Useful tips for syncing with iTunes
- How to set up wireless iTunes syncing:
Connect iPad to your computer using the Dock Connector to USB Cable. In iTunes, turn on “Sync over Wi-Fi connection” in the device’s Summary pane. When Wi-Fi syncing is turned on, iPad automatically syncs every day. iPad must be connected to a power source, both iPad and your computer must be on the same wireless network, and iTunes must be open on the computer.
- Purchases you make from the iTunes Store or the App Store on iPad are synced back to your iTunes library. You can also purchase or download content and apps from the iTunes Store on your computer, and then sync them to iPad.
- In the device’s Summary pane, you can set iTunes to automatically sync iPad when it’s attached to your computer. To temporarily override this, hold down Command and Option (Mac) or Shift and Control (PC) until you see your iPad appear in the sidebar.
- In case your source video files are incompatible with the new iPad, you can use iPad 3 Video Converter to do format transcoding.
- If you’re using iCloud to store your contacts, calendars, bookmarks, and notes, don’t also sync them to iPad using iTunes.
- To enjoy Blu-ray and traditional DVD movies, you also need to convert them to iPad viewable formats before sync.
