I know how to download offline music in Apple music on my iPhone. I know how to select off-line playlists. Here's what I don't know.
With Spotify off-line access is very specific. I have to go into Spotify and say that I'm running in off-line mode. That's how I know Spotify is it using data. True it's a trust issue but I actually tell it to go off-line.
When I search for this kind of comparison for Apple music I never find a specific answer to this. Off-line all he seems to be mentioned in reference to places where you can't get a good signal or airplane mode or such. I certainly don't want to put my iPhone in airplane mode just to listen to off-line data. For me, I am thinking of times when I'm out riding my bike on in 15 or 20 mile circuit and I want my phone to stay powered up so I usually would switch Spotify into off-line. But then of course my phone will still work in any other way.
I know on the iPhone I can switching to airplane mode when I'm in off-line mode and I listen to the songs that I've been downloaded sure. But my question is this does the same thing hold true when I am not in airplane mode and have a good signal. Or does Apple assume why would you ever want to go and off mine mode when you have a good data connection.
So if somebody can point me to an article that specifically says when I am browsing off-line playlists and playing them they are being played from stored files on the phone and not via a datastream, I would appreciate that.
