iTune's menu item Preferences... produces a popup with a row of icons along the top including Devices.

A click on this icon produces a list of recent backups, below that two check boxes and below that (on my iMac) the statement:

 

iTunes is not paired with any Remotes

 

I don't understand this sentence. Neither paired nor Remotes.

 

I click the ? icon at bottom.

 

A Help Center page opens entitled iTunes Devices preferences.

What follows is a list of various Preference and Explanation pairs.

 

The last pair is:

 

Forget All Remotes <--> Click to disconnect every iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad paired with this iTunes library via the Remote app.

 

Is this circular logic for a Help page or what?

 

I type various Search terms in the box:

 

device pairing

pairing

pairing devices

 

There are various mentions of sharing, but I find nothing about pairing..

 

Can anyone enlighten me?

 

Many thanks in advance!
