I think there could be a number of reasons why Apple has yet to offer a viable solution for wireless syncing of the iPhone, Ipod Touch, or the iPad. My guess is as good as the next guy but I'm gonna say mine's better - because, well, they're my guesses.
The most talked about reason for no wireless sync is bandwidth. ATT isn't going to be able to support millions of iDevices trying to sync their movies, music, and mail. The network would be killed. However, there's WiFi you say. I agree.
Which brings me to my next point. WiFi ought to work just fine. I agree but even with gigabytes of data, it can take a while. And it would mean battery life expended. Why use up battery life when you can connect your iDevice to your PC or Mac that also charges your iDevice at the same time?
So, that could be why but I'm not so sure. Here's the reason why I think Apple is partially keeping wireless sync from taking place. iTunes store.
When you plug in your iDevice into the USB port, iTunes starts up. And it starts up to the iTunes store where you see the music, movie, and TV selections that are prominently promoted. There could be a good chance you'll see something you like and end up buying it.
I think that might have something to do with the lack of wireless sync in the beginning. Getting users to buy more content would definitely help Apple acquire more content since providers would be able to sell more.
If I am syncing wirelessly, I am not going to see what's on the iTunes store front.
I wager that if wireless sync happens, bandwidth, battery life, and the ability to promote content would all have to happen.
