Hey, I’m using an iPad Air 2 (IOS 12.2) and the newest update, I think it was either Tuesday 16 April or Wednesday 17 April, seems to have changed they way my playlists work.
I like to keep my songs in a custom order where all the songs by a certain band/artist are in the same place so they’re all next to each other. So I added a few songs to my playlist the other day (after the update) and I see that where it used to say ‘Edit’ when you clicked the 3 dots at the top it now says ‘Add Songs’, and next to all the songs on my playlist, there’s either 3 dots or a green heart, I clicked on the 3 dots to see if there was a move song option on there but there wasn’t, just all the details of the song like Artist and Album and a Remove Song option.
It seems that you can’t reorder songs on IOS anymore, other than the whole Alphabetical, Newest to Oldest/Oldest to Newest filter anymore, and I don’t know if I’m being stupid or whatever and just can’t find the reorder/edit thing, or if this feature has really been taken down.
If there’s a solution, I’d like to know.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hey there folks,
Thanks for your patience while we were looking into this.
As explained in this support site article, the option to reorder the tracks in a playlist when using a mobile or tablet device is a Premium feature. This would explain what happened here.
Hope this helps clarify things! If there's anything else we can help with, don't hesitate to give us a shout.
Have a lovely day 🙂
