PSA: Don't Forget to Re-enable iCloud Music Library Playlist Support on Your iPhone


So, as you might have noticed,  I finally upgraded to a new iMac 27-inch with 5K Retina display recently.

While cleaning up my data for the move from my 2009 17-inch MacBook Pro, I decided to switch the email assigned to my iCloud account.  No big, right?  Well, I haven't had any of my iTunes playlists on my iPhone since I logged out of iTunes and back in.  Try as I might to figure out why my playlists wouldn't sync, I was getting stuck.

Until I decided to search the Apple support knowledge base for an answer.  (Article HT204406 fixed my problem.) Turns out that the problem had nothing to do with iCloud, wonky Wi-Fi connections or an alternate iCloud email address.


No, the answer was 100% user error.  The fix, a simple one, was to just turnoff the "iCloud Music Library" sync option.  D'uh!

Problem solved!
