A bit perplexed.  Running OS X 10.8.2 with iTunes 11.0.1 on a Mac Pro and can no longer sync with our iPads (2x2nd Gen, 3rd Gen, mini) at all - not via USB cables (old 30-pin or new Lightning) or WiFi.

 

Connecting the mini via USB to a MacBook Pro with iTunes 10.7 ... no problems!

 

So issue seems to be (again) the new iTunes 11 ...

 

I can build & run code via Xcode on the same iPad with no issues.

 

So project for tomorrow - back up and then try to load iTunes 10.7 again ):

    [3] Different USB ports: one on the front of the Mac Pro, other via Apple display (rear Mac Pro port)

    [4] None show up via WiFi either

    [5] Works okay with Xcode via USB

    Ahh, now that I started whinging about it, I've started thinking more rather than just being frustrated.

     

    I remember having to update Xcode & the iOS SDK recently because I updated the iPad mini to iOS 6.1 ... before that the iPads were seen in iTunes but I don't recall seeing them since.

     

    Connected the one iPad that is left offline and so is still only on iOS 6.0.1 ... connected via USB and it appeared in iTunes!  In addition, the iOS 6.1 iPads also suddenly appeared via WiFi!  Although the mother-in-law's iPad still on iOS 6.0.1 is still missing via WiFi, but no matter.

     

    So something related to the iPad mini being updated to iOS 6.1 in addition to iTunes 11.0.1 ... ?!

     

    Anyway, all the iPads are now showing up in Devices in iTunes since I connected the old iPad ... strange.
