I’m having issues, with iTunes Match. I stopped my subscription a year or two ago but as I’ve got HomePod’s now to replace the Amazon devices, I thought it would be an ideal time to move back.
However, a lot of my songs are currently refusing to upload.
For example, I have the following album on my Mac.
On the iPhone, this is showing up as not all the songs have uploaded, which matches the songs on Music.
However, repeated attempts to update the music library (File > Library > Update Cloud Library) does not upload the files. The files in this example are M4A files. In fact, random samples of the songs that haven’t been matched or uploaded appear to all be M4A files, so perhaps these are files I downloaded previously from iTunes Match.
Tapping the music file on the iOS device tells me that the song is not available within my country or region - which isn’t the case when I visit the iTunes Store.
Any ideas how to get these files to upload? There’s quite a large number.
I’m beginning to think that Apple Music may be instead the easier option…
