    Hi Rene,
    I can't find the setting to show only downloaded music on my iPhone 7 Plus. It's driving me nuts! Can you help me out?

    Open the music app, go to the Library tab, tap the edit button on the upper right and enable Downloaded Music Only.
    Now you will see Downloaded Music Only under 'playlist', 'Album', 'Artist' etc.

    If you open the music app then go to your Library there should be a heading called Downloaded Music.
    If not then chances are you don't have any downloaded music

    I actually use a different music app: Vox. That just plays/shows downloaded music. It also has a nice dark interface. It often goes on sale for free.

    VOX: FLAC Music Player with MP3 & YouTube by Coppertino Inc.

    And even then sometimes it won't change or it changes back. It's a PITA.

    If it doesn't change, force quit the Music.app and restart it.

    To avoid streaming music while I was not on wifi prior to switching to unlimited data with my carrier, I had streaming over data disabled in Settings > Music > Cellular Data. That way it simply skipped songs that were not locally stored on my iPhone.
