And so, in 2011, when Apple announced iTunes Match, a service that would make your entire iTunes music library — from all of those CDs you bought and Limewire songs you downloaded — available on all of your Apple devices, it was BIG. The $25 per year service scans and matches your entire iTunes library from one device, and makes your music available to. Step 1: First of all, download or update the latest iTunes on your computer, and then install it. Step 2: Launch iTunes and connect your iPhone with computer via a USB cable. Step 3: Click on the device icon at the upper left corner. From the right-side menu, click on 'Music' and then select 'Sync Music' on the top.
If you've finally sorted out what happens to your music when you cancel your iTunes Match or Apple Music subscription—like maybe from TMO'sinfographic explaining it all—but have no idea which songs in your iTunes library are yours and which come from Apple Music, we've got you covered. Read on to learn how to see which songs in your iTunes library are streaming, stored locally, or downloaded from Apple Music.
- There’s good news: As long as you download all of your iCloud Music Library songs to a computer, they’re safe. If you want to cancel iTunes Match, but are afraid of losing all of your music, don’t be. When you first signed up for iTunes Match, Apple either matched or uploaded songs from your original iTunes library to a server.
- I have purchased iTunes Match and cannot find out how do download all my songs to iTunes on my iPhone at one time. It seem as if you need to click on each song to download (bad), or you can click on each album and download all the songs on the album (better, but not great). There should be an easy way to do this (download all button).
- Launch iTunes.
- Select the My Music tab or Playlists tab. Either will work.
- Click the View drop down menu. It's on the right side of the iTunes window just below the search field. It shows your current view type; in my case, that's Songs, but it can also show Albums, Artists, Composers, or Genres.
- Click the Show Columns pop-up menu.
- Select iCloud Download.
- Select iCloud Status.
You can add status columns to show details about your iCloud music
You should now have two new columns in your personal library music views showing whether or not a track is available for download, and if the song has been uploaded to your iCloud Music Library is matched via iTunes Match, if it's purchased, or if it's from Apple Music.
Now it's easy to see if songs are purchased...
The iCloud Download column uses icons to show a song's status. A cloud with an arrow pointing down means you can download the song, a cloud with a slash through it means the item isn't eligible for upload via iTunes Match, and no icon means it's in your local iTunes library. If you want to download a song to your iTunes library, just click the Available for Download icon to suck it through the Internet and onto your hard drive.
...Apple Music, streaming, or on your local drive

Apple has a few more iCloud status icons, too. A cloud with an exclamation point means the song upload failed or the file is corrupt. An x means the song file has been removed, a dotted outline cloud means the song is waiting to be processed by iTunes Match, and double clouds with a slash through them means the song is a duplicate.
The iCloud Status column is pretty straight forward since it shows actual words instead of icons.
Adding a couple columns to your iTunes music display may not be as cool pop-up bubbles or Siri announcing song statuses for you, but it's still pretty cool because now you can see at a glance where songs are and whether or not they're from Apple Music.
Within Apple’s new iCloud service, you can sync, back up your devices, and locate friends—but if you want to manage your music and purchases, look to the service’s iTunes in the Cloud initiative: For free, you can automatically download any new purchases across all your devices, and access any past purchases (still available on iTunes); pay an extra $25 a year, and you can store and stream your music online with iTunes Match. Here’s how these all work.
Both iOS 5 and iTunes 10.5 include an automatic downloads feature that lets you choose to have your device or computer automatically download any music, books, and/or apps you buy on other iTunes-running computers or iOS devices. (Note that it also works with any free content in those categories that you’ve downloaded.)
iTunes: To set up automatic downloads in iTunes, go to the Store tab of iTunes’s preferences. At the top, you’ll see an Automatic Downloads section, in which you can individually enable the downloading of music, apps, and books purchased using your iTunes ID. Click in the box next to each that you want to enable and then click OK.

iOS: On an iOS device, go to Settings -> Store and you’ll see the same Music, Apps, and Books options as in iTunes. To the right of each option is a toggle switch that turns downloading on or off for each type of content.
One particularly nice use of the automatic downloads feature comes with regards to books. Starting with iTunes 10.3, Apple has allowed you to browse and purchase (but not read) books from the iBookstore from within iTunes itself. Even on the iPad’s large screen, an iOS device isn’t the best way to look at the vast selection of books on offer, so if you set up books downloading on your device, you can find and purchase a book from your computer and then have it ready for you to read the next time you launch iBooks on your iPad.
Previously purchased content
Another part of iTunes in the Cloud is the ability to re-download previously purchased content. Previously, this was available in beta for users of iTunes 10.3 and iOS 4; with iCloud’s release, it’s available for all iTunes 10.5 and iOS 5 users. Apple now lets you re-download any music, books, apps (you could always re-download apps, but it wasn’t an obvious process), and TV shows (in the U.S. only) that you’ve obtained via the iTunes Store, App Store, or iBookstore in the past. (Note that you may not be able to download content that’s no longer available from Apple’s various stores.)
Apple currently doesn’t let you re-download movies, audiobooks, or podcasts.
iTunes: In iTunes, visit the iTunes Store and then locate the Purchased link in the Quick Links sidebar on the right side. Once in the Purchased interface, you’ll see Music, TV Shows, Apps, and Books tabs across the top. Click on any of them to see the content available to you.

For each category, you can choose different view and sort options (viewing music by songs or albums, for example) as well as search your content using a search box on the left side of the window. At the far right, you can choose between having iTunes display all purchases, or just those not in the respective iTunes library.
To download, click the cloud icon next to a song, album, music video (found under Music), TV show, app, or book to begin the download process. You can also download all your music or individual TV show seasons by using a Download All button.
iOS: On iOS devices, the process is much more fragmented. For music, launch the iTunes Store app, and tap the Purchased button at the bottom. From there, choose between Music and TV Shows (via a pop-up menu on the iPad or from the Purchased screen on the iPhone), and the process works similar to that on iTunes. A Recent Purchases link shows you newer content, and the interface provides a few different ways to view your stuff. As with iTunes, you can choose between All and Not On This iPhone/iPod/iPad. Use the cloud icon to download.
For apps, launch the App Store app. Tap the Purchased button (iPad) or Updates button and then the Purchased link at the top (iPhone) to see your previously download apps by download date (newest first). Here, too, you can see all apps or just those you haven’t installed. And on the iPad, you can choose between viewing iPad-specific/universal apps and iPhone apps. Tap the icon to download.
For books, launch iBooks and go to the iBookstore. If you see your library when you launch iBooks, tap the Store button in the upper left corner (iPad) or upper right corner (iPhone). From there, tap the Purchased button at the bottom right of the screen and you’ll see a list of all the iBookstore purchases you’ve made in the past. Tap to download.
Apple TV: One other advantage of the iTunes in the Cloud functionality is that the second-generation Apple TV can stream previously-purchased TV shows over the Internet, rather than making you keep them housed on a computer using Apple’s Home Sharing feature or streaming them locally using AirPlay.
iTunes Match is an optional subscription service that Apple plans to roll out to customers in the U.S. by the end of October. For $25, it offers both music storage and, in some cases, music upgrades.

It works by uploading a database of your iTunes music library to Apple’s servers. It then compares that list with the 20 million tracks offered in the iTunes Store; anything already available from Apple becomes instantly downloadable to your iOS devices and other computers running iTunes in 256-kbps AAC format—even if your songs are low-quality MP3 files ripped from your CDs years ago.
For music that the service can’t match up with iTunes Store content, iTunes Match lets you upload the actual tracks to the iCloud servers. The end result is that all of your music—or at least up to 25,000 non-purchased tracks—is available for you to listen to and download to any of your iOS devices or computers running iTunes.
We’ll have many more details on how it works when iTunes Match is available later in the month.
