FAQ: Can I sync my iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with my Windows PC?
There are two ways you can synchronize your eWallet information between your Windows PC and your iPhone / iPad / iPod touch: via your wireless network (Wi-Fi) or via the cloud. eWallet for Windows (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 Windows.
Local Wi-Fi Sync
To set up local Wi-Fi sync with your iPhone, or iPad, first make sure you have a wallet on the PC with the same name and password as the one on your iPhone or iPad. If you have a wallet on the PC that is not on the device yet, the sync process will copy it over the first time you sync.
- Connect your iPhone or iPad to a wireless network that your PC can access. If your PC 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.
- Start eWallet on your iPhone or iPad and tap the synchronize button (arrows in a circle) at the bottom of the screen, and walk through the Sync Setup steps.
- Open your wallet file in eWallet on your PC, and click Sync Manager on the Home tab. You must have a wallet file open on the PC to synchronize.
- If this is your first sync setup, click Device Sync, then click the iPhone/iPad 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. If setting up a new or additional sync location, first click “Add” and then choose Device Sync.
iPhone/iPad synchronization require a local Wi-Fi network your PC 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.
If you cannot set up sync, try following these steps.
eWallet’s SyncPro engine on Windows PC has a cloud sync option. With cloud sync there is no need for a direct connection between devices to sync – and of course you can also use cloud sync as one method of creating backup files of your wallet and get it stored safely off-device and off-site.
For detailed instructions on configuring cloud sync, open eWallet’s built-in help documentation on the PC and select Synchronization → Cloud Sync.
