Fix for iPhone Update 2.2.1: iTunes Sync Problems

A fix from Apple has materialized, and can be executed as follows.

We previously reported on a problem with iTunes Syncing after the iPhone OS 2.2.1 update. Now, a fix from Apple has materialized, and can be executed as follows:

Launch iTunes

Select "Deauthorize Computer" from the Store menu

Enter your iTunes Store Account ID and Password, then clicking on the Deauthorize button.

Select "Authorize Computer" from the Store menu

Enter your iTunes Store Account ID and Password, then click on the Authorize button.

Once this is completed you should be able to sync content again with your iPhone or iPod Touch. However, for some users, syncing content did not work again until after their next purchase from the iTunes Store.
