Re-Enable Wi-Fi Syncing With iOS 7.1

Hey,

A while ago I showed you some secret tricks in enabling wi-fi syncing on your iPad, iPhone or other iOS device. With the latest version of iOS 7.1 the wi-fi sync capability, which is a major feature and incredibly, useful won’t work. The solution however is very simple and I will admit that it took me longer that it should have to work it out. To re-enable wi-fi syncing you have to set your iOS device as a trusted device.

Trusting Your iPhone

To get wi-fi syncing enabled again iTunes has to trust your device. Dig out the connecting cable and plug your iPhone or iPad in. When iTunes is open your iOS device will ask you to trust the device.

Plug in your device and trust it.

Plug in your device and trust it.

Within iTunes press the continue button on the dialog box that appears. After a second or two your device will be trusted.

iTunes will ask if you trust your own device.

iTunes will ask if you trust your own device.

Once this is complete a normal sync will happen. When you unplug your device and have both your Mac and your iOS device on the same network you will be able to wi-fi sync again.

This update is certainly a security feature, although it isn’t too obvious that you have to do this to get wi-fi syncing back.
