Many iPhone and iPad users recently discovered that a U2 album appeared on their iOS devices seemingly at random. Though part of a promotion from Apple and the band U2, which was a hit with U2 fans, this also caused a fair amount of confusion, as some people thought it was a bug or their Apple ID was hacked, of course neither being the intention of Apple. If you want to hide the U2 album from your iOS device, you can do that quickly in one of two ways, we’ll show you both.
Before trying to hide the album (and as a result, hide all iCloud music), it should be noted that the U2 album isn’t actually taking up any space on your iPhone or iPad by default, it just shows up in your Music app. The songs won’t download to the device unless you choose to download it locally by tapping on the little cloud icons alongside either the album or song names.
