I sync all my music with my iPhone. But for some reason the Genius mixes are different. This upset me because my Mac has an awesome Classic Rock mix and my iPhone doesn't.

Is it possible to sync Genius playlists between my iPhone and my Mac?

Do you sync all the music and playlist on the Mac with your iPhone? It could be that you are leaving out some bits when syncing, and hence the difference. – jaume Nov 16 '12 at 11:32
My iPhone broke ... heh. I'll gladly check and reply as soon as it's back. – Paulo Casaretto Nov 19 '12 at 15:43
Good luck while trying to bring your iPhone back to life... – jaume Nov 19 '12 at 20:20
It is set to sync all music and playlists. I get some really weird mixes on the iPhone, some with less than 5 songs. – Paulo Casaretto Jan 2 '13 at 14:52
Have you tried first resetting your iPhone ( and then syncing with iTunes? – jaume Jan 2 '13 at 18:55
