    I just upgraded my iPhone to 8.4 - exploring the Music app now.

    All my own playlists are gone. Nothing left except for "Recently added". Does anyone have the same problem?
    How do I get my playlists back?

    (I did not activate the iTunes Music subscription, and I don't have iTunes Match)

    Also: How do I create a Genius playlist with the new version of "Music"?

    Something's wrong with playlists. After I created one, it won't let me save any songs to it. It looks like they save, but they immediately vanish.

    And why can I "heart" songs on some screens but not on others???

    This thing is a bit of a mess....

    Playlists are gone after the upgrade and Subscription. I suspect you will have to sync with iTunes again to get them back. Al of my songs are there - just no playlists.

    Genius is still there. Press the more info button on a song and then genius.

    Ok - thanks for the hints.

    Playlists re-appear after syncing to iTunes. Thank god. Including the genius-generated lists I had.

    Genius: Yes, it is in the list of "more" functions - but not on the "now playing" song, not on the full-screen "now playing" display - but only on the list of songs (as part of an album, above "now playing" in the list display). Not ideal - but manageable.
