View Full Version : iPhone not syncing album titles/info correctly? If you're having iTunes issues...

I will keep this short and sweet.

I like to tag my music library as cleanly as possible, so I always erase "Deluxe Version" out of album titles.

My iPhone 5 synced my existing library fine, but when I purchased a new song today and erased the Deluxe tag, and then synced, it still shows up on my iPhone with the "Deluxe Version" title. It's not a tagging issue because it synced just fine on my iPod Nano 7G.

Edit: it's not an iCloud issue either as I don't use iCloud.

What gives? What do I do to fix this?

The same thing is happening to me with album titles. I opened up the iTunes XML file, and the correct info is in there. My guess is this is either a bug or it is grabbing the the titles from the iTunes Store. Super annoying.

My solution was to use this software to strip all the tags and start over from scratch. Worked.

I seem to have the same problem.

Initial sync form iMac to iPhone works fine BUT if i change the name of an album in iTunes, then sync, the change is not reflected in the Music app. on the iPhone.

I talked to Apple support but they could not fix the problem, so I logged a bug report on apple.com.

Anyone else have this problem?

Same exact issue. Very frustrating! :mad:

I think it is very strange that something so basic does not work. I was hoping that iTunes 11.1.4 would fix the problem, but it didn't :-(

I also hate the way in the Music app. if you look at all the albums for a given artist they are sorted by album date.

I find that deleting all music from my phone and resyncing usually solves any tag issues I have.

That was the one workaround Apple suggested BUT I have around 120GB of music on my iPad and syncing takes almost for forever.
