Apple has enabled Wi-Fi Sync for Windows users in iOS 5 beta 4. Indeed a great news for those iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users that use a Windows computer as their primary machine. For Mac users, WiFi Sync has already been enabled since iOS 5 Beta 2.
In iOS 5 beta 4, wireless syncing is now available on Windows as well as the Mac (requires OS X 10.6.8 or Lion)You will see an option to enable wireless syncing when you connect your device to iTunes with the USB cable. It is recommended you perform your initial sync with a cable after restoring your device.
- Wireless syncing is triggered automatically when the device is connected to power and on the same network as the paired computer. Or, you can manually trigger a sync from iTunes or from Settings -> General -> iTunes Sync (same network as paired computer required).
- If you find issues with apps, media and/or photos synced to your device, you can reset then resync. From Settings -> General -> Reset, choose Erase all Content and Settings. Then reconnect to iTunes and sync again.
If you’ve already got the iOS 5 beta 4 running on your iPhone, ipad or iPod Touch and use Windows OS on your primary computer, let us know how the WiFi Sync feature works for you.
