I have a bunch of music tracks that are either longer than two hours or larger than 200Mb (DJ sets) that I'd like to play from my iPhone, along with a whole lot of "normal"-length music. These large tracks are not supported by iCloud Music Library.

How can I sync these large tracks to my phone once I enable iCloud Music Library?

(I realise this may functionally be a duplicate of some previous questions but I'm hoping the "long DJ sets" framing is a solved problem for somebody.)

  • Files maybe is one option.. not so convenient as having an organised library

  • Will they end up as part of my music library, and searchable and playable from the Music app if I add them via Files? Commented Oct 15, 2019 at 15:59
  • sadly, no.. That's what I meant by inconvenience

It’s still not possible so I’ve worked around the problem by removing the long tracks from my music library and managing them with Evermusic instead. Seems to be working well so far.
