Tired of tethering to iTunes and wondering how to set up iTunes Wi-Fi sync? It works just like traditional USB sync but without the cable! (Without the sync cable that is, you still need to be plugged into a power cable -- baby steps!) Here's how to get it going:
That's it, now as long as iTunes is open on your PC, as soon as you plug your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad into the power outlet, it should appear in iTunes and sync over Wi-Fi.
(Yes -- It has to be plugged in to the power for this to work, so you are really just cutting the cord to the PC not to the wall!)
If you want to initiate a sync manually, you can do this from your iOS device and you don't need to be plugged into a power outlet.
That is all there is too it, you can now sync your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad without the cable. Well without a cable connected to your PC anyway!
