Hey guys I finally figured out the Apple Music so basically after you finish downloading the music on your phone and turn back on Apple Music in the setting you won't lose your music it will just merge with the new music that you download I hope this helps

anyone know how to do this for an ipod 6th gen?

Philip Quaglino says:

Ohhh apple, how you want to force people to install iTunes everywhere and sync, sync, sync, sync, sync. Meanwhile in Droid land…..Plug in phone, Go to phone, open DCIM>Music>Drag and drop……done.

Apple? Go on a mysterious quest through iTunes, find where they moved things, click "Manually add music" get warning…"Cautions to manually add music we need to sync your phone first, you will lose all your music…hit next please!" You decide you do not want to lose music, unplug and forget adding new music from a new computer. I blame Jobs who wanted everything closed shut.

Look, to keep your icloud music AND add music from your computer to your iphone do this:

go into itunes, and go to the song/album you want on your phone and click the cloud on the right of it, it should have an X in it.

right click it, and add to icloud library. Some songs wont go in, but most will. Just give it time to load, but it works for me.

Darren James says:

Thanks for the video, i have never bought apple products. I purchase a nano 6th gen ipod for my wife, signed up to itunes and downloaded music. Cant transfer or sync music to ipod. There is no option to turn on or off the stupid icloud. It looks like it works using your method, but nothing actually goes across. Ready to toss the stupid thing in the bin. Are there any other short cuts to making this work, when you dont have the option to turn icloud on or off on the ipod. Thanks

Taur Fox says:

Awesome! Thanks a bunch; was driving me up a wall trying to figure this out 🙂
