See, the thing is - I use sync across multiple Apple devices. I have had zero problems with duplicated or missing entries, and it's one of the absolute killer features of the ecosystem for me.

It's hard to get a real impression of what problems may or may not exist, unfortunately.




It works great - until it doesn't, and then you find all your music is deleted or something [0]

They don't exactly have a stellar record on this sort of thing.

0 - http://9to5mac.com/2016/05/13/apple-officially-acknowledges-...


One random user? Which they officially acknowledged even?

This might be a less than a stellar record, but not because of that link.


That was just the first link from a Google search.

Internet forums are full of other users complaining of the same problem.

Even if it only affects 0.1% of users, multiply that by the tens of millions, and that's a large number of people having a horrible experience.

It works great for you, until you're in the 0.1% then it's a bitch.

Edit: and it's not just music, it's a mulit-year history of botching up sync across multiple different technologies - some of which I've experienced first hand, some of which I've had friends complain of. Either way, Apple have zero credibility with me and syncing.

Still nothing for the remaining 99.9% of them.


Schadenfreude is not a problem solving strategy.


10-12 years ago (wow...), stories like that were a lot more common. I lost thousands of MP3s to iTunes on my first Mac, a PowerBook 17.


Happened to me and many people I know. It's a very widespread issue.
