I can't WiFi sync. I plugged my devices into my computer and turned on WiFi sync, then unplugged them from the computer, and into power, tried syncing and the Sync Now button is dimmed and it says Sync will resume when PC is available.

This is just one of many issues I got going on with my Apple products right now, so AAAANNNNYYY help is greatly appreciated.

Did you manually sync with the cable first after turning on the wifi sync? I did that and it is all working even without being plugged into the wall. Of course, I am assuming you kept iTunes open when attempting to sync over wifi.

The only benefit wifi sync really brings is the ability to not connect a cord to the PC or Mac to sync and backup to wifi. In other words, Your Mac has to turned on and iTunes has to be open in order to sync. You just don't have to plug the cord in.

a cable sync after checking of the wi-fi sync button in iTunes was what did it for me. i'm having no trouble now. try that if you haven't done it yet.

Any fix? I have the same problem. Have turned it on in iTunes and on my iPhone. I know the iPhone is connected to iTunes wireless, because I can use the Remote app between my iPhone and iTunes. But it keeps saying "Sync will resume when Macbook is available"
