    Since iTunes refuses to service your phone once you download the GM for some reason.

    Wait until the 18th and then download iTunes 11.1. Or you might be able to use an app that gives you access to the file system.

    Doesn't look like you can until iTunes 11.1 comes out for Windows.

    EDIT: My iPhone is syncing music.

    If you are a developer, that means that you have a Macintosh that you can run the iTunes beta on which is available on the developer site.

    If you are not a developer why the heck are you running the GM?

    You could try iFunbox. No idea if it works with iOS 7 devices though.

    I don't think we're doing that any more.

    But to answer your question using my coworkers as an example, developers enlist their friends and family to help test apps. And those developers are very good at getting people excited and telling them how to install the beta / GM, but they aren't so good at warning them about the problems that will crop up and to not use it on their daily driver. The sad part is that these willing victims don't have the expertise to work themselves out of the hole.

    I know, this covers about 0.1% of the non-devs that have problems but the forum is better when empathy is extended without question.

    Big update.

    I installed iOS:7 on my Macbook Pro, and am now syncing my music on my Windows 7 desktop. iTunes version 11.0.5.


    iTunes is now giving me the "Updates to iTunes 11.1 to sync

    Haha it's okay, I've been here for a while now. I'm no noob around iOS devices don't let my join date fool you :p, I've been "beta testing" since iOS 6 or iOS 5, I can't remember which one but I think it was 5 and jailbreaking since the iPhone 3G

    ----------

    Weird. It let me update to the GM on my windows 7 laptop, but no syncing on my windows 7 laptop lol

    Not what you're looking for but iTunes Match will get the songs on the phone (but if you have that then you may not need the songs on the phone). ;)

    You didn't completely redact your name. :) On a related note I almost watched 2001 tonight.

    About 10 minutes after uploading and posting on here, I realised I left one part out. Oh well! If I get some Facebook requests, I'll know why. :cool:

    Why:
    1. Don't you have an iCloud backup?
    2. Don't you backup to iTunes?

    :confused:

    Oddly enough, I do have an iCloud back up and no iTunes back up. Not sure why it didn't show it then.

    I suggest double checking your backups, because this is weird.

    My iPhone is currently restoring from iCloud at the moment. Very slowly to say the least.

    And another update, my iTunes has clicked that my phone is on iOS:7 and now won't let me sync or anything. Poop.
