    Just in the last couple of weeks everytime I try to synch my iPhone 5s to my Mac it wants to resynch EVERY SINGLE TUNE in the library.
    Often when I start the synch the capacity bar in iTunes show that I've 50+GB free before it suddenly jumps up to the real capacity of only 5 or so GB free then it starts to copy all 7,000+ tunes.
    I let it do this once (took a day) last week but now it wants to do it again... serious wtf!!!
    Anyone have any advice about what's going on here??? And more importantly how to fix it?

    Do the following two things:

    In iTunes, open your iPhone's page and check "sync only checked music" or something to that effect. Should be somewhere at the left side of the page.

    Then go to iTunes preferences, to the Devices tab, and check "Prevent iPods, iPhones, and iPads from syncing automatically."

    SHOULD do the trick.
