Ok, So i've read several threads on this and I there are some things I completely understand and don't need any clarification on. They are as follows: - I understand that the GM requires iTunes 11.1 to have the ability to sync my iPhone 5. - I understand, even though my iPhone is fully functional, I won't be able to access any of my iTunes software for synacing - I understand iTunes 11.1 beta is available to developers (and am only a registered UDID) and not easily found otherwise. - I understand how to and know the way to return to iOS 6 to fix this syncing problem My Only Question: Will I be alright come September 18th? I want to keep iOS 7 for the time being, because I have gotten really used to it and love it to death, and I don't want to downgrade just to fix a syncing issue. Does anyone think/know if when iTunes 11.1 will be available that it will all of a sudden pick up my iPhone again to fix this syncing issue? I can easily return to 6.1.4 (shoot me in the face) if I absolutely need to, but I would rather just update iTunes later and keep ios 7. Any thoughts or suggestions? I saw a lot of people whining/complaining/freaking-out about the iTunes error, but I didn't see anyone that was asking this question or thinking further than the next hour or so ahead.
