Quick Tip: Speed up iPhone sync times (not by disabling backup)

A while ago, we wrote about a way to shorten the time that your iPhone running the 2.0 software takes to sync. In this method, you cancelled the part of the sync in which your iPhone was backed up. While this most certainly does improve sync times, you won’t be happy with yourself when you’re forced to restore your iPhone and you don’t have that backup.

However, iPhoneFreak has discovered another way to improve your times. By default, diagnostic data from your iPhone is sent to Apple every time you sync. (This data does not contain any personal information, only crash logs and the like.) Apparently, this takes a good bit of time as well. Follow the steps after the break to disable this.

1) When your iPhone is connected to your computer, open iTunes and select your iPhone in the sidebar. Uncheck the ‘Automatically sync when this iPhone is connected ‘ option.

2) Unplug your iPhone, and then plug it back in.

3) Select your iPhone in the sidebar again, and right click it. Then select “Reset Warnings.”

4) Sync your iPhone.

5) You will receive a pop-up message. Uncheck the box in the message, and then click “Don’t Send.”

Note that you can now have your iPhone launch iTunes and be automatically synced again.
