    Has anyone noticed their genius playlists not appreaing in iOS 5? I updated my iTunes library to iTunes match, and now when I play a song, the genius icon to create a playlist is missing. It works fine in iTunes, but on my iPad and iPhone, there isn't an option to make a genius playlist. Anyone else notice this?

    Yep, this is a known bug with iTunes Match on the iPhone. Smart playlists won't sync properly from iTunes either. It's quite frustrating.

    It's somewhat frustrating for it to just disappear. Like I said, it works fine in iTunes. I even made a list there and downloaded those exact songs from the list on my iPhone to replicate the genius list, thinking i just didn't have enough matches, and nothing.

    I can see my playlists. But nothing genius related.

    I said smart playlists, not genius, they're different.

    Agreed. Yes they are different, but this is pertaining to genius lists.

    same here. No Genius on iPhone & iPad.

    I use(d) it all the time and miss it immensely

    Hope they fix it right away.

    Because it was in response to someone else that said they couldn't get theirs to work.

    Have you read the posts?

    Is Apple aware of this issue? I just noticed Genius is missing from my iPhone with iTunes Match/iCloud active.
