Good afternoon all,

This is my first post here, and I apologise for seeking help, but I am a fool.

I just bought an M1 Mac Mini, and have successfully migrated everything from my trusty old 2012 i7 Mini. However, it appears that some time previously, when updated the OS on my old Mini, I failed to copy my music playlists within the Music application. I thought it was a good idea to carry out a fresh Time Machine backup prior to migration, and thus, lost all previous backups.

To cut a sorry story short, I have all my music files on an external HDD, but have lost my playlist library. That said, my music library is completely intact on my iPad Air (4th gen), including playlists, but I can't seem to find a way to sync from my iPad to my Mac.

Does anyone have a solution to this please?
