    I’m having a terrible time with this issue so thanks for these detailed instructions. However, when I go to sync my iphone 6 (ios8) with my Macbook Air (Yosemite) and I click on the Music tab, I do not see the option to sync with all music. The only option I have is to sync voice memos. Argh. At the top of the screen, it says iTunes Match is On. However, I have repeatedly turned iTunes Match off in iTunes (under Store) and on the iPhone (just as you instructed). What else can I do? This is driving me mad. Thanks!
