What to Do if Your iCloud Music Library Disappears

I’ve been hearing from readers, and from people in my Twitter feed, about a curious problem. All of a sudden, some people’s iTunes libraries disappear. Maybe not all of it; just the music they’ve added to their iCloud Music Library from Apple Music.

It turns out that, in some cases, all you need to do is check a box to get it back. Go to iTunes > Preferences, and click General. If the box next to iCloud Music Library isn’t checked, check it.

It’s unclear why this setting gets turned off for some users, but reports suggest that it’s not an uncommon problem. Fortunately, the fix is simple.

  1. Yes, I’ve had this happen to me. Luckily, I had to go into iTunes preferences for some other reason and noticed the unchecked option before I even noticed that part of my library was missing . No idea either why that option unchecked itself.
