If you are still having problems it’s worth trying a different USB port, a different UBS cable, and failing that, another computer.
Especially if you have signed up for any of the services that run alongside it, such as Apple Music and i Tunes Match.
Of course, there is still more to i Tunes than music - you can also store movies and TV series there, used to keep a back up of your Apps too.
That way you can identify the content that is causing the issue and delete and re-download it if necessary.
For more advice on this issue we have this article: How to make i Tunes recognise an i Pod, i Phone or i Pad.
The latest version of i Tunes now comes installed with mac OS Mojave.
Upgrade today to get your favorite music, movies, TV shows, and podcasts.
i Tunes has been around since January 2001, before even the i Pod launched.
The software used to be fundamental when it came to syncing music with that device, and later on, syncing and updating the i Phone, but now-a-days i Tunes is of less importance as many i Phone and i Pad users choose to sync their music via the cloud.
One reason why your i Phone or i Pad might not sync via i Tunes is if you use i Cloud or other services like Apple Music to keep your content up to date across all of your devices - in that case syncing through i Tunes might be disabled.
Beware: if a track is on your i Phone but not in the music library on your Mac you will lose it when you sync your i Phone with i Tunes unless you use a service like i Tunes Match.
The process says it is complete, although everytime I attempt to access itunes, it says that the program has not been installed properly.
