Question: iphone 6 or 7 : tracks from albums uploaded with itune 22.214.171.124 (MacOS 10.12.6) are not grouped
Since to update to itune 12.7 or ios 11 (it's difficult to know where is the problem), randomly an album uploaded from my Macbook pro 2012 appear fully splitted on iphone 7 Apple music player.
Note : This problem is also reproducible with an iphone 6 with ios 11. The tracks/albums list from itune are properly sorted in all case. Only the iphone Apple music player make a mess with the contents.
All the tracks from album are MP3. The track are well tagged, with album title, artists, etc... I suspected something wrong in itune ID3 metadata parser, and started to experiment album patched with less metadata to describe album contents. But it's not the case.
In fact the dysfunction appear randomly with you init the transfert from computer to phone. A same album can be uploaded as a single container with all tracks inside as expected, or, fully splitted with each track recognised by an album. Of course this last behavior is fully unsuitbale on the phone. When i want to play music, i search by artist, and i select one album, and finally a specific track.
For me ios 11 or itune 12.7 have big regressions by the way to manage music contents on phone. I use Apple devices since a very long time, and i must admit that the software quality decrease step by step in time especially since September 2017. As i'm senior software engineer specialized in QA, i can judge this king of important changes as a simple user.
Somebody can reproduce the dysfunction in this room ?
iPhone 7, iOS 11.2, null
