    Seriously people... this problem has been resolved for Mac owners since 10th Nov.  Fapapa's reply worked then and continues to work now for me.  I am using MacBook Pro early 2011 with the iPhone 5.  Just follow instruction exactly as instructed including restarting and rechecking the 'sync phone on wi-fi' option in iTunes.

    It works but then you need to just restart iTunes if ever required in the event that the iPhone/iTunes wifi connection is broken to restore it....

    This is the disease that is Apple. They spend so much time trying to make this awful product look pretty that the underlying technology and functionality suffers.

     

    Hey Apple, MORONS, are you listening? YOU BROKE THE ABILITY TO DO WIFI SYNCING WITH YOUR LATEST DISEASED UPDATE!!!.

     

    If I plug the ipod in to the computer, turn OFF wifi sync then turn it back ON, then unplug the ipod, everything works and itunes sees the ipod via wifi. But if I close itunes and reopen it, the ipod is GONE and will not come back over wifi unless I go through those steps again.

     

    Howzabout fix, MORONS? Or maybe it's just time to switch 100% to Google Music. Amazingly that works 100% of the time.

    To say the problem as been resolved for Mac users since Nov 10th is uneducated at best.

     

    Unfortunately the problem has NOT been resolved for a LOT of Mac users as of yet. I was hoping iTunes 11 would be the hero but it wasn't. This is getting absolutely rediculous. One of the main features of iTunes that Apple has is wifi sync and it doesn't work for a lot of people.

    If you look at 99% of the posts that people say "this fixed my problem" they are always followed up with "well, the problem is back again."

     

    Someday, maybe someday i will have my wonderful wifi sync back again for both my iPhone 4s and my iPad 3rd gen. Or, maybe not.

  • vincancook Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Well that all depends now doesn't it?  On whether a LOT of Mac users have actually taken the advice.  I suspect you haven't or else just haven't followed the advice fully.

     

    Secondly, the problem wi-fi can and does and WILL drop even after this if iTunes is left open for an extended period of time, but the problem is fixed regardless.  An iTunes restart returns the connection ... I think I stated this.  As did Fapapa.  For me this is the fix.  And it's still fixed..

     

    Don't forget to remove the dash from your computer name now..

    Any solution that requires "restart a program" is a work-around at best and not a solution. People are coming up with some very inventive ideas and that is the other clue that this is a core bug in iTunes. Multiple machines, operating systems and devices means the problem cannot be fixed by resetting a router. Rebooting the computer works once but who wants to reboot their computer every time, especially when it wasn't necessary prior to iTunes 10.7.

     

    Is this difficult to solve? Definitely or Apple would have solved it by now. My concern is the absolute cone of silence from Apple even acknowledging this problem exists. An update or two from an Apple spokesperson acknowleding our frustration would go a long way to calming me down.

  • vincancook Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    To be fair I always had to restart iTunes to get the connection back, so it's nothing new.  It's just back to what it was doing before it stopped working nearly all the time...

  • Pagemakers2 Level 1 Level 1 (25 points)

    I followed the supposed fix at the top of the page for my mac and nope... Wifi synching with iOS 6 and iTunes 11 is STILL bust.

     

    Running out of patience here.

  • Pagemakers2 Level 1 Level 1 (25 points)

    Fapapa's solution does not work for me and my iPhone and mac.

     

    When I plug my phone in (2 iPhones and 2 iPads here), sometimes they sync and sometimes they don't. Prior to iOS 6 they always synched every time.

     

    If I manually initiate the sync from the iphone sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. This is despite Fapapa's solution.

     

    If I manually initiate the sync from iTunes, again it works sometimes. This is the most reliable way for me.

     

    I'm finding the apple now is very different to the apple of a few years ago. I'm spending as much time to get things to work as I did with Windows.

    Turning off the Wi-Fi on my laptop and then switching it on again worked for me as well. The other things I tried (restarting iTunes, restarting my routers and restarting the mobile services on my laptop) didn't work. Once I had got the Wi-Fi sync between by laptop and iPhone working, it appears to goes on working without having to intervene in any way.

  • Pagemakers2 Level 1 Level 1 (25 points)

    The only thing that has changed in my setup is iOS 6. Prior to that each of my 4 devices would sync nightly without an issue.

     

    Apple need to fix this. Our workrounds, reboots etc are not a long term solution.

  • iphone32gb Level 1 Level 1 (10 points)

    The only fix I still have found running Windows is to restart the mobile device service. Since WIFI sync worked prior to version 10.7 of Itunes it is apparent that Apple broke something with the Itunes update/IOS 6. Talking to someone at the Apple store confirms that they hear this issue from a lot of customers.

     

    Proper implementation of this feature should not necessitate rebooting of anything. Only time will tell if IOS 6.1 and/or Itunes 11.01 will finally address this mess.

    Doubt it!

    I have found that power-cycling my iPad works too -- Would you mind seeing if power-cycling your iOS device works on your system?

     

    (It's not a permanent solution because eventually sync starts failing again, but it would be useful to know whether restarting the iOS device works)

  • Pagemakers2 Level 1 Level 1 (25 points)

    Power cycling works for me too.... For a day or so.

  • ratfinkle Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I agree it works for a few days but how do you deal with the mobile device service using up one CPU on your system for every iPhone / iPad / iPod you have configured for Wi-Fi sync? No product should go into a CPU spin cycle like that.
