    iCloud question ?
    since i upgraded to iOS 5, my iTunes always shows my iPad as connected in the devices tab... whether my iPad is connected or not

    However my iPhone doesn't show and I have to connect it to my iMac in order it shows in iTunes..

    I'm confused why one is perm connected the other not so.

    Is this right, I like the idea that its connected all the time, and I'd like my iPhone to be connected permanently too

    thanks

    this might be a dumb request, but, have you tried ejecting the iPad and then shutting iTunes down and reversing the sequence....stop WiFi sync then re-enable, iPhone first, etc..

    when i look at my 'iTunes wifi sync' options on my iPhone, it states I can auto sync with iTunes when the phone is plugged in and connected to wifi. The phone won't let me sync if its not plugged in

    however the iPad 'wifi sync states the same statement, that it will automatically sync when plugged into power and within a wifi area... yet when the iPad ISN'T plugged in the sync option is still available, and the iPad shows in iTunes ?

    hang on..... i've just noticed a setting 'sync with this phone over wifi' in the iTunes summary page,

    I have a feeling this was the setting i missed, as they now both show in iTunes without being connected... I think for the first time I've actually fixed this issue myself...

    thanks as always though, you guys out there are just a wealth of knowledge and experience, and it's great to be able to have access to that when I'm stuck

    thanks again

    have you turned on the sync wirelessly in iTunes in addition to your iPhone?

    EDIT: and are you using the latest iTunes 10?
