DearMob iPhone Manager supports connecting iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch via Wi-Fi. If it's your first time to use Wi-Fi connection, please enable "Sync with this iPhone over Wi-Fi" in iTunes.

You only need to set this for once. The next time DearMob iPhone Manager will automatically recognize and connect to your device when the PC and iPhone are on the same Wi-Fi network, no need to use USB connection, and no iTunes required.

1. Connect your device to iTunes via USB.

2. Unlock your screen and tap to Trust this computer when prompted on your iPhone.

3. Click the device icon on iTunes.

Aspects Worth Noting

  • Make sure that your device and your computer are on the same Wi-Fi network.
  • During the Wi-Fi connection mode, please keep the iPhone screen on. Set it to "never" turn off or to a longer time in Settings > Display & Brightness> Auto-Lock.
  • If you cannot use Wi-Fi connection the next time, re-launch iTunes and re-enable Wi-Fi connection.
  • The USB connection is the recommended mode for device backup, since it is more stable.
  • Depending on your network condition, the Wi-Fi connection may be slower than cable connection.
