Device not syncing (Iphone)

Device not syncing (Iphone)



I have had this problem for months now.  My iphone device does not show up on Mac.  I  have followed Spotify help advice and proceedures with out resolution.  Includng checking the UPnp.  I have removed and resynced, reset, reloaded.  Offline has been denied several times.  This is turning into an embarrassing situation for Spotify, as I see similar reports and no response from Spotify.  Extraordinary.  It will become unviable for me to carry on with this service unless i am able to manage iphone device on my computor/main spotify page. 


All advice and feedback would be appreciated. 


Thank you very much.
