Hi all,

Somehow, upgrading to IOS 16 has managed to rearrange the play order of several of my playlists. It’s very strange, because it didn’t happen to all of them, just some of them. Anyway, does anyone know if there’s a way to revert back to the original order without manually going in and putting everything back the way it was?
TIA,
Donna

I think you can change the sort order now. I have not played with this feature though.

If there is a way to do that, I sure don’t see it. There’s an edit button, and when I click on that it looks the way it used to. That is to say, I think I could manually drag songs to the place that I want them. But there is no way to drag a whole group of songs, as an a whole album, and there is nothing that says sort.
Cheers,
Donna.

So, according to what a Google search has turned up, to sort playlists, you tap on the three-dots icon at the top of the playlist. problem is, there isn’t one. There is something that says more, but tapping on it does not bring up a sorting menu. I swear that IOS 16 is the biggest piece of crap I’ve seen come out of Apple. It’s almost enough to make me switch to Android. *sigh*
