Apple Music is one of the best music playback options when you have a local library of unreleased songs, live concerts or premixes. This method will also allow you to sync high quality music to your iPhone.

While not entirely obvious, it is quite easy to sync your PC's local library as well as the Apple Music cloud library to your iPhone or iPad.
While this doesn't work perfectly and has its downsides, Apple Music will allow you to import your own music into the service. This will create a hybrid library. Here's how to do it:
How to sync local iTunes library when subscribing to Apple Music
- Before opening iTunes on your Mac or PC, go to your device IOS in Settings => Music and turn off iCloud Music Library.
- Now go to iTunes on your Mac or PC, click on your iPhone or iPad icon in the top left corner, click on music and choose which songs you want to sync. iTunes will only sync what's downloaded on your Mac or PC.
- Wait until the sync with iTunes is complete and turn on iCloud Music Library again.
- A pop-up dialog will appear asking if you want to keep your music or delete and replace. Selecting Remove and Replace replaces your music on your device with content from your iCloud Music Library. As your Mac already keeps a copy of all downloaded music. Your cloud music library will appear in the Music app. Loading the library to iPhone or iPad can take several minutes depending on its size. Moreover, if the service Apple has better quality music, it will automatically replace the one that is less suitable for listening. Now music from your Mac or PC will be available on any of your devices Apple.
This method will work since iOS 11.3, hopefully it will work in future versions iOS. This is quite a solution for those users who want their local library to sync with their iPhone for a variety of reasons. For example, as access to unreleased songs, remixes, higher quality versions of already released music, own compositions, or music that will never appear in Apple Music for a number of other reasons.
