    I have a new iPad 9.7 wireless version (not the Pro.) I see all my songs from iTunes in my library on my iPad. But I don't see any of the Playlists that I have on both my MacBook and iPhone. I tried syncing the iPad manually to the MacBook via a USB cord/port. But nothing changed. Can someone help me?

    OK, thanks for the additional information.

    The playlists should sync. ;) I wonder if they are just in a different place. Have you tried switching the Music > Library on the iPad to Downloaded Music, then see if the playlists are there?

    Thanks. When I go to Music > Library on the iPad, I don’t see the option for Downloaded Music. I see these options: Recently Added, Playlists, Artists, Albums, Songs. When I go to Playlists, it is empty. Any suggestions?
