Fix for Unknown Error 13014, 13136 or 13213 While Syncing iPhone After Updating to iTunes 8.0.1

Apple had released iTunes 8.0.1 to improve stability and performance and also fixes a number of important bugs.

However, some users have reported persistent problems syncing their iPhones after updating to iTunes 8.0.1.

I had even suggested a workaround to fix this problem. If that hasn’t helped then checkout the fix recently posted by Apple on their Support page after the jump.

Some users have reported that they are getting one of the following error messages after upgrading to iTunes 8.0.1 and connecting iPhone:

  • "The iPhone "iPhone name" cannot be synced. An unknown error occurred (13014)." – As seen in the screen shot below.
  • "The iPhone "iPhone name" cannot be synced. An unknown error occurred (13136)."
  • "The iPhone "iPhone name" cannot be synced. An unknown error occurred (13213). "

Apple has posted three solutions that you can try out one at a time to resolve the sync issue:

  1. Quit and reopen iTunes. If the issue continues, then restart your computer.
  2. Turn off Genius in iTunes in the Genius sidebar (choose View > Hide Genius Sidebar).
  3. Quit iTunes, temporarily disable the anti-virus security software on your computer, then reopen iTunes and try to sync your device. If iTunes successfully syncs your iPhone or iPod touch, consult the anti-virus software vendor.
