I have updated my iPhone 5s to iOS 7. I can sync my apps fine except the music files. And I only got information from iTunes saying “Waiting for changes to be applied”, and then the result comes with cancelling sync. I have tried again and again to re-sync and un-sync but it doesn’t help. Anybody can help me to solve the problem of music not syncing after iOS 7 update?
