Syncing iPhone with iPad

Before you start:

Below are two other iPhone to iPad synchronizations requested by many readers that we'd also like to show you:


Sync iPhone Apps with iPad

 

Transferring your iPhone Apps to your iPad couldn't be easier

Start with a backup of your iPhone Apps to iTunes:

  • Connect your iPhone to your Computer ( iTunes should open up automatically. If not, launch it from Start->All Programs->iTunes->iTunes )
  • Click your iPhone in the "Devices" section on the left
  • Click the "Apps" tab
  • Check the "Sync Apps" check box
  • Select the Apps you want to sync
  • Click the "Sync" button in iTunes lower-right corner

Now that your iPhone Apps are transferred to iTunes, you just need to Sync your iPad with iTunes

  • Connect your iPad to your Computer
  • In iTunes, click your iPad in the "Devices" section on the left
  • Click the "Apps" tab
  • Check the "Sync Apps" check box
  • Select the Apps you want to sync
  • Click the "Sync" button in iTunes lower-right corner
 

Notes & possible issues

  • You can of course use this procedure to transfer your Apps the other way round, from iPad to iPhone and from any iPod device to any other

Sync more than one iPod, iPhone or iPad with iTunes - Sync multiple iPhone with one Computer - Sync iPhone plus iPad with iTunes

 

Note: for instructions on How to Keep iPhone synchronized with multiple iTunes libraries, please refer to our dedicated post

Contrary of what many people believe ( or fear ), there's no problem syncing as many iPod devices to iTunes as you want

  • Just connect any device ( iPod, iPhone or iPad ) to your Computer
  • In iTunes, click your iPhone or iPad in the "Devices" section on the left
  • Use tabs such as "Info" or "Apps" to set up your synchronization settings
  • When you are done, click the "Sync" button in iTunes lower-right corner
  • Now, connect another iPod, iPhone or iPad and you'll be able to set its sync preferences independantly from the first one. iTunes is able to manage several iPod devices separately without mixing anything up
 

Notes & possible issues

  • If iTunes warns you that your iPhone is linked to another library and asks whether you want to sync /delete it, don't do so, unless your iPhone is empty as this would erase its whole contents
    Instead, if one of your iPhones is synced to another computer ( library ), start by preventing iTunes from synchronizing iPhone and then Import iPhone content to iTunes
    Then only, you can sync your iPhone with your computer
  • In case you need to Populate iTunes based on iPhone, please follow our step by step instructions
  • To manage two sets of iPhone Contacts and Calendars on a single computer, you need to create two user accounts on your computer
