This is not about the IOS 7, this is OS, both 6.1.3 & 7 of mine have the same issue. APPLE what the heck are u guys doing.... i need to sync my devices for class...%$#$%^&*(

I was able to get it back but not sure how long it will continue to work considering I'm not sure what caused the problem.
I deleted Itunes and removed the icon from my dock.
I deleted the (lockdown) by going to the finder and Go to Folder and type /var/db/lockdown
I deleted all the ITune Storage locations under Library_ ITunes
Emptied the trash
And my Iphone reappeared and sync...
I thought with each version things were suppose to improve. But what should I expect from developer who give me a option to find duplicate contacts and ask me if I want to merge them without providing a way to view them first. Was it that difficult and expensive to give me a simple display file. smh....
Hope this helps someone.

Same problem as you and i don't have IOS7. Something happens during reboot of macbook that makes it fail again. Perhaps a third party program that is installed? Do you have LittleSnitch, an antivirus or a virtual Windows partition on your Mac?

Perhaps during reboot .... Is where smthg is amiss. I have little snitch, but it is not been running for quite a bit.
3rd party.... Yeah I did install 'Disk aid' before installing the fresh iTunes. The disk aid had its own issue, so it ddnt work either.
Other than that, I dnt have any partition or antivirus. Maybe should try removing the 'disk aid'.

Diskaid is giving me the following error :
Your device is locked with a passcode.
Unlock it and click OK.
I don't have a password on my iphone. If I install Itunes again, diskaid works till I reboot

That is the exact error message which I get on my diskaid. I initially thought it was askin me to unlock the keylock, which I did, still there was no change.....still got the same error.
I am going try again, with a fresh install of iTunes.......

Well maybe I'm cynical, but the free upgrade for iCloud runs out tomorrow, and if it's impossible to back up locally it makes it a tough decision not to buy the storage on the iCloud, and therefore not have a back up.

True. If u can't do it locally, then it's either purchase of the cloud or nothing at all. However I on the other hand have a clone of my OS, which predates the 10.8.5.
I am going to run that older version and if it's all fine, then will ditch 10.8.5.

1. repair permissions
2. reinstall iTunes
This worked excellent

There are other solutions for this problem. But these are not definitif.
1. Sign in as guest user
2. restart your mac in safe modus. Push shift while starting up.

Did not help for me. I uninstalled Itunes, remove Applemobiledevice from library/system/extesions and did a repair permissions; rebooted, install Itunes again : sync is working till next mac reboot, then same failure

Just re download itunes and re install (without deleting old itunes or anything else). Worked fine for me
Currently Being ModeratedOct 6, 2013 8:33 PM (in response to rodeman)
The problem is, no matter whether you do a reinstall to get it working, or you fix your permission neither solution is permanent. It reverts back to the same state on the next reboot. I can't believe Apple has let this problem exist this long without so much as a comment acknowledging the issue.
