    Can I prevent iTunes Match from replacing the music library on my device?-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1412611357.402951.jpg

    Subscribed to iTunes Match last night and while it's useful for my iPad mini Retina because of the limited storage but I have the 128gb iPhone 6 and I just want to use ITunes Radio ad free on it without deleting the music already on it. (I fly a lot and streaming won't work for me)

    Enable it and then go to the music you want on the device in the Music app and re-download it.

    I canceled it be I didn't want it to erase my music

    Enable it and then go to the music you want on the device in the Music app and re-download it.
    I see if I can do it that way.

    Make sure you have a backup of your music. Match gives you access to all of your music on any apple device. So I don't think you music will be deleted. And even if it is, there is a setting to show only music on the device and it's easy to download what you want to keep locally.

    Ok. Here's the update first of all thanks for the help. I enabled it and none of my music disappeared. What a relief
