Hide and unhide music, movies, TV shows, audiobooks, and books

To hide or unhide music, movies, and TV shows, use your Mac or PC. To hide or unhide books or audiobooks, use your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or computer.

What happens when you hide an item?

When you hide an item, it won't appear in your library on any devices that you use with your Apple ID, unless you already downloaded the item onto those devices.

If you use Family Sharing, family members won't see items that you hide, unless they downloaded the item before you hid it.

If you or a family member downloaded the item onto another device before you hid it, you can delete the item from that device. Learn how to delete music, movies, and TV shows or delete books.

Hiding an item doesn't hide the record of purchase. You can still see the item in your purchase history.
