    iTunes Match is BROKEN in iOS 6, for me anyway. It keeps hanging on certain songs and not finishing the downloads. I've restarted the phone, turned off iTunes Match and turned it back on, and I've deleted all music in the "usage" menu to try to get it to start over.

    Has anyone had any similar issues?

    Works perfectly for me, on this GM and all betas of iOS 6.

    It was messed up in beta4 for me (there were posts about it here).

    If you turned on Match, it would act like it wiped out the songs on your device.
    When you turn off match, it shows no songs.
    Then, hook it up to iTunes, it shows the songs in the memory allocation (i.e. 12 GBs of music on device) but the phone won't see it when you disconnect.

    I think they fixed it in the GM but I haven't done a full test yet.

    Works for me, but with iOS 6 you can no longer delete from device if you have Match, so I won't be resubscribing.

    A pathetic service.


    No, turning match off and then on does delete everything on your device in iOS 6. It's a design decision, as is being unable to delete songs from said device if Match is turned on.

    Fine here.

    I would wipe your device and DFU restore, then re-enable it.

    Also run a match on your desktop iTunes.

    I turned on itunes match and all my music stayed on the device, as long as it also exists in the cloud. it was like that on iOS 5 too. I don't see a way to delete it off the device except to delete all music.

    I just tested this with the following results:

    1. Make sure some music is already on phone
    2. Turn on iTunes Match
    3. Make sure show all music is checked
    4. You should now have iTunes match music alongside your downloaded.
    5. To delete a song off your phone turn off itunes match
    6. Go back in to music and delete what you want
    7. Then re-enable itunes match.

    Then it is terrible design.

    I don't want them to delete songs already on my phone, but if they are going to do it, go ahead and delete.
    Like I mentioned, all it was doing was telling the music app that the songs were no longer there even though they were on my phone.
    When I hooked up my phone I can clearly see the music.

    That is a bug. Either actually delete the songs or leave them for me to save on bandwidth.
