I'm so frustrated on how cumbersome this has become over the past few years. iTunes & iPhone used to sync perfectly the way I wanted it every single time. Make changes & reconnect & resync & bam everything is the way I wanted it changed.


1. Album art for about 40% of my newer purchases are gone.

2. Playlists are not in the sequence I requested such as by "added date". iOS8 gives me a random non-sensical order to play my music in.

3. It pushes iCloud music in front of my suggested order I want to play music in.

4. Worst of all, iTunes is no longer a safe haven if you accidentally deleted music off your iphone. It used to be if you deleted music off your phone you just resync & there it was back on your phone because your iTunes library was your backup. Now I delete music off my phone & when I resync it deletes if from my iTunes. This doesn't make sense. :Not-Amused:
