Q: "iTunes match not syncing or updating on my iPhone.
For about three weeks now updates on the iTunes Library on my PC are not syncing with or updating on my iPhone even though iTunes Match is "ON" on both my laptop and iPhone. I've switched on and off iTunes match on the phone several times to no effect. When I go to another laptop and open iTunes there I will see the updates from iTunes, but on my phone no update. Please what's the way out of this?”
