    Hey everyone, has anyone else experienced iTunes slowing down to a snails pace when an iPhone or iPad is connected? This started long before I installed beta versions of iOS 5 and iTunes 10.5, so it's not the beta software. Do you know what could be the cause?

    Thanks!

    The cause? iTunes itself is the cause. There's not one fix that will solve it.

    Well, it was literally perfect one week, then it was slow the next. I never changed the software, the OS or anything in fact. I'll keep looking around for a fix.

    I started experiencing this also, but starting with the 10.5 beta 2. As soon as I click on the Apps tab for the iPhone, iTunes (windows x64) slows to a crawl and soon locks completely. During this time, the iPhone (on iOS 5 beta 2) responds perfectly, except still has the spinning "syncing" icon. I have made sure my mobile apps folder is on my local drive, and I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling. I'm out of ideas. Has anyone successfully resolved this?
