I upgraded to ios7 this morning, and now all my albums have their songs out of order. Does anyone know where the setting to change them back to album order is?

I can't find anything to indicate that shuffle is switched on (it does say "Shuffle" in the top right, but when I press it, it just changes to a highlighted "Shuffle All", which I don't think I want.)

Please use the

Settings -> General -> Reset -> Reset All Settings.

to reset your settings after the ios7 installation.

that should take care of your problem.

+1 Thanks Buscar. You are quite correct. It did reset the album order. – Jonathan Sep 19 '13 at 20:53
I did too. Got my tracks into order, but lost other info, including my wallpaper. – user57627 Sep 20 '13 at 15:04
@JohnColeman easy to recover your settings. – Buscar웃 Sep 20 '13 at 15:12

This simple step fixed my song orders and left all my other settings intact.

“Reset iPad. Hold down the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.”
