All of the playlists selected for updating first trimester dating ultrasound
Nothing I did in i Tunes on my i Mac would sync to my i Phone (when previously it did), but vice versa it worked fine. Then Switch off i Cloud Music Library within the Music setting (if like me you also had Mobile/Cellular Data already switched off (and I think this mobile data thing is the issue/key here); switch it back on again for both streaming and downloading). When I selected Playlists then everything was syncing correctly. I've concluded it's simply not possible to get it to work correctly Hi I have th next same issue.
Did the same thing as you, logged out of just about everything and logged back in; switched off i Cloud Music Library then on again (deleting the content as I thought it would be simpler than merging), only to end up with nothing on my phone. Finally contacted Apple support and did the following (which ended up fixing the solution for me).1. With Wi-Fi switched off, I needed mobile data switched back on before I was able to switch off i Cloud Music Library. If Yes - then before your data allowance gets gobbled up with the downloads. If like me - No, nothing happened and you eventually get an error message saying that i Cloud Music Library could not be enabled. I waited until all of my music had downloaded, then switched off my Mobile Data setting. I think the issue lies with the Mobile/Cellular Data setting. I reckon something in i OS has got screwed up, and switching it back on when Wi-Fi was off has somehow reset something. Playlists created on i Mac do not sync with my i Phone.
Edit the smart playlist and, instead of random, select Artist. I'm having this same problem with random TV episode smart playlists that I created.
If your Smart Playlist criteria call for "at random," that is what you will get.
my preferences are set to manually manage songs and playlists.
It does not have anything to do with updating the list when the list is already full.
Tony, To an i Tunes Smart Playlist, "Random" applies when the list has an opening.
I tried turning i Cloud Music Library off/on as I read that in a different forum that may help, but all that did was delete my music and now nothing is coming back onto my i Phone. I've deleted many songs from a playlist on my Mac, and they aren't updating on the phone.
Ever since High Sierra and i OS 11, I have had nothing but problems with Apple Music in general.
