Whatever device it is that you dont have the “iCloud Music Library” option available to click on is logged into a different apple ID. I had this problem getting apple music on my Mac, I had signed up on my iphone. if it does work on one device, check in the settings and see what it says is the apple ID linked to the apple music account. I had been logged in under an old ID on my Macs Itunes. I signed out and signed back in with my more recent ID from my phone and apple music turned on automatically, and the “iCloud Music Library” appeared in my preferences menu. Hope this helps

I have been searching for the same answer when I came across your question and have also gone round in circles! Nobody takes note of the third sentence of your third paragraph! As youve had no reply I dont know if the following is any help.

I noticed a remark in passing on one website a comment which suggests that Settings > Music > Join Apple Music (its in blue lettering) must be invoked to have the iCloud Music Library option appear. Im working with an iPod so the iPad Airs may be different. Tapping it takes me to having to start a 3 month free trial to join the Apple streaming service – not something I would intend doing as I probably have all the music to which I can listen having everything from 78s to CDs and the odd download as part of my collection.

However, if you have elected for Apple Music on your iPad and your husband has not could that be the answer? The problem may be nothing to do with this and my suggestion is a stab in the dark; with all the Apple experts out there being a complete novice Im sure this will not be an answer.

I was having the same issue with my iPad and going crazy cause no information could be found online. You might have found the issue since the last post, but in case you havent, heres what I was what seemed to be my issue:

On my iPad, Id apparently signed into one iCloud account and another iTunes & App Store account. Once both accounts were the same, the iCloud Music Library “magically” appeared on my iPad.
