How do I disable shuffle?

How do I disable shuffle?




iPhone 11, 14.3

Every time I press the start button to start playing an album, it goes back into shuffle mode. Yes I know there are extra steps I can do to turn off shuffle at the point, but it's too late because it's already jumped to somewhere part way through the album. 


Is there a way I can completely disable shuffle so that it doesn't keep coming back?

When you go into an album in the iOS app, the green play button is to shuffle play the entire album. The green play button has a little white shuffle icon below it to indicate this. To play the album in order, tap on the first song in the playlist and it will start playing in order. I can understand how this can be confusing though, I agree that there should be a play button and a shuffle button side by side or some other way to improve how to play a playlist.


When shuffle is turned on, you can tap the mini player at the bottom of the screen to open up the full size player and then tap on the shuffle button to turn it off.
