If you’re using a Mac with OS X Yosemite or earlier, you can use iCloud to keep your contacts, calendars, and other information up to date on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Mac. Just make sure that you’re signed in to iCloud with the same Apple ID on all of your devices and check what’s being updated in iCloud Settings.

 

Why you should disconnect your iPhone from your Mac

 

There are a few reasons why you should disconnect your iPhone from your Mac. First, if you use iCloud to sync your contacts, calendars, and other data, you don’t need to keep your iPhone connected to your Mac. Second, if you have an iPhone with a lot of storage, it can be used as an external drive for your Mac. Finally, if you have an iPhone with a lot of apps and games, it can be helpful to disconnect it from your Mac to free up some space.

If you’re using iCloud to keep your content up to date across your devices, you don’t need to do anything special when you disconnect your iPhone from your Mac. Your content will stay up to date on both devices.

If you’re not using iCloud, you can use iTunes on your computer to keep your content up to date. Connect your iPhone to your computer and open iTunes. Select your iPhone in the device list, then click the Summary tab.

Click the “Check for updates” button, then follow the instructions that appear. If there are no updates available, you’ll see a message that says “Software is up to date.”

If you can’t disconnect your iPhone from your Mac, you may need to force your Mac to restart. To do this, press and hold the power button until the Apple logo appears. Alternatively, you can try unplugging your iPhone from its USB cable and then plugging it back in. If neither of these methods work, try restarting both your iPhone and your Mac.

If you’ve been using your iPhone with your Mac, you may have noticed that the two devices have become synced. This means that when you make changes on one device, they’re automatically made on the other. For example, if you add a new contact to your iPhone, it will also be added to your Mac.

While this syncing can be convenient, it’s not always what you want. There may be times when you want to keep your iPhone and Mac separate, such as when you’re backing up your iPhone to iCloud instead of iTunes. Or you may simply prefer to have more control over which changes are made on each device.

Whatever your reason for wanting to disconnect your iPhone from your Mac, it’s easy to do. Just follow the steps below!

Your iPhone and Mac are designed to work together. When you connect your iPhone to your Mac, you can sync calendars, contacts, email accounts, and bookmarks—and share files between apps on both devices. You can also use your iPhone as a personal hotspot for your Mac.

If you have an iCloud account, you can keep your content up to date across all of your devices automatically. And if you need to free up space on your iPhone, you can offload some of its content to your Mac.

Reconnecting your iPhone to your Mac is simple and only takes a few seconds. Just make sure that you have the latest software on both devices and follow the instructions below.

If you’re an iPhone owner, sooner or later you’re going to want to connect it to your computer—perhaps to sync music, photos, or simply to charge the battery. But if you’ve never done it before, the process might seem a tad daunting.

Luckily, connecting your iPhone to your Mac is pretty easy. Just follow the steps below and you’ll be up and running in no time.

1. Begin by making sure that both your iPhone and your Mac are turned on and that they’re in close proximity to each other.

2. Next, open up the Bluetooth menu on your Mac. This can be found in the upper right-hand corner of your screen; simply click on the Bluetooth icon and select “Turn Bluetooth On” from the drop-down menu.

3. Once Bluetooth is enabled on your Mac, go ahead and open up the Settings app on your iPhone.

4. Within the Settings app, select “Bluetooth” from the list of options.

5. Now, make sure that Bluetooth is turned on by sliding the switch to the right; once it’s turned on, your iPhone should appear in the list of devices on your Mac (as shown below). Simply click on your iPhone’s name when it appears and wait for the two devices to connect.

And that’s all there is to it! Once your devices are connected, you can begin syncing data between them—or just use them as complementary devices for processing power or extra storage space.

 

What to do if you can’t reconnect your iPhone to your Mac

 

If you can’t reconnect your iPhone to your Mac, there are a few things you can try.

First, make sure that both your iPhone and your Mac are turned on and that they are in close range of each other. If they are, try restarting both your iPhone and your Mac.

If that doesn’t work, try resetting your iPhone by holding down the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for about 10 seconds until the Apple logo appears.

If you’re still having trouble, try updating your iPhone to the latest version of iOS. To do this, connect your iPhone to a Wi-Fi network, go to Settings > General > Software Update, and tap Download and Install.

If none of these things work, contact Apple Support.
