    hi my question is on iTunes on the mac there's a section called recently added that adds recent songs to your library. However I noticed on my iTunes on the mac it seems to be adding all my songs I ever added to this section. Can you confirm this is normal behaviour I was told it was but wanted to confirm. If it is it seems a bit stupid to call this section recently added if it adds all your songs ever added even from a number of years ago

    I have songs from 2007 appearing in recently added on the mac

    However on iOS it seems to only show recently added songs from this month and last 3 months etc and not songs from 2007 etc like the mac does

    Can you please explain what's going on here and are others noticing the same thanks

    Yeah, that doesn't make sense. iTunes used to let you choose the scope of the Recently Added section.

    So this is normal behaviour then ?

    I have experienced similar problems so I never use it and that is why I create my own recently added Smart Playlist with a Date Added as anything after a specified date. You can also enter other parameters if needed. This gives you much more flexibility.

    Thanks. Are you noticing the recently added section appearing with every song ever added in iTunes on the Mac
