    So I plugged my ipad retina into my MBPr and it asked if I wanted to update the OS on my ipad retina to the latest OS. I chose yes and then it restarts my ipad in recovery mode asking me to connect it to my comp. However it crashes Itunes everytime and I can no longer update my ipad retina it's just stuck in recovery mode the entire time.

    Anybody got any ideas?

    Don't sync your iPad with iTunes 12!!!!

    Hey

    I have been on the Beta for the last month and till the update to iTunes 12 yesterday all was fine. But now there is no way I can have iTunes 12 running while my iPad is connected - instant crashes - repentantly.
    Tried moving old settings / complete re-install of 10.10 - no effect. Seeing more and more users having that problem - I can only hope for quick fix and advise not to install and run iTunes 12 if you wish to still sync with your iPad.
    If you don't need the sync - iTunes 12 isn't to bad...

    best

    I'm also having the same issue, I was attempting to restore my iPad Air with iOS 8 GM. iTunes 12.0.0.97 crashes upon plugging in iPad in restore mode.

    Everything is up-to-date software wise and my hardware specs are in my signature.

    Any help would be truly appreciated.

    It's a known bug. You'll have to roll back to iTunes 11 to install.

    Just download and install Xcode 6 beta for Yosemite and the crashes on iTunes 12 will get fixed.
