    Anyone have a fix for this?

    Little background. I recently sent my iPhone 5 off for the Sleep/Wake button recall. Got it back a week later and it was obviously wiped. I restore from iCloud and a random 758 songs show up in my music. I haven't used iTunes Match in over a year so I'm not sure where these songs came from. I delete the entire music folder and do a wired sync with iTunes. Everything seems to transfer fine (about 45GB of music) and I was on my way. After using my device I notice a lot of my album artwork is missing and I have duplicates everywhere. Not sure what happened because I'm pretty anal about keeping my library nice and tidy. I decide it must of been a wonky sync and so I delete the music folder again and try to re-sync my library (this is now on iOS 8). Now every time I try to sync I get stuck on step 4 of 4, "Waiting For Changes to be Applied." I thought it might need a minute or two to work through my library so I let it run FOR 8 HOURS. Nothing. Still "Waiting..."

    I've done my research and see a lot of anecdotal remedies regarding voice memos, voicemails, etc. Nothing is working for me.

    Anyone have a legit fix?

    (I'm running iOS 8 on an iPhone 5 with the newest version of iTunes that was updated a few days ago on a Mac.)

    I'm having similar issues with my iPhone 6. Cant get it to sync my entire library of songs. Maybe my library os too big?? IDK I was so excited about not having to use iPods anymore. Now it won't work. My next step is to try restoring from backup. I hate doing that with a new phone but its worth a shot! I'll report back....In the mean time try this solution...
