I run iTunes on the Mac MBP (Snow Leopard). I have a folder of apps called New Folder. I click on it to open it, rename it, then close it. It shows the new name. But then after sync it changes back to New Folder.

I do wonder if it is some name conflict. The new name was sushi, and there are sushi apps. But what is weird is it does show up with the new name until I press sync.

EDIT 2/20/11: It isn't a name conflict; I have seen this at other times. Also it shows all the apps in alphabetical order, it appears.


You should just edit the folder name on the iPhone itself. Just tap and hold the folder until it wiggles then tap it again to open it, and tap the name to edit it. Unfortunately iTunes often has lots of unknown trouble syncing with iOS devices, much to my own dismay.

    Agree on the trouble iTunes has with syncing with iOS devices - just did a major cleanup in iTunes of my iPhone, just to have it revert to the mess it was in previously. Tried one more time, and then it worked...frustrating to say the least. – Lizzan Jan 31 '11 at 6:37

    @Lizzan Yeah iTunes honestly sucks with syncing. It keeps telling me that my iPhone has like 5GB free but when I try to sync 1 more 5MB song to it it tells me it needs like another 124MB. – SeniorShizzle Jan 31 '11 at 17:20
  • @Lizzan So given these troubles do you have any ideas on how to avoid those cases? – Brian Carlton Feb 1 '11 at 18:42

    @Brian Yeah, a fresh restore should do the trick... Don't restore from backup. – SeniorShizzle Feb 2 '11 at 6:42

    @Brian Sorry, for me it usually seems to work the second time around, but I haven't figured out why. – Lizzan Feb 2 '11 at 12:12
