When I open the summary tab, I don't see the sync over wi-fi option in the list that is meant to be there. Any ideas on where I can find it and what I should do?


iPhone 5, iOS 6.0.2

    There really aren't much options. It just shows these under he heading iPhone 5:

    check for updates

    restore iPhone

    Then it shows these under the heading Backup:

    Automatically back up

    iCloud

    Back up now

    Restore backup

    Etc. nothing else really.

    Oh yeah, it also shows the sync option any the bottom right of my screen, right beside he storage info for my iPhone.

    But all it says is "sync" it doesn't say sync over wifi or anything, it just says "sync".

    On the Summary page, do you not have an entire section labeled "Options" containing the following choices????

     

    Sync with this phone over WiFI

    Sync only checked items

    Prefer standard definintion videos

    Convert higher bit rate songs to ,,,,

    Manually manage music and videos

    Reset Warnings

    Configure Univeral Access

    No, it doesn't show those options any longer. It showed it the very first time I plugged my iPhone to my laptop, but never showed it again. I think when I first plugged it, I chose the option of "sync with USB" and not "sync with wifi"

    Uninstall iTunes and re-install it using a freshly downloaded copy.

    I just tried doing that now, and it still doesn't work. I still can't see the options. In fact, nothing changed I got my iTunes back, like I never deleted it at all.

    I tried re-installing it again, (for the second time) after it mysteriously dissapeared off my desktop, and the wi-fi sync works perfectly now. Thanks.
