    Thought this would be the best and safest option. Just trying to install my apps, songs, etc. It installs a few apps then hangs and won't continue. I have to unplug the phone and then replug and then it starts again. VERY annoying. Never had this before. Anybody else with this issue and know of a fix?

    I think this is an iOS 8 thing. I updated my mini and it hung for awhile downloading the new keyboards. I don't think it's your phone.

    Are you taking about downloading from the App Store or installing on your mini using iTunes?

    I finally got past this and the phone is set up. Not sure what the issue was. Rebooting phone, computer, repair permissions, nothing seemed to work. I did a total restore of the phone and the problem lessened significantly while doing initial install but still occurred. Frustrating. Seems to be doing okay now.

    I had the same problem it took about 7 hours to get my crap from iTunes to my phone. Multiple reboots etc would always hang on the 3rd or 4th app then did the same with music

    Did you ever find what you thought was an actual fix for this or just kept unplugging and re-plugging the device until it go through (i.e.; sheer brute force)?

    No just kept trying until it was complete switching on and off wireless sync etc and wired sync

    Sync my initial unpleasant restore, I have had no problems syncing all the updated apps that have come out. I wondered if there was an issue with apps that weren't ios8 compliant yet or something like that which was causing a problem with iTunes. Seems like a LOT of issues with ios8 and the 8.0.1 update debacle is adding fuel to the fire. Oh well, I'm sure they'll get this smoothed out, unfortunate to deal with the frustrations of being an early adopter which is why I usually steer clear of that in general
