When I’m freelancing on the move I often need/want my phone next to me while I’m working, and if it needs charging I will do so via a USB port on my mac.
This has one annoying issue that comes with it though…Each time I plug in my iPhone, iTunes automatically tries to open.
Luckily the solution to stop this is a simple one:
- Fire up iTunes.
- go to preferences (cmd + ,).
- Click ‘devices’.
- Tick ‘prevent iPods…etc etc…syncing automatically’.
As I almost always charge via USB from my Mac this option has saved me a lot of hassle.
