My iCloud library doesn't sync so my phone when I add something on my Mac, but vice versa everything works just fine.

I have exactly this issue also. Tried multiple attempts to re-add iCloud music to my photo (via settings -> Music -> iCloud Music toggle - choosing both merge and replace) and no luck. Is everyone seeing this? Has apple acknowledged it?

When I delete everything and toggle the iCloud library off and on again and choose replace it would work, but i just made 25 GB of songs offline available and I will not do this again. Also: My albums that I can't sync with apple music but upload manually don't show up either. I hope there is a workaround.

how did you delete everything? I have 60GB of music I take with me - not looking forward to making that all available offline :(

Do you now get reliable sync from Mac to iOS after this?

Oddly syncing to my iPad just works, so I feel like this is a bug with Apple Music

I decided that since Apple music had almost everything in my library I would just replace everything with the apple music stuff (after thoroughly backing up my library) and then I downloaded everything again. But no after this I still can't get my mac to sync stuff to my iPhone.

ok good to know, thanks for the information. Sounds like this isn't the fix I was hoping for. This has to be a bug. I hope Apple are listening to these issues...

Me too, I'm not willing to use this fix again, after manually adding and downloading 30 GB of music ^^

Woah, after a few hours it just synced the missing titles to my phone... just so.

Yeah, there seems to be a lag between updates getting to your computer. Hoping they improve syncing soon.
