iTunes To Finally Get Wireless Syncing With iOS 5by Christina Warren, feeds.mashable.com
June 6th 2011
At the WWDC keynote on Monday, Apple announced that users can now sync and backup their iOS devices wirelessly.
Apple has been promising some sort of wireless PC-free syncing solution for quite some time, but the company has now officially confirmed that the new feature will be introduced with iOS 5.
In iOS 5, the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch will automatically find iTunes on a Wi-Fi network and automatically sync and backup apps, contacts and media. This is similar to what Google does with its Android OS, with the exception, of course, that Apple still has an actual program that users can use to monitor backups and programs.
Apple also announced that users who want to be completely PC free can perform cloud backups to the new iCloud service.
