    I just picked up my IPhone 5 and manually re-downloaded all apps, photos etc. to get a clean start. I back up to the cloud as well.

    All of my music by title is showing up in Music library on the mac and on the iPhone, but the music on the iPhone is all sitting in the cloud, meaning that when I am off line (like on an airplane) I can't play it.

    Is there a way to force iCloud/match to download all of my music rather than artist by artist?

    In the future, how do I prevent this from happening?

    Should I have done a restore to the new phone? I gave the new phone a new name, so maybe that's why stuff did not get rebuilt...

    Can you just sync the music over from your iTunes library to the iPhone?
