    Hello MacRumors forum,

    Itunes has had trouble syncing my music since I've downloaded iOS 7 beta 3( IPhone 5). It continuously states "Waiting for Items to copy and in the pictures you can see both itunes and the iPhone sync symbol static there, does anyone have a solution/fix for this?

    Are you doing a WiFi sync or are you doing it through the USB?

    It happens to me all the time. It might be a bug with the beta. How long are you waiting???

    Sometimes it can take upto 1 hour

    I have a 4s and I'm having this issue too -- I'm literally trying to add 5 songs to my phone with the usb, and it has been an hour so far. I don't know why it's doing this. the little sync icon isn't frozen but it's 'waiting for items to copy'

    has anyone found a solution?

    I'm also running the beta 5

    Only solution I have heard of to resolve these sync issues with b5 is to download a new "mobile device installer package" that supposedly resolves it. However this is only available for mac not avail for windows.
