    I have a question. If I download songs from iTunes Match onto my device, but then I want them removed and sent back to iTunes Match only, how do I do that? I'm trying to do the "Swipe-Delete" function, but it's not working. Any ideas?

    (I'm on the iOS 6 GM)

    Idk, but I still think it sucks. I have songs with explicit lyrics and with music match enabled, it streams a clean version. Screw that crap.

    What you have to do with iOS 6 is turn off iTunes Match then you can swipe to delete.

    Do you then go back into settings and turn match back on? will it then delete the song from the library or only the device?

    It worked much better in ios5 because you could just swipe to delete and it would still be in the cloud.
    More importantly, now, if you have selected show all songs there iis no way to tell if it is in the cloud or downloaded since there is no longer a cloud icon next to songs.

    Is there anyway to change this so you can differentiate which songs are downloaded and which ones are merely in the cloud.

    Why did they mess with it? It is less functional than before.

    Yes. It will only delete from device. Your right you can't tell. No there is no way to change it other than turning off show all music. Idk why they messed with it. It sucks now.

    I suspect they messed with it to avoid confusion for the average user. Most people won't know or care where the song 'physically' is and only us power users will want to carry out a local delete.

    I use iTunes Match. When I want to delete from my device I go to settings. General. Usage. Find music and tap it. You can clear the device library there but your cloud songs will be safe. I use iTunes Match all week then sometime on the weekend just clear the device library for a fresh start.

    I hate the way Match works now. I hope they change it.

    Anyways, a sure fire way to delete ALL local music (either DL or temp cache) is to go into settings, general, usage, show all apps (if nec) , music and delete all from there....

    You can delete all your music at once through settings.
    Settings>General>Usage
    Then select Music>Edit and then delete the music data.
    The music will be deleted from your phone, but it will still be available in the cloud through iTunes Match.

    I use to download SOME song from my cloud library, then just use those songs on my device (turn match off). Now I have no way of know what songs are on the device, you can't download individual songs.

    Let's hope they go back to the old design.

    It is possible to see which songs have been downloaded to your device: Settings>Music>scroll down to "Show All Music and turn "Off".

    Discovered this change last night. Now I have to download a whole album opposed to being able to choose one song from an album.

    You can download individual songs if you create a new playlist and add songs to it. It's also easy to delete those songs from your playlists, or delete the entire playlist. I agree it's not as easy as it was in iOS 5, but I'm getting used to it.

    I'm hoping that this change will be so poorly received and criticized that Apple will revert back to how it was, which worked very well and made sense. The iOS 6 version is an unfortunate mistake that I care much more about than the maps situation...
