    I'm finding my iPhone shows up in the sidebar, and it says I'm syncing when I press the sync button, but nothing actuall gets transferred to the phone. Music, books, photos Can't figure that one out

    It may be similar to recent versions of iTunes where you had to first copy your tones to your iCloud Drive (in a folder called Tones or your choice), then drag them from there onto your phone in iTunes, or now to your phone in Finder. (Non-iBook Store purchased books required a similar procedure with the iBooks app.)

    EDIT: I'm not sure if using iCloud Drive was actually a requirement for tones, but it was for books.
