    While using Apple Music i noticed that when a smart playlist is created on a mac and with a selected criteria this criteria and organisation does not match across all devices please see the attached screenshots. As you can see its the same smart playlist called "Apple Music" on the iMac the first song is called "Rothesay'O" but the first song on the iOS devices is called "Zoological Gardens. I am very curious to know why is this happening and am I the only one who this is happening to. Surely out of all the users of Apple Music I couldnt be the only one to notice this.

    As you can see the criteria is set to iCloud status is "Name" (Which should store in alphabetical Order but for whatever reason it hasn't" its strange

    In iTunes go to that playlist, change the sort order to something else and change it back to your preferred sort order.

    This should trigger the same sorting on all devices using Music.

    1. Open iTunes
    2. Open the playlist from which the sort order is not like you wish it is.
    3. Sort the songs by Album Title.
    4. Sort the songs now by the sort order you wish it is.
    5. Open that playlist on your iPhone and you'll see now that it is sorted like you wish it is.

    You don't have to edit the playlist in this screen. Just sort them in the overview with all songs in said playlist.

    I am on a windows computer, but I have been googling to show the menu bar on iTunes for Mac to no avail.

    I hope somebody else who knows this will come along and help you out.
