Check these things first
Check your settings and network connection on all of your devices:
- Make sure that your devices have the latest version of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, or iTunes for Windows.
- Make sure that Sync Library is turned on for all of your devices.
- Connect all of your devices to the Internet.
- Visit the Apple System Status page to see if there are interruptions in service in your country or region.
Apple Music isn't a backup service. Make sure to back up your music library before you make any changes.
If you can't find or play a song
If you can't find or play a song, check if you added it from Apple Music. If it came from another source, the song might be waiting to upload. Try these steps:
- Turn on your Mac or PC and connect it to the Internet.
- Open the Music app or iTunes for Windows.
- Keep the Music app or iTunes for Windows open so your library can finish uploading.
If you see an ineligible icon next to a song, delete the song, then add it back to your library. If you still see an ineligible icon next to a song, then that song can’t be uploaded.
If a song is grayed out, then the song might be waiting to upload, no longer available, or not yet released from the Apple Music catalog.
If a song is missing
Make sure that all of your devices have Sync Library turned on, and signed in with the same Apple ID.
If you’re still missing a song that you added from the Apple Music catalog, then the song might have been removed from Apple Music or is available under a different file name. Try searching Apple Music for the song, then add it to your library.
Turn Sync Library off, then turn it back on
