    So can someone run down the advantages/features of Apple Music, particularly if one uses the iCloud library option (I don't as of yet) as opposed to iTunes Match. I have over 6000 songs (my own, some ripped from CDs but most bought from iTunes) which is not that much but it fits nicely on my iPhone 6 128 GB phone. Is iTUnes match really worth it? I will continue to buy music although I am pretty slow about it - a lot fo what I listen to on AM is not stuff I might buy...but may be nice for offline use.

    One big difference is that iTunes Match looks at your actual audio file to see what it is and doesn't mess up your iTunes library. Apple Music just looks at metadata tags.

    I got burnt by Apple Music where all my metadata was messed up and songs were replaced by video files etc. does anyone know if Apple Music has fixed this yet and matches songs via the iTunes Match method?
