After installation of iTunes 11, there is no direct (cable-bound) possibility to sync an iPhone to Outlook (Windows) anymore. Expecially for business PCs that are behind a company firewall, this is not good. These PCs can't sync to iCloud. How can this have happened?


iPhone 5, Windows XP Pro, iTunes 11

What are you seeing? Here's what I see in my iTunes: Untitled.jpg

 

If you have iCloud syncing your contacts it looke like this:

If you need to sync to Outlook you could use iCloud Control Panel or you can disable iCloud contacts on your iPhone in Settings > iCloud.

 

Hope this helps.

    Before upgrading at 11, in my case the personal calendars was synced with ICloud because i would like to manage my appointements in all devices (and also my Business PC), and also i transferred the Enterprise Exchange Calendar in my iphone by Itunes with usb connection.

     

    So i can't disabled ICloud sync, because i lose functionalities, but i can't import in my Iphone the Work Calendar coming from Exchange Server.

     

    So for me the problem is real, and i think that unfortunately no workaround, seems to be available.

     

    I hope that Apple consider that aspect, and fix it.

     

    Thanks

    P.S. if it could be useful, another thread is open on the same topic: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4555598?tstart=0

    Same problem here!

     

    I hope that Apple will consider to keep both iCloud and iTune sync with the calendar.

     

    Thanks,

    I have the same problem as well.

    Same problem. Fortunately, I still had a copy of the iTunes 10.7 setup so I reverted back to that.

    Sync your piPhone directly with the Exchange server, just as you sync your computer directly with the exchange server. Don't sync with your computer.

    Then when you change something on your computer or your iPhone, it will automatically sync with the other device (and vice-versa) This is the advantage of syncing via a cloud.

    but i can't import in my Iphone the Work Calendar coming from Exchange Server.Thanks

    You don't import it. You add your exchange server account to the iPhone and turn off syncing contacts via iTunes.

    Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Add Account... > Microsoft Exchange.

    Your iCloud should be your "main" calendar.

    You sync iPhone to iCloud and you sync computer to iCloud. Then don't sync computer to iPhone as they are already both in sync wih iCloud.

    iCloud should not "have" to be our "main" calendar.  A programmer thinking they know what the user wants wrote this enhancement.  Dumb.

  • Appletini6 Level 3 Level 3

    It "should" be your "main" calendar if you "want" it "syncing" with "other" "devices"

  • UTNick Level 1 Level 1

    This is absolutely ridiculous! I don't want to sync via iCloud. It's my data and I want it secure on my computer. The fact that Apple has decided that I can no longer cable sync with Outlook is unacceptible. I do not consider this a feature. I consider it a flaw. And it better get fixed soon!

    Turf off iCloud from iPhone and sync with Outlook through iTunes. What's the problem?

  • rusher2004 Level 1 Level 1

    If you need to sync to Outlook you could use iCloud Control Panel or you can disable iCloud contacts on your iPhone in Settings > iCloud.

    If you want them all in sync, then they have to be in sync with the same thing, unless you would rather update all your different calendars manually.

    "Correct".

    However, "personally", I don't look at iCloud. If I change "something" on my iPhone, it automatically goes to my computer and my iPad. I don't want to "have" to update 3 different "places" manually. And I don't want to have to sync with iTunes.
