    Sync means to synchronize your iTunes media files on the iPad with the libraries in iTunes on the computer: Music, movies, books, apps, etc. You control what gets synced to the iPad with the settings for each category. You can force iTunes media on the iPad to sync back to the computer using the Transfer item under the Files > Devices menu.

    Backup is a separate action, that backs up your settings, camera roll, and the contents of various other apps. It does not backup your iTuns media or the apps themselves. What gets backed up by iTunes is entirely up to Apple and the app developer.

    iTunes may or may not synchronize and do a backup automatically when you plug the iPad in. Again, it depends on your settings. You can do just a sync, a backup and sync, or neither.

    The manual sync/apply (button at the bottom of the iTunes screen when iPad is plugged in) only syncs the iPad. It does not do a backup.


    By the way, your written English has improved a lot since you first posted here. Congratulations. I'm envious. I've never managed to get past a few simple phrases when I attempt to learn a new language.

    @ TP - excellent & concise explanation concerning 'sync vs. backup' - BUT, I can relate to your concluding statement above and also congratulate our OP on his or her improving English ability! :)

    I had 4 courses Spanish as an undergrad in the 1960s - could read well and not too bad at speaking back then - decades later, I've deteriorated to being able to order two beers or ask where the bathroom is at! :D Dave

    There is no date associated with syncing (that I know of). Only the backup has a date.

    Ah. I don't use wi-fi sync with iTunes. That's why I never noticed this.

    It makes sense that if you've got something that supposed to sync automatically that it would tell you the last time it did it. So, yes, it's telling you the last time it synced to iTunes using wi-fi. If it also does backups automatically (I don't remember) then it should give you a separate date time for when that happened.

    I sync and backup with iTunes on a computer every month or so, or when I'm about to do something risky. Otherwise I rely on the iCloud backup.

    The only other time I manually sync is if I've imported some non-iTunes content, like ePub books or music. Anything that I buy from iTunes itself will get automatically added to the computer, eventually.
