Local files won't stay synced

Local files won't stay synced



whenever i try to sync local files with my iphone i put them in a playlist, connect the iphone with the same wifi like my mac and then i make them available for offline mode.


but when they finished syncing and all the tracks are in the "local files" list and i delete the playlist i synced the local files with, all local files disappear and the "local files" list shows "0 songs"


before the update the local files remained on the iphone even if i deleted the playlist i synced them with onto my phone.


is it a bug?


can you help me please?


P.S.: next to the "local files" playlist there is no green arrow when i finished syncing the songs. but next to the playlist i put on offline available there is one. (Before the update there was a green arrow next to "local files")

I think this is happening because you have deleted the playlist.


The built in "Local Files" playlist does not have an "available offline" switch next to it. You will need to make a new playlist for your local files. Then add all the local files into that playlist and switch on the "available offline" option.


Make sure not to delete this playlist.
