Apple Music Hidden Cache
I have been using Apple Music since it was launched and since then I have noticed that my file storage has been whittled down and was never able to find out why.
I have always had my suspicions about Apple Music but I never had any proof. But I decided to access my settings > music, then I disabled iCloud Music Library for a few moments and then re-enabled and checked my storage and I had almost 2.5gb back on my device with the added bonus that my saved (not downloaded music) was still available. That is when I confirmed that Apple Music has a secret cache that is not visible on the device nor in iTunes.
It was an interesting discovery so I decided to search the web for information related and to my surprise there wasn’t a lot regarding this issue.
Apple Music doesn’t list anywhere that cache is being saved and when I checked in storage it would list its usage as 0 MB, unlike all other apps I have installed that do show in «Documents and Data».
Please let me know if you knew about this and if so, how did you discover it?
