iPad 2 iOS 5 Wi-Fi Sync

One great feature in the iOS 5 that will help you be more wireless in your life is the new Wi-Fi sync capability. This feature will let you update your photos, musics, apps, movies, videos and other libraries on your iPhone 4S, iPad 2, and your PC so that they are all synced to reflect any changes you make on either of the devices. This is great feature. This will relieve you of the tension of connecting your iPad or iPhone 4 and 4S also for that matter, to your PC using the sync or charge cable and copy everything manually to update your files.

For this however, you will have enable the feature on iTunes as well. And whenever you connect your iPad, or your iPhone 4 or 4S, to a power outlet, the device will connect to your Wi-Fi network and sync everything by it self, so that you dont have the tension of syncing everything. You can also, however, do it manually by going to Setting, then the General tab, then iTunes Wi-Fi Sync, and tapping the Sync Now button. To enable all this, you will have to follow the steps given below:

    • Connect your iPad to your PC via USB / sync cable.
    • In the Devices section in the left-hand pane of the iTunes window, click on your iPad’s name and you’ll see it highlighted in blue
    • Then in the main window of iTunes scroll down just a bit so you can see the Options section
    • You should see that the second checkbox under Options is ‘Sync with this iPad over Wi-Fi’ – click on that to make it checked / selected.
Once you are done with this, you can give it a try by connecting your iPad 2 running iOS 5 to a power outlet. The iPad 2 has to automatically sync everything from your PC’s iTunes library. Enjoy being wireless.
