    Hey guys, I'm new to the forum with an account, but been reading for awhile so finally decided to join.

    Anyways...I have a question regarding Apple Music. I got my iPhone 7 Matte Black 128 GB (4 days after ordering thru US Cellular!) and I have Apple Music and iCloud turned on so they appear on all my other devices, but after downloading my iCloud backup all my songs appear, but not downloaded to my phone, which was expected, but is there any way to download all the songs at once in my library to my device for offline use? My phone is the only device that I downloaded to the device for offline use, otherwise it is no big deal. I don't really wanna go thru the 2K-3K songs and click download for offline use on every single one.

    Same issue but what I did was make a playlist called "Apple Music" on my computer and drag all the songs into that playlist. Then it will sync that playlist via the cloud to all my devices including my brand new 7 Plus. I just went to the playlist on the phone and selected to download the whole playlist. Very simple as I just let the phone sit on the charger while it re-downloaded all the music back to the device. Hope that helps.

    Do you have automatic music download checked under Music in settings?

    Yes, but coming from a iCloud backup, it does not automatically download them

    hey, the guy in the video forgot to add more one rule to the playlist.

    "LOCATION - IS NOT - ON TIHS COMPUTER"



    this rule allows you to see what songs are not on your device

    You don't need to create a playlist. Disable iCloud Match and Apple Music from your iPhone. Sync it with your computer using iTunes. It should download all music. Then reenable iCloud Match and Apple Music. When it asks, choose the keep downloads and merge music option.

    What if the opposite is the problem? I have songs on my phone that aren't showing up in iTunes.

    Thoughts? Suggestions?
