Prevent your ipod or iphone from syncing automatically when plugged in

October 11, 2010 Leave a comment

It has always annoyed me when I plug in my iphone and open itunes that it automatically starts syncing, and once it has started it is a mammoth effort to stop it. I like to change settings before syncing it, so I usually have to wait for it to work itself out, then change the settings and sync it again.

Well, while playing with the settings in itunes I found the life saving tick box of the century (for this situation anyway)! Below are the steps to stop your apple device from automatically syncing when you plug it in!

Mac

– Select the “itunes” menu and select “preferences”

– Click on the “devices” tab

– Tick “prevent ipods, iphones, and ipads from syncing automatically”

– Select “ok” and your done!

PC

– Select the “edit” menu and select “preferences”

– Select the “devices” tab

– Tick “prevent ipods, iphones, and ipads from syncing automatically”

– Select “ok” and your done!

So there you have it ….. it is possible!

Thanks for reading 🙂
