I upgraded by ipad to IOS 6.0.

Now when I tried to sync my photos from itunes, the order of the photos is all messed up.

In IOS 5.0, my photos on ipad were sorted by date taken. With IOS 6.0, my photos on ipad are sorted by date modified. Is there some way that I can force it to go with date taken? I hate this new order.

The photos in iphoto show up the way I want to see them (date taken). How can I get this order on ipad and iphone?

iPad 2, iOS 6.0.1, Iphoto

    I have the same problem but with viewing photos on Apple TV.  Apple support merely claims this is now normal behavior although it worked properly previously.  This has essentially rendered major functionality of the Apple TV to be now non-existent.  Saddest thing is no one at Apple will even acknowledge that this is a problem.

    These are iOS issues and you should ask about them on the iOS forums.

    @Terence.  Your view is different than that of several Apple senior advisors who are focused on the the problem being related to iPhoto. Their reasoning probably stems from the fact that twice the issue occurred immediatley after an iPhoto update and if we create a new library everything works perfectly.  The first instance was solved partially by resolving the ampersand issues i.e. photos appeared but they were no longer properly sorted rendering the program essentially useless.  The current update prevents photos appearing on any device or even being recognized by iTunes.


    Your advice is always appreciated but vague dismissals of the problem are not.

    But the reports I see on here refer to this occurring after updating to iOS 6? Whatever.

    The problems reported here occurred right after updating to iOS according to the users as TD mentioned. 


    It's a compatibility problem between iPhoto and iOS6 that the only workaround would be to possibly batch change the date of the photos in iPhoto . Therefore we'll have to wait for it to be fixed with either an iPhoto update or an iOS update, which ever Apple feels is the proper item to to be changed.


    If they update iPhoto first (which is probably what they'll do) it'll be called an iPhoto problem.
