    HI all

    I dhad the same problems were by my itunes playlist would not show on my ipad 3,  ipad mini or iphone 5.

    i deleted the playlist from itunes on my computer and then created new ones but no luck. I then noticed that if i create a playlist on my ipad then it would show up on my pc. So what worked for my is creat a playlist on idevice (ipad or Iphone) add a song. see it that it comes up on the desktop computer itunes. add a few songs from there to that newly created playlist and hopefully the rest of your playlist should come up on your idevice.

    This is what i did and the playlist then just popped up. Ihope that this may help.

    Found a trick.. This issue has been bugging me since i had my iPhone 5 replaced yesterday


    First: have both iTunes match on, iOS Device and Computer


    Second: change a playlist name. Example "Untitled Playlist" change to "Untitled Playlists" put another letter in there, like i did with the "S".


    Third: go to your device and it should pop up. give it a minute to load it. let me know.

    Settings>General>Usage and delete the Music file.  That worked for me.  Thanks!

    I had tried all of the methodes, but none of them worked for me. However, today, Apple pushed out an update for iTunes with several bug fixes. So I downloaded the update restarted iTunes match on my iPhone and it worked! Hope this will help some other people too.

    I have tried all of the above suggestions and none of them work to get my new playlists on my PC to show on my iPhone 4s. I have upgraded to iTunes I've tried dissabling iTunes Match, re-syncing via USB, and re-enabling iTunes Match. At no time during this process did my new playlists ever show on my phone. Even with iTunes Match dissabled, re-syncing via USB did not make my playlists show on my iPhone. That makes me think this must be more than just an iTunes Match issue. It must be a problem with syncing playlists with iTunes in general. Re-enabling iTunes Match also did not make the new playlists show on the iPhone. Interestingly, all my older playlists which were created before I started using iTunes Match, and before I upgraded iTunes, all show perfectly on my iPhone. I hope Apple fixes this issue soon!

    Problem solved, sort of:

    In each of my newer playlists that weren't showing, there was one song that was not eligible for iCloud. (Cloud icon with a slash though it) Removing that song from the playlist caused it to show imediately on my iPhone.


    The problem with this is, as I mentioned above, I also dissabled iCloud and synced via USB. And without re-enabling iCloud, the playlist still wouldn't show on my iPhone when that song was in it. So perhaps the song is "not eligible for iPhone" in addition to being "not eligible for iCloud". The only trouble with this is there was no indication of this either in iTunes or on the iPhone. I had to figure it out by trial and error and by sleuthing through the playlist to notice the icon.


    What should happen is that the playlist should show on the iPhone and in iCloud but without the offending song. Anyway now I know what to look for if this happens again. I hope this helps others.

    I was having the same problem syncing playlists through iTunes Match. I discovered I had several songs that do not work with iCloud, still do not know why, however they are indicated by a cloud with a stripe through them. After I removed these songs from the playlist it came right up on my phone. Hope this helps.

    Hey guys:


    Sync, update, back up

    make sure Match is turned on

    with phone plugged in go to:

    Music>More>Shared> select the name of your itunes library


    this will share your itunes library with your phone


    and viola


    all of your playlists will be available to you and match will match do its thing!



    Happy New Year!

    After reading all the posts, I have the feeling there is something more fundamentally amiss. With Match turned on (both in iTunes on my iMac and on my iPhone 5), when I go to music with the phone selected in itunes, it does not give me the screen that allows me to select playlists to synch. As though, there is no intention for this.


    When I turn off match on the iPhone 5, all my previously selected playlists are there, but I only have access to what I have synch'd, not what is in the cloud.


    I am able to create new playlists on the iPhone 5, using songs fro the cloud, but as several have mentioned, that would be starting from scratch, and nobody wants to do that.


    Anyone able to select playlists for their IOS device from itunes with match turned on in both places?



  • dteore Level 1 Level 1

    I believe  problem is when you accidentally delete a song within a playlist (or a whole playlist) and undo the action
    by key command (cmd+z) it will get stuck..  (I still took screen shots -just my preference) of the playlist and started deleting the most recent ones..(2) and all genius playlist (since they are easy to recreate).


    I did the following:


    1. RUN iTunes Match to make sure any and all recent music that has been added the iCloud.
      I didn't want to dump all my playlist so I kept a few of them that I knew I had not adjusted at all.

    2. sign out of the stores to disabled MusicMatch setting>> iTunes & App Stores and sign out.

    3. make sure that Music says "No Data"
      • general>> usage>>
        • if Music has any type of file size please
          music>> edit delete it!

    4. restart the phone
    5. Once restrarted sign into the stores and enabled MusicMatch


    The playlist appeared then music and  then the album art!!


    I hope this helps..

    Same Problem. No playlists. Neither on my iPhone nor on my iPad. This *****!

  • Michael Allbritton Level 6 Level 6

    There has been a glitch on the server-side which Apple has fixed. Disable iTM on the iOS device, launch the Music app and let the content clear out, then re-enable the service.

  • MajorTom11 Level 1 Level 1

    Itunes match is the buggiest piece of crap I have ever had the misfortune to use. Apple should be ashamed of itself selling this junk, in fact I want a refund.


    I have succesfully used it once, the rest of the time, it just seems to like overwriting itself and making playlists randomly dissapear on one computer but not the other.


    Garbage. 100%.

    I have had iTunes Match for a week and certain playlists would not sync to iPad or iPhone.  I simply had to remove some songs that would not sync properly to the cloud.   After I deleted the song entirely, I went back to the cloud and downloaded the couple of offending songs. Then added them back to the playlist and wihin seconds the playlists appeared both on my iPad and iPhone.
