iCloud Music Library disables local sync

    Been playing around a bit more with iTunes on my MacBook Pro. It seems that when iCloud Music Library is enabled in iTunes and in the Music app on my iPhone, the ability to sync locally is disabled. IMHO, it seems a little bit ridiculous to have to download it from Apple over the internet when I have it all right here.

    That's the same thing you see with iTunes Match.

    iTunes Match prior to iTunes 12.2?

    Edit: So I can switch it off iCloud Music Library on my iPhone, do the sync and then turn it back on if I wanted to?

    I haven't tried with the latest version of iTunes but that has worked in the past.

    Just registered on the forum and this topic answered a question I've been trying to solve on my own for ages. Well, since the introduction of Apple Music anyway. Thanks both!
