Playlist on iphone not updating
My old songs are still there, but, when I try to add a new song to a playlist, it doesn't appear on my device.However, when I look at my device on i Tunes, it shows up as on my device.Apple makes no representations regarding third-party website accuracy or reliability. OK, here's the deal: With the latest update to both i OS on my i Phone and to i Tunes, I can no longer sync new songs I add to my playlists to my i Phone.Step one ——–The first thing we're going to do is create a Smart Playlist that automatically collects all the music you've added to your i Tunes library in the last few months that you have not yet heard.This is like putting all your newly loaded songs into a firehose and shooting it directly onto your phone.Below the rule, check the "Limit to" box and enter a nice big number. Then for the selection criteria, choose "most recently added." This will load up the 750 most recently added songs.
So only click "Apply" if you're ready to change all the music on your phone.Next, click "Live updating," which lets i Tunes adjust this playlist as you add music and as your play counts change.Finally, name this list "Recently Never Played, for i Phone."Step two ——–That Smart Playlist loads up the i Phone all the brand new music you've never heard. We're going to make a separate playlist for the solid gold hits in your collection, a regular ol' dumb one called "Bona Fides." This is where you put all your Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Stevie Wonder, and the Pixies – basically the music you can't live without.Either way, if your i Tunes library regularly gets bombarded with new music, it's easy for all those incoming files to get lost in the shuffle – particularly if you do the majority of your music listening on an i Phone. Here's a super easy way to make sure all the music you've recently acquired (however you've acquired it), shows up on your i Phone every time you sync.Set it up once, and never neglect a new band again.a lot of vinyl and you've been cashing in all your download cards.Or maybe you just like trading and/or sharing music files with friends.I have a complex smart playlist that uses imbedded smart playlists that works fine on i Tunes, but does not update on my iphone. I will give it a go, next time I am in front of the PC.In reply to others on thread, I am certain that in the earlier versions of i OS, the smart playlists did dynamically update on your iphone, on the condition that the other playlists that it relied on where also synced.If you want to make sure you give each track at least a couple of spins before it disappears off your phone, adjust the rule to "less than" and enter 2.But I recommend starting at 0 – it ensures a higher turnover of new music every time you sync.
