Fix for problems with iPhone syncing under Mac OS X 10.5.2

Fix for problems with iPhone syncing under Mac OS X 10.5.2

A number of users are reporting problems with synchronizing their iPhones after applying the recently release Mac OS X 10.5.2 update. Issues include iTunes not recognizing the iPhone, error messages during sync, or incomplete syncs.

The fix in most cases? Reinstall iTunes 7.6. Simply download the package, run the installer and restart.

Failing that, try deleting the following files:

  • /System/Library/Extensions/AppleMobileDevice.kext
  • /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/DeviceLink.framework
  • /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/MobileDevice.framework
  • /Library/Receipts/AppleMobileDeviceSupport.pkg

then reinstall iTunes 7.6.

There are several other workarounds for sync issues, including connecting the iPhone directly to a computer's USB port rather than through a USB hub; switching USB ports if you're having problems with one and more. See this article for more.
