    Syncs don't complete, it syncs artwork every time but doesn't transfer all of it over.. iTunes hangs at "Waiting to apply changes".. it seems syncing music is completely broken in iOS 8 GM.

    Anyone else having this experience?

    Do you have the latest version of iTunes?

    Using iTunes 11.4; the update specifically said it was for iOS 8.

    Well well well, how interesting.

    I traced the problem down to ONE song that wasn't syncing correctly. When you click on "Music" on the phone when it's connected, it would show up greyed out with a dotted circle in the lefthand column.

    After removing this song from my library, restarting the phone, clearing out all the music (again!) and syncing, everything seems to be working correctly.

    *crosses fingers*

    So if you're having problems syncing, look in the Music list on your phone (while it's connected to iTunes) for tracks that failed to sync.

    The funny thing is this was a track that was downloaded from the iTunes store. But it's an old DRMed version of a track I've since acquired sans-DRM, so it doesn't matter and I deleted it. I'd expect any problems to be caused by NON-iTunes Store content!
