    This may already been noted elsewhere,  but a reset of my iphone 4's network settings may have fixed my wifi sync issues. I had to do thet network settings reset for an unrelated problem. Then, when the iphone restarted (it had been plugged in already this whole time), the wifi sync began immediately. Just a thought that resetting network settings might help someone.

    Imho all the found solutions are 'workarounds' for a not solved issue. The Wi-Fi Sync of Apple iTunes is a buggy implementation. Maybe one of the here given solutions will work for you today, but I would not give you any insurance it is working tomorrow.

     

    Apple should do a very profound investigation in this subject. And it should improve their own website knowledge-base on this subject. The fact that they are given a very poor response to this subject may/should wonder everybody. Imho it is amazing the Apple-Uers are staying so Apple-friendly about a product that is not delivering what is should do.

     

    So I suggest to end this subject with the very old and wise words of Ceasar & Cato the elder

    - Alea jacta est ("The die has been cast")

    - Ceterum censeo Carthaginem esse delendam (Furthermore, (moreover) I consider that Carthage [(= Apple iTunes nowadays WiFi-Sync implementation] must be destroyed"

    Why does it work so well for so many of us?

    You are one of the happy few. Please note that I am a big Apple fan. But iTunes and Wi-Fi connections to Apple TV, iPhones, iPads, iPods (I own them all) are famous on their instable connection.

     

    It should not be necessary to reboot applications, computers, devices to get required connection. Don't give up, they have the ability to improve their own product!

    Seeing your "  If a man says he will fix it, he will. There is no need to remind him every 6 months about it." quote, I ask my self the following question:

    - Or you are not in a relation.

    - Or you are in a relation with a very patient person.

    In both cases you must be happy!

    Actually, the very large majority.

    I'm not sure on what basis you can say the majority. I originally posted on this thread and I have followed it ever since. In my very subjective analysis the majority of posts have been from unhappy users. How many gave up in despair of it ever being fixed? I did, and reluctantly switched to iCloud.

    I'm fed up with this!  I'm ready to ditch ALL my Apple products!  I have a MacBook Air, Airport Extreme, iPad 2 and Ipod Touch 5th Gen.  ..|.

     

    iOS 6 screwed all there devices.  Before iOS 6 my Ipad and Ipod touch worked flawlessly, syncing over wifi without any issues.  Apple is sticking the nose in the air and looking the other way.

     

    Apples "ignore it and it will go away" attitude again.  I'm not an Apple fanboy like many of you iSheep people on this forum.

    Apple produces its own hard and software but still both don't cooperate. Maybe I should buy a different  product?

    go to setting>general>about>name in iOS device

     

    remove (`s) from name eg. change Ram`s iPhone to Ram iPhone.sync via USB cable first,from second time it will start sync over wifi.good luck.

    It works! And it was not necessary to sync via USB cable!

    Just changed the name and then it became visible in the iTunes via wifi.

    Does it wake your computer from sleep?  I have multiple devices some had the apostrophe in the name some did not. They all worked the same, where sometimes they would sync and sometimes not. Some of my devices have first and last name and no iphone or ipod after it. Any suggestions?

    So we now have iOS 7 and Mavericks, and I regret to say it but the Wi-Fi sync is still not working properly.
