One of the main new features in iOS 5 was wireless syncing. Many people were excited by the prospect of having no cables to sync with their computer. Today, I’ll tell you how you can enable and use Wireless Syncing for your iOS device.
What you need:
- An iPhone, iPod or iPad running iOS 5 or higher
- An computer with an active Wi-Fi connection
Before getting started, make sure that you have synced your iOS device to your computer via the cable once. Also check that you have enabled the “Sync with this iPhone over Wi-Fi”. You can enable this by selecting this option in your device’s general tab.
To wireless sync your iOS device, follow the steps below:
- Make sure your computer and iOS device are connected on the same Wi-Fi network.
- Your device needs to be plugged in to initiate Wi-Fi Sync, so make sure you connect it to a power source via dock or power adapter.
- Open the Settings app on your iOS 5 devices homescreen.
- Navigate to General>iTunes Wi-Fi Sync

Congratulations! If you’ve done everything correctly, your device should sync wirelessly with your computer, and will now do so automatically whenever you have your device plugged in and connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your computer.
Now, your iOS device will automatically sync your device when it is on charge and the computer is on and iTunes is running.
