Part 9: How to Transfer Files Over Wi-Fi Connection

AnyTrans Wi-Fi Transfer feature is based on iTunes 10.5, which introduced the ability to sync your iOS device over Wi-Fi network. Because Apple cannot assure the 100% stability of Wi-Fi Syncing, you may experience some problems after setting up Wi-Fi option on AnyTrans, and please use below steps to find a solution:

  • Make sure iOS device running iOS 5 or later, and a computer running iTunes 10.5 or later.
  • Make sure your device and computer are using the same Wi-Fi network.
  • It is recommended to check "Sync with this device over Wi-Fi" option in iTunes, to do so: Connect your iOS device with your computer > Launch iTunes and select your device on the left side of the iTunes window > Click the Summary tab > Scroll down to the Options section > enable the "Sync with this iOS device over Wi-Fi" option > Click the Apply Button.

    How to Use Wi-Fi Transfer Files 1

  • Open AnyTrans > Preferences > General > Check "Connet 'Device Name' over Wi-Fi" box:

    How to Add iTunes Playlist 2

  • After a while, quit and reopen AnyTrans, unplug your iOS device and check whether our program can detect it over Wi-Fi, as:

    How to Add iTunes Playlist 3

  • If AnyTrans still cannot detect your device, restart your home network router. You also need to make sure that your devices are not using a Virtual Private Network (VPN), or that they are all on the same VPN. A VPN may isolate the device and cause connectivity disruptions.
  • Be sure your device's battery level is higher than 70%, or you can just keep it charging.
  • For transferring a large numbers of files, we highly suggest you to use USB cable connection for its faster speed and much better stability.
