    Default ios 7 Devices Not Syncing in iTunes 11.1

    I have recently updated my iTunes to 11.1 and I have also download and installed through the device on my iPhone 4s and iPad 2. But when I plug in my devices to my Windows 8 computer, iTunes does not see or load them to sync. When I go into my computer I am able to see the device and view the pictures that are on it. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling iTunes, but still not luck. Does anybody have a fix for me? Thanks.

    hahahah!!!! Got it wow what a pain..

    in your device manager, under the USb section there should be an Apple Mobile Device USB Driver. if its NOT there (im guessing it isnt)

    Check Portable Devices > right click the Apple Iphone > Update drivers

    browse to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\Drivers and click ok > next

    it should find it and install... restart iTunes... poof!!


    (Verify that the Apple Mobile Device USB Driver is installed)

    Wow!!

    I have been unable to sync since I installed OS 7 on my iPhone 5 and upgraded iTunes to 11.1 a week ago.

    The suggested fix worked perfectly. I can finally sync my phone.

    Thank you!!

    with this in the Apple Support Communities, after the iTunes 11.1.4 for Windows update.

    My parents had this problem with both their iPhone 5 iOS 7 devides on both their Windows 8 64-bit computers; just needed to update their USBAAPL64 drivers, as stated within the tech support article.
