Getting the 'iCloud Music Library can't be enabled' error? Here's a fix!

This error usually happens when Apple's servers are being slammed; patience and persistence wins out. Here's how we got iCloud Music Library to work.

How to enable iCloud Music Library on your iPhone and iPad

  1. Launch Settings from the Home screen.
  2. Tap Music (note, the icon has changed colors).
  3. Toggle iCloud Music Library to On.
  4. Choose if you want to Replace or Merge your library. (I ultimately chose Merge when it worked).
  5. If you get the error again, dismiss it.
  6. Repeat steps 3-4 until it works.

You may have to wait a while and repeat, in case the servers are really getting slammed.
