Play Tidal Music on iPhone Offline

It's happened to all of us before- we're out and about, enjoying a nice day, when suddenly our music cuts out. Whether we're in a dead zone with no cell service or just trying to conserve data, there are moments when streaming music is not an option. That's where TIDAL's Offline Mode comes in handy. By downloading songs, videos, and other media to your device, you can listen to your favorite tunes even when you're not connected to the Internet.

However, TIDAL's offline mode still requires an Internet connection in order to stream the songs. Luckily, there is a way to download Tidal music to your iPhone and listen to it offline. By following these simple steps, you can easily download Tidal songs to your iPhone and enjoy them offline with MQA quality.

Play Tidal Music on iPhone Offline

Part 1. Play Tidal Music on iPhone Offline [Tidal HiFi Only]

Tidal allows you to download songs to your phone and play them back anytime, even if you are in Airplane Mode or if you don't have Wi-Fi and would prefer not to use your cellular data plan to stream audio.

Offline mode

Step 1: Start the Tidal app on your phone.

Step 2: Find an album you want to download. Browse or search for an album you want to download. Open the album and confirm you see the tracklisting.

Step 3: Swipe the Download button to the right to turn it on. The songs on the album will be added to the download queue and stored on your phone.

Step 4: Go to My Collection > Settings, turn on Offline mode by swiping the button to the right.

Step 5: On the "My Collection" page, locate the "Downloaded" link and tap it. Choose the tracks you want to listen to and wait for it to begin playing automatically.

Note: There are a few limitations to downloading in Tidal, though. First, you can only do this using a mobile app on your phone – you can't download tracks to your computer. Second, you can only download entire albums or playlists, not individual tracks.


Part 2. Play Tidal Music on iPhone Offline [Tidal Free & HiFi]

Tidal provides three different plans: Tidal Free, Tidal HiFi, HiFi Plus. Offline mode requires HiFi or HiFi Plus subscription to download songs for offline playback. However, the downloaded songs are just cached files, so you can’t use them on other players or devices. To break this limitation, you can use the TuneCable iTadal Music Converter.

It keeps the full ID3 tags (title, artist, album, track num, year, etc.) of the Tidal tracks and preserves 100% original quality of the Tidal songs.
