    I deleted that playlist the second I saw it.
    I don't see the added value of it for me.

    As for the difference in order, there is no explanation. It could be in order of purchase date maybe on the phone and whatever sort order you have selected on the Mac.

    I use it a lot on both devices so it's annoying for it to be in 2 different orders

    I rarely use iTunes on my Mac. That being said, it doesn't really bother me that purchased music is in different orders. I'm sure the order on iPhone has something to do with it being a mobile device and Apple is somehow prioritizing our music.

    I don't have a purchased playlist. Deleted it the second I saw it. I have enough playlists as is.

    I don't feel offended very much so you're good

    My playlists are all by default sorted by artist > album >song titles

    I.e.

    With 9k songs I have shuffle enabled anyway. Depending on my mood I sometimes play songs from one album or one artist or a playlist. I even have playlists sorted in centuries, in genre and a playlist with all my 'loved' songs.

    Ps: I'm on iOS 10, that's why the interface looks a little different than what you probably have.
