Not sure if this is an iPhone or iTunes question, but here goes...

I use iTunes very seldom and know little about it.

A couple of weeks ago, at a meeting, a friend plugged his iPhone into my MB Air to charge it, as there was no power available at the place we were meeting. No problem with that, obviously it charged fine.

But, somehow his phone got (captured?) by my system, and when he tried to install a new app yesterday, it brought up my Apple ID. I certainly did nothing that day to the Air while the phone was plugged in, and since he is a unenlightened windows person, I am pretty sure he didn't either.

How do we get his phone unhooked from my ID? He doesn't use iTunes and I doubt he has anything it would run on anyway.

Anybody?

Something else was done - there is no way just plugging it in to charge would cause any change to the Apple ID being used on the device.

Just put in his own Apple ID when it asks.

On his phone, go to Settings - iTunes & App Sore and what ID is listed there?

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

The only way this would of happened, is when its plugged in, it brings up a **Warning** asking to you trust the device that was plugged in. If you press Yes, then it could then associate the iPhone to the Apple ID in iTunes, but unless you put in the password, nothing will happen.
This happens all the time when one of the kids plug their phone not my MBP, but I just don't click Yes.
Its a Smart Phone, so its just Pre-empting you wanting to sync with your MBA is all. . .

As bobtomay posted above, get him to check under Settings, iCloud, App Store and his ID should still be there.

Some more info. Apparently it was a freshly reloaded phone without ever being attached to any PC and with no Apple ID ever entered. His is a 4 but I have an old 3gs that I am playing with. I am going to erase it and see what happens when it first sees my Air.

One factor is that mine was set to start up iTunes automatically when it sees an iPhone. Didn't know that, but I have never plugged a phone in to the Air or used iTunes on it. Fixed that auto connect problem.

No big deal. We got an expert (18 year old kid) to fix the problem phone, but I am still curious as to how it happened.
