Delete files downloaded and cached by Apple Music

OS X 10.8 and later. Apple Music stores the audio files it plays in ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.iTunes/SubscriptionPlayCache/. This script will simply delete that folder.

The files in this folder are specially protected audio files that are downloaded and cached when you play a track from Apple Music on your Mac. They can't be user-played and are only useful to Apple Music, ostensibly so iTunes doesn't have to re-download them if they are played again. (This cache folder doesn't pertain to Radio music. Or to Apple Music you've added to your library for offline listening, the files of which are stored in your "iTunes Media" folder.)

Be sure to also see View Cached Music, a free app that lists track information about the Apple Music files cached on your computer.

Action shot:

Flush Apple Music Cache Files in action

About 1GB per 100 files or so.
