in the  Music app, select the "Library" tab, and then select the song you want to delete. Afterwards, tap the 3 dots (...) at the right of the song's title. Select "Delete". After that, you will be prompted to "Delete from My Music" or "Remove Download". Select "Remove Download".

    Default Re: Deleting Locally Stored Songs

    if you do this, settings>general>storage>manage storage>music>edit>click (red -) >delete, will this delete your entire library? Or will it only delete songs downloaded to your device? Will it erase any of your apple music playlists?
