Syncing a PDA, an iPod, or a Phone with Your Mac
If you use an iPhone, a Palm, or another device that can interact with your Mac, you’re definitely going to want to sync that device with iCal and Address Book. The procedure is a bit different for Palms than it is for other devices, but in either case it takes only a few steps. Here’s how to get started.
- Start up iSync (located in the Applications folder).
- Click the icon for the device you want to sync.
- If this is the first time you’re syncing, click each device icon and choose an option from the For first sync pop-up menu.
Click the Contacts check box to include contacts in the sync, and choose which groups to include from the Synchronize pop-up menu.
- Click the Calendars check box to include calendars in the sync, and choose which calendars to include.
- To sync all devices other than a Palm device, click Sync Devices to begin the sync process.
- To sync all devices, including a Palm PDA, start a HotSync by tapping the Palm’s HotSync button.
