At least I could manually click the update in the devices app page to change it to Will Update and then it would sync over from itunes to the device, but on the latest itunes this broke again. Currently 11.1.3 here.
I also had another problem where itunes synced crap onto the device in the OTHER category. I had to erase and reset the device to get rid of it. Hours of time wasted.
