A Genius playlist is a grouping of similar artists, songs and genres in your music library that can be synchronized from iTunes to your Apple devices. Genius playlists are limited to 50 songs in order to create a concise playlist for your listening pleasure. If you want to increase the size of the Genius playlist to include as many songs as possible, the Genius's settings are configurable through the iTunes program and can be increased from the standard 50 to the maximum of 100 songs per playlist.
