Smart Playlist Sort Issue on iOS 10.2

    I created a Smart Playlist using iTunes listing tracks I have not yet listened to (Plays is 0) and View Options (View As: Playlist and Sort by: Date Added). The playlist displays correctly in iTunes with album tracks appearing in the same order as when viewing the album.

    However, when viewing the same Smart Playlist in Apple Music iOS 10.2, the albums appear in the correct order (Last Added), but the tracks are in random order within Album.

    This looks like another famous iTunes Playlist bug? Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I was thinking of reloading the iCould Music library on my phone but don't think that is the issue.

    Thanks, Phil

    There have been playlist sort issues since iTunes Match was released. There's no way to fix this, other than to try deleting and re-adding the playlist.

    Hi Kirk,

    Just to clarify, I am not using iTunes Match and all music is from Apple Music using iCloud.

    Thanks, Phil

    Think of iTunes Match as a proto-iCloud Music Library. They have the same issues.
