iPhone Sync to iTunes over Wi-Fi

If connecting your iPhone to your Mac via a cable feels like a strait jacket, you can now break free by setting up a sync through your Wi-Fi connection. That’s right, no more looking for cables. If only we could charge this way as well…hey Apple, what are you waiting for?

There is a downside to this freedom; the speeds won’t be as fast as when connected with a cable. But if you value convenience over speed, let’s get to the steps you’ll need to setup wireless iPhone sync with Mac.

  1. Unfortunately you’ll need your USB cable to set up Wi-Fi syncing for the first time.
  2. Connect your iPhone to your Mac via your cable.
  3. Launch iTunes and click on the iPhone icon.
  4. Click on the Summary tab.
  5. Under Options check the Sync with this iPhone over Wi-Fi box and click Apply.
  6. Now you can remove the cable. Freedom is at hand!
Sync Mac with iPhone over WiFi

That’s it. Now, in future, when your iPhone connects to the same Wi-Fi connection it will be available for syncing in iTunes.

Now go ahead and throw that iPhone cable in the trash!*

*Don’t do that. That’s a terrible idea.

The easiest way to get music on your iDevice:

Order a playlist from our site. The instant the order is completed, you are presented a link to start the download. If you miss that, not a problem, you are instantly sent an email with the link to download, as well.

Once your file is downloaded, using your computer, you will see The Playlist-I-Just-Ordered-bpm.zip file in your Downloads folder (Note the Zip at the end). You will need to extract that file. Usually during the Extraction process (Right click, Extract All, etc.), the file is extracted to your Downloads folder, also, where your downloaded files are. Once the file is extracted.

Open iTunes, create a play list, called, in this case The Playlist-I-Just-Ordered-bpm. Make sure you can see iTunes and your Downloads folder at the same time. Then put your mouse over the The Playlist-I-Just-Ordered-bpm folder, not the Zip file. Left click, hold the button down, then drag that folder over to your newly created Playlist on iTunes, let go of the left button. All the songs should start populating your playlist.

Now that you have your new playlsit in your iTunes, it is time to get it on your iDevice:

Sync your content using Wi-Fi

  2. Click Summary on the left side of the iTunes window.
  3. Select “Sync with this [device] over Wi-Fi.”
  4. Click Apply.
