How to Sort Your Playlists in Apple Music

  • Open the Music app on iPhone.

  • Select the Library tab at the bottom and choose Playlists.

  • In the top right corner of the screen, select Sort.

  • You can choose to sort playlists by: Playlist Type, Title, or Recently Added.

All that’s left to do is find the playlist you want to play and begin.

I personally sort my Apple Music playlists by Recently Added; I create new playlists often and rarely visit the olds ones. By selecting Recently Added, I’m nearly guaranteed the one I want to listen to will be near the top.
