    Default iPhone Sync Wifi WITHOUT power connection

    Using Wi-Fi Syncing with iOS 5
    Once wi-fi syncing is enabled and set up properly, the iOS device will automatically sync wirelessly any time the hardware is connected to a power source,

    I have found that if I hit SYNC on the Mac, it will SYNC with iOS5 on my iPhone4 even when it IS NOT CONNECTED to any power source. The iPhone appears to be 'connected' in iTunes even though it is sitting in my hand. I was able to delete 3 songs off my phone, add a Photos folder onto my phone, and also update the podcasts on my phone.

    Is anyone else finding this?

    iPhone 4
    Mac running Snow Leopard

    Yep, it does that on my Windows 7 Phone. I think when the power is connected it allows it to do a Wifi sync automatically instead of user-initiated.

    The key word is "automatically"; you have to manually initiate it if your phone is not connected to a power source.

    I used the WIFI sync and to be honest i did not like because it takes way too long about 2-4x as long... i am sticking to wired sync!!!
