I gave up goggling this as there so many different recommendations for different things so maybe someone experienced may be able to help: Phone: iphone 6 on IOS 8.0.2 Macbook Pro running latest mavericks, everything up to date. no firewall software The phone and the mac is on the same router using the same mhz. The phone can see the computer when I open iTunes and I can push to sync. The computer does not see the phone unless I manually push sync on the phone. The computer does see my iPad just fine. So my phone won't automatically sync by opening up iTunes. Does anyone have a solution?
