FAQ: Can I sync my iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with my Mac?


You can synchronize your eWallet information between your Mac and your iPhone / iPad / iPod touch via your wireless network (Wi-Fi).  eWallet for desktop is a separate purchase, if you don't already own it.  Get all the information you need to purchase the latest version of eWallet for Mac OS X.

To set up sync with your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, first make sure you have a wallet on the Mac with the same name and password as the one on your iPhone, iPod, or iPad. If you have a wallet on the Mac that is not on the device yet, the sync process will ask to copy it over the first time you sync.

To create a wallet on your Mac, start eWallet and go to File -> New.

Make sure it has the exact same name and password (case included) as the wallet on your Apple iOS device.


  1. Connect your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad to a wireless network that your Mac can access. If your Mac is connected via Ethernet (hard-wired) to your wireless router or to a network with a wireless access point, you will also be able to sync in most cases.
  2. Open eWallet on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad and tap the synchronize button (arrows in a circle) at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Open your wallet file in eWallet on your Mac and click the Sync Setup button in the toolbar, or pick Synchronize -> Setup from the menus. You must have a wallet file open to do this.
  4. Click "Add", then click the iPhone/iPad/iPod button and follow the instructions. You may be asked to enter the IP address from your device - you will find it at the bottom of the black synchronize screen displayed on your device.

Synchronization requires a WiFi network your Mac and device can both connect to. Unfortunately, Apple does not allow access to the USB connection or the iTunes sync process for non-Apple software.
