Syncing non-purchased music stored in iCloud Music Library to new iPad

2018-03-22 13:44:44

I have a iCloud Music Library membership because I have a number of devices and it simplifies syncing my music libraries.

I recently had to replace an iPad that had stopped charging under warranty and restored it's content from a backup of old iPad. However my music wasn't restored as I expected.

All the songs are showing the iCloud icon meaning they are not on the iPad. I found out how to restored purchased music and now thats all back. However music that I added isn't restored by that process.

I can download each file individually, but that's a pain going through thousands of file tapping the download icon on each one to download it.

I searched the web but there doesn't seem to be any way to say "Download all missing music".

Anyone know how to do this?
