    Strangely, some of the default playlists such as "recently added", "recently played", and "most played" no longer appear on my iphone 6, but do still appear in iTunes. Is this normal, or is it just me?

    Come on. Over 200 views but no one has anything to say? If I had made another thread about RAM or what's the best screen size it would be on its third page by now.

    Am I wrong though? Maybe if I had called it "playlist-gate".

    Seriously though, I just wanted to give the thread a bump before it drifted off the first page. Even a response of "it's just you" would be helpful.

    It's Just You--;)


    Only thing I lost was Tones which is known issue. As much as I love the Plus, I dislike iTunes and iCloud Drive.

    Been using TunsGo Retro to back all that stuff up to iMac--:)

    Truly odd... But some Googling of the issue have yielded reports of this happening as far back as 2012. Haven't yet found an explanation or a fix. Someone here must have some idea, right?

    It's not that big a deal, but now it's mainly curiosity that is driving me.

    Try this. Check selected music and check just the playlists you want and sync. It will erase all music and add just the playlists. After that is done syncing, then go back and load your music back on.

    I've never seen that playlist on any of my devices, only on my computer. Why not just create a new playlist? Or even a smart list? I have several smart list of my favorite Artist(s).

    I appreciate the suggestion. I'm really curious why the playlists in question disappeared in the first place though.

    ----------

    I'm not sure that that would address the underlying problem. The playlists that are missing are not the ones that I specifically create, it's the ones like "recently added" and "recently played". These are obviously dynamic playlists.
    "Recently Played", "Recently Added", and "Most Played" have always appeared on every iPod and iPhone I've owned until now. I miss "recently added" the most because sometimes I just want to listen to the new songs I just added in the past week or so. It would be a little annoying to have to manually make a new playlist for each week.

    Thanks for the suggestion though.

    I also found I had to redo all of my playlists after I restored from my 5S to 6. I do not remember it happening before.

    I also had this issue so I reinstalled my phone as new and all appeared.
