How to enable iTunes Wi-Fi Sync in iTunes
Before you just go syncing willy-nilly, you must first enable Wi-Fi sync in iTunes on your computer. Before you start, make sure you have the latest version of iTunes.
- Plug your iPhone or iPad into your computer via USB. Yes, to sync wirelessly, you’ll need a wired connection to start.
- Launch iTunes on your computer if it doesn’t launch right away.
- Click the iPhone or iPad button near the top of the screen. If you’re on PC, you might have to click the name of your iPhone or iPad in the menu on the left.
Under Options, click the checkbox next to Sync with this (iPhone or iPad) over Wi-Fi.
Safely eject your iPhone by clicking the eject button (looks like a triangle with a line under it) near the top left of the window.
Now you’re set up to sync via Wi-Fi. The only thing left to do is enable things on your iPhone or iPad.
Tips to Sync iPhone Over Wi-Fi
Syncing an iPhone wirelessly is slower than doing it with USB. If you have a ton of content to sync, use the traditional wired method.
You don't have to remember to sync manually. When an iPhone is connected to a power source and is on the same Wi-Fi network as the computer, the phone syncs automatically.
Using Wi-Fi sync, you can sync a phone or iPod Touch to more than one computer, as long as those computers are authorized with the same Apple ID.
You can't change the sync settings on an iPhone or iPod Touch. That can only be done in iTunes.
Use Office apps on your Surface and iPhone
If you need to edit Office documents on your iPhone, stay productive with Office apps. You’ll be able to create, edit, and share documents directly from your iPhone and continue working on your Surface.
Edit your Office documents on your iPhone and Surface
When you save your documents to OneDrive, you’ll see them on both your Surface and iPhone.
Search for Microsoft Office in the Apple App Store.
Select Install next to the following apps:
Open an app to begin editing documents you saved on OneDrive.
Changes will be saved across devices so you can start work on your iPhone and continue on your Surface.
See your email accounts and calendars in one place with Microsoft Outlook
Stay organized when you use Microsoft Outlook on your iPhone. Get a familiar mail experience when you download Microsoft Outlook from the Apple App Store. Set up Microsoft Outlook so you can:
Get all your important email in a focused inbox.
Search contacts and attachments from all your email accounts
See your calendar appointments and reminders across all your accounts with different views
Fix iTunes Wi-Fi Sync Not Working on Win/Mac
Resolving the WiFi sync issue on Windows and Mac OS X just involves you killing the Apple Mobile Device Helper process. Take the following steps to do this for Mac and Windows.
Step 1. Press Ctrl + Alt + Delete key at the same time and then open the Task Manager. Then click the Services tab.
Step 2. Locate “Apple Mobile Device Service” or “AppleMobileDeviceHelper.exe”, depending on the windows version you are using.
Step 3. Right click the process and choose Restart, or you can choose “End Process”.
Step 4. Relaunch iTunes and you should be able to see the iOS device via WiFi.
For Mac OS X
Step 1. Launch the Activity Monitor. You can find it in /Application/Utilities/
Step 2. Search for “AppleMobileDeviceHelper” in the search box.
Step 3. Select the process and click the “x” button.
Step 4. Confirm the process by tapping on Quit.
Step 5. Exit the activity monitor and relaunch iTunes.
You should note that your goal is to end the process and not to disable it permanently. If you disable it, you won’t be able to see your iPhone.
Regardless of what OS you use, if you follow the process above, your iPhone should show up in the device list of your iTunes sidebar or title bar if the sidebar is hidden. Once your iPhone shows up on your iTunes, you are good to go.
How to Remove Wi-Fi Networks from Your Mac and iOS Device
If you travel regularly with your Mac or iOS device, you likely find yourself connecting to new Wi-Fi networks: at airports, in train stations, in hotels, restaurants, pubs, or at clients’ offices. Whether you connect to these networks with your Mac, iPhone, or iPad, miraculously, your devices will remember these networks and sync them via iCloud — so your other Apple products can access them too, if you use iCloud Keychain.
Your Apple device’s ability to remember previously connected to networks can be both good and bad. While it means you don’t have to search for or remember login credentials when you connect to a known Wi-Fi network on a different device, it can lead to a surfeit of Wi-Fi networks stored in your keychain and potentially allow you to unknowingly connect to a Wi-Fi network that might not be secure. You can cull these Wi-Fi networks, but you can only really clean them out on a Mac.
In this article, I’ll show you how to remove these Wi-Fi networks so your Macs and iOS devices forget them.
How to Remove Wi-Fi Networks from iPhone or iPad
You can remove wi-fi networks on an iPhone or an iPad, but only if you are near enough to those networks for your device to detect them. If you go to Settings > Wi-Fi, you’ll see some available wi-fi networks. Tap the i button next to a network that you have previously joined, then tap Forget this Network. The device will remove that network.
If you want to remove all saved wi-fi networks on your iOS device, there is a nuclear option. If you tap Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings, the iOS device deletes all your Wi-Fi networks and passwords, along with other network settings. However, this does not carry over to iCloud Keychain if you are using it, and the only way to fully delete these saved networks is on a Mac.
How to View and Remove Saved Wi-Fi Networks via Network Preferences
There are two ways you can view (and remove) saved Wi-Fi networks on a Mac. The first way is in the Mac’s Network preferences.
To do this, open System Preferences, and then click Network. Select Wi-Fi in the sidebar, and then click Advanced. In the Wi-Fi tab, you will see a list of networks.
This list is mainly there so you can choose an order of preference for joining networks. You can drag the networks in the list so the preferred networks are at the top, but you can also delete networks by selecting it and then clicking the ‘—‘ (minus) button.
When you do this, your iCloud Keychain will update, and they will be eventually removed from all your devices that sync to the same iCloud account.
In some cases, you may not be able to remove Wi-Fi networks from the Network preferences, but you will be able to delete them from Keychain Access (see below for the second method to remove Wi-Fi networks).
From the image above, note the checkbox in the pane that lets you "Remember networks this computer has joined." If you don’t want a Wi-Fi network to be saved to your Mac, and subsequently to iCloud Keychain, uncheck this setting.
How to View and Remove Saved Wi-Fi Networks via Keychain Access
The second way to remove saved networks is via Keychain Access. This app is located in the Utilities folder in your Applications folder, and it stores passwords, certificates, encryption/decryption keys, secure notes and more. One of the items it stores as "passwords" is the credentials you use to log into Wi-Fi networks; specifically, they are recorded as "AirPort network password."
To find these, click the search box at the top right of your Keychain Access window and type "AirPort." You’ll see a number of items, and the Kind column shows them as AirPort base station password, AirPort Disk password, and AirPort network password. (You may not have items in all three categories.) The latter are your Wi-Fi network credentials.
Interestingly, when I look at my AirPort network passwords, I see many of those that are in the Network preferences, but not all. And some show as being in the iCloud keychain, while others are in the System keychain, even though they sync to and from my other devices. (For example, some of the networks I see on my Mac are those that I only connected to with my iPhone.) To delete any of these networks, click them, then press Delete, and click Delete in the confirmation dialog.
Note that any changes you make on your Mac will take time to propagate to other Macs, and to iOS devices.
It’s a good idea to go through these networks from time to time. You may have connected to a network when you were traveling and not want to automatically connect to it again. Clearing out these networks will also prevent your Mac from automatically connecting to networks masquerading as legitimate, since the only identifying information for a Wi-Fi network is its SSID (or the name you see) and anyone can use the same network name, potentially leading you to connect to an insecure network.

Apple синхронизация по wifi

Setting up iCloud Keychain is extremely straightforward and easy.

Nobody likes having to type a password every time they need to sign in to a website or service. iCloud Keychain is Apple’s take on simplifying password management across the Mac, iPhone and iPad. It securely stores your user names, passwords, and credit and debit card details, then auto-fills fields when required. It can also generate strong passwords and sync Wi-Fi credentials.
If you’re deep into the Apple ecosystem, it might be a good idea to start using this handy feature. Before we dive in to use it, let’s have a look at all the features of iCloud Keychain.
Key features of iCloud Keychain
iCloud Keychain lets you store website login credentials such as user name and password. You can also add a credit and debit cards if you want. These details get stored securely, then synced across all your Apple devices with iCloud Keychain enabled.
The service also stores the passwords of Wi-Fi networks you’ve connected to and syncs them across devices. So, if you’ve connected your Mac to a password-protected Wi-Fi network, your iPhone should be able to connect to it automatically without requiring you to enter the password again.
iCloud Keychain also stores other personal information such as account settings for Calendar, Contacts, Mail, etc. It syncs account details for social accounts such as Facebook, Twitter and Flickr. (Unfortunately, Apple axed social accounts integration in iOS 11.)
To help boost security, iCloud Keychain also features a random password generator for creating strong and unique passwords. It stores them safely so you can auto-fill them later in Safari.
How to set up iCloud Keychain on iOS and Mac
Enabling iCloud Keychain is just a flip away!

Setting up iCloud Keychain is fairly easy. To get started, open your iPhone or iPad’s Settings app, then tap on your Apple ID. Navigate to iCloud > Keychain and toggle on iCloud Keychain. Enter your Apple ID password to proceed.
If this is the first time you’re setting up iCloud Keychain, you’ll need to create an iCloud security code. If you’ve set it up previously, enter that code here. Alternatively, you can also verify using two-factor authentication. iCloud Keychain should now be enabled on your iPhone or iPad. Enable iCloud Keychain on your Mac.

To enable iCloud Keychain on your Mac, head to System Preferences > iCloud and enable iCloud Keychain. Enter your Apple ID to proceed. Now, you can either enter the security code you created earlier or request approval from your iPhone. If you choose “Request approval,” you should receive a prompt on your iPhone asking whether to allow your Mac to use iCloud. Once you allow it, iCloud Keychain should be enabled on your Mac.
Now that the setup is complete, Safari should offer to save passwords, payment methods and other info, and then seamlessly sync it all across your Mac, iPhone and iPad.
How to view and manage saved passwords
Want to view or manage your saved iCloud Keychain passwords? That’s easy, too. On an iPhone or iPad running iOS 10 or below, launch Settings > Safari > Passwords. Authenticate your device using Touch ID or your device’s passcode. You should be able to see all the saved passwords. All your saved passwords show up here.

It’s slightly different if you want to manage iCloud Keychain passwords on an iPhone or iPad running iOS 11, which is currently available in beta prior to its launch this fall.
First, launch Settings > Accounts & Passwords > App and Website Passwords. Authenticate your device using Touch ID or your passcode. Here, you should be able to see all the saved passwords. Swipe left to delete a saved password.

You can swipe left on an individual listing and tap on Delete to remove the saved password. You can also tap on Edit in the top right corner to remove multiple saved passwords.
To add a new password manually, scroll all the way to the bottom. Then tap Add Password. Here, you can specify the website URL, the user name and the actual password. The only major gripe? You cannot generate random passwords when adding a password manually. View your saved passwords in Safari.

To view saved passwords on your Mac, navigate to Safari Settings > Passwords. Now, enter your Mac’s password. You should be able to see all the saved user names and passwords.
How to view and manage saved credit cards
You’ll see saved credit cards details in a list like this.

To view your saved credit cards, navigate to iPhone Settings > Safari > AutoFill > Saved Credit Cards. Here, you should be able to see all the saved credit card details.
To delete a saved credit card, just swipe left on it and tap on Delete. You can also tap on Edit in the top right corner to remove multiple credit cards.
To add a new credit card manually, tap on Add Credit Card and enter the cardholder’s name, card number, expiration date and an optional description. A handy Use Camera function lets you capture card information using your iPhone’s camera.
How to disable iCloud Keychain
If you’d like to stop Safari from saving these credentials, navigate to Settings > Safari > AutoFill and disable Names and Passwords and Saved Credit Cards.
You can choose to keep or delete existing passwords when disabling iCloud Keychain.

If, for some reason, you’d like to disable iCloud Keychain altogether, navigate to iPhone Settings > Apple ID > Keychain and disable iCloud Keychain. Upon disabling, you’ll get the option to keep or delete previously saved passwords and credit cards.
Pro tip: Use Password Autofill for apps in iOS 11
In iOS 11, you can use saved passwords in Safari inside other apps, too. For instance, say you saved your Twitter password in Safari. Now, iOS autofills that password so you can sign in to Twitter’s app automatically.
To do so, simply navigate to the password field inside any app. You should see a key icon on the keyboard. Tapping on it will require you to authenticate using Touch ID or your device passcode. Once authenticated, you should be able to see all the saved passwords, and you can tap on the relevant one to auto-fill it.
Set up and use iCloud Keychain easily
While there’s no denying that iCloud Keychain is amazing, it’s also pretty bare-bones. Unlike other password managers, there’s no way to organize your saved passwords. Also, you cannot save any information other than passwords and credit/debit cards. And, of course, it’s not cross-platform.
Still, Apple’s extension of Password Autofill out of the browser is a welcome change. We’d love to see Apple add more features to iCloud Keychain in the future.
