If you are a music fan, saving music offline sounds like something you would do. Then the problem is, how much storage does an Apple Music take up? Generally speaking, an Apple Music song takes up about 10 M. It varies from song to song but how much space the song takes up usually depends on the quality of the song.

If you don't have so much space on your phone or your computer, backing up Apple Music to OneDrive is a sensible choice. OneDrive may not be the best cloud service but it is really convenient for Windows users since every Windows computer has embedded OneDrive. You don't have to download and install it and OneDrive is already on your computer. OneDrive offers a free 5 GB storage to all the registered member. 5 GB free storage is not so much for photos or videos, but for documents and audios, it means a lot. According to what has been mentioned above, we can do the match: per 100 downloaded Apple Music songs take up 1GB. So, with the 5 GB storage, you can save about 500 songs to OneDrive at free. That's pretty much.
