    the music I download is not from iTunes. I get it on my computer from somewhere else. with the new ios7 maybe it doesn't have those recently added/played playlists because its not officially downloaded from iTunes store?

    I've been trying to figure out this issue since iOS 6 came out about a year ago and I haven't found one yet. On iOS 5 it displays properly but on iOS 6 & up it does not. The only thing I've found to work so far is to uncheck live updating of the playlist. I know it defeats the purpose of the playlist to begin with but it's the best I've got.

    Glad to know that I am not the only one with this issue.
    I too download songs from elsewhere (although some via iTunes Store) and sync them to iTunes Music Library.

    With my previous iPhone 5 (64GB), I did not face any such issue, as all the new songs added to the Library when sync'd with the iPhone got updated to the 'Recently Added' Playlist.
    I believe it is the iOS7 software issue, because when I upgraded my OS from iOS 6 to 7 on my iPhone 5, it was here that I first faced this issue.

    Since I was waiting for my new iPhone 5S to arrive, I did not let this bother me too much.

    But having had the iPhone 5S (64GB) for the past three weeks now, I did see this issue cropping up every single time.

    That being said, the only workaround I have found is to:

    1. Sync the iPhone and transfer all your music (any new ones, that is) from iTunes to iPhone.
    2. Safely eject the iPhone from your computer/iMac/MacBook and then restart your iPhone (press the Lock switch and TouchID button simultaneously).
    3. Re-Sync the iPhone to iTunes and you should be able to see this issue resolved.

    This is just a temporary fix and I'm hoping that Apple will get this fixed in their next iOS7 update.

    On another note, I have found that downloading and updating apps on iTunes need not necessarily be updated on the iPhone during synchronising stage.
    In order to save my data (on my iPhone plan), I downloaded all the free Apple apps via iTunes. But when trying to add them to the iPhone, I could not do it.

    Eventually I downloaded them from my iPhone itself. This same update issue did come when the apps were updated on iTunes but when synching the iPhone, the apps (in the iPhone) were seen to be not updated.
    I did wipe my iTunes from my laptop and did another clean install, but the issue still persists.

    The only workaround to this is to download/update app directly from my iPhone itself.
    I find that to be strange and I guess iOS7 does have a long way to go for it to be problem free like its previous versions.

    Please go to Apple - Support and report this problem. I chatted with Apple today and wanted to know why they haven't fixed the problem yet, and they said not many people have reported the problem.

    Thanks!
