184 Part II: Managing Your Media
then manually copy music and audio books to your iPod to fill up the rest

of the space, or delete music and audio books directly from your iPod if you

need to make more room.

You have the option to set your iPod, iPhone, or Apple TV to automatically

synchronize with your entire iTunes library when you set it up the first time.

(See Chapter 2 for details on setting up your iPod, and Chapter 7 for details

on setting up Apple TV.) You can also set these devices to sync automatically

with specific content types — music, TV shows, movies, and so on — at any

time. This chapter shows you how to synchronize your iPod, iPhone, and

Apple TV with portions or all of your library, as well as how to copy content

to these devices selectively. You can also copy music, audio books, and pod-

casts to your iPod or iPhone manually, and copy music to your iPod shuffle

automatically or manually. (Apple TV synchronizes only by playlist.)

Synchronizing Your iPod or iPhone
When you set up your iPod or iPhone, you can choose the option to copy

your entire iTunes library (or part of your library) automatically, matching

it exactly, item for item, playlist for playlist. From that point on, your iPod or

iPhone synchronizes with your library automatically, right after you connect

it to your computer.

If you make changes in iTunes after synchronizing a device, those changes

are automatically made in the device when you synchronize again. If you add

or delete content in your iTunes library, that content is added or deleted in

the iPod or iPhone when you sync again.

If you store photos in an iPhoto library (on a Mac) or in a program (such as

Adobe Photoshop Album in Windows), you can set up your iPod or iPhone

with the option to copy your entire photo library. Your iPod or iPhone is

then synchronized automatically so that any changes you make to the photo

library are copied to the device.

Content items stored remotely (such as songs shared from other iTunes
libraries on a network) aren’t synchronized because the files aren’t physically

on your computer. (See Chapter 7 for more info on how to share iTunes files

over a network with iTunes as well as how to copy files to different computers

and their iTunes libraries.)

If you set your iPod or iPhone to synchronize automatically during the setup

process (see Chapter 2), it starts synchronizing automatically after you

connect it. Even so, you can choose content types to sync or not sync, as

described in “Synchronizing Content Selectively” later in this chapter. Even

so, you can then synchronize the device again after making changes to your

sync options.

185 Chapter 11: Synchronizing Devices with iTunes
Follow these steps to start synchronizing your iPod or iPhone (for an iPod

shuffle, see “Synchronizing an iPod shuffle” later is this chapter):

1. With iTunes running, connect the iPod or iPhone, and select its name

when it appears in the Devices section of the Source pane.

iTunes displays the device’s Summary page (under the Summary tab

of the device’s synchronization pages) to the right of the Source pane,

including how much space on the device is occupied by content and

how much is still free. (Figure 11-1 shows an iPod touch Summary page,

while Figure 11-2 shows an iPhone Summary page.)

2. If the iPod or iPhone isn’t automatically synchronizing, click the Sync

button in the bottom-right corner to synchronize it.

The iTunes Status pane tells you that iTunes is syncing the device.

3. Wait for the synchronization to finish and then click the Eject button

next to the iPod or iPhone name in the Source pane.

You should always wait until the iTunes Status pane (at the top)

displays that the synchronization is complete (refer to Figure 11-2).

4. Disconnect your iPod or iPhone from your computer.

Don’t disconnect your iPod or iPhone until its menu appears in its


That’s it. Your iPod or iPhone is now synchronized.
