How can I sync the pictures from my iPhone (5, iOS 6) to the Mac (OS X 10.8.2) (but not vice versa) via WiFi but without going through the cloud? In case it matters, I am using iPhoto on the Mac.

  • I don't know of a Wi-Fi solution, but tethered via USB there are many apps to manage this. On the Mac, I'd start with PadSync – bmike Oct 15 '12 at 20:40
  • The tethered solution for me is iPhoto, which works pretty well. – bitbonk Oct 15 '12 at 21:09
  • Hmm - so you just import them in iPhoto rather than using PhotoStream or the Image Capture app? – bmike Oct 15 '12 at 21:25
  • Yes, because PhotoStream goes through the cloud. – bitbonk Oct 16 '12 at 8:05

Connect the phone to the Mac. Launch iPhoto. Click import.

    They did specify Wifi sync, which implies no cord. – Cajunluke Oct 16 '12 at 1:10
  • Dead right they did, I misread. Apologies – terrydev Oct 16 '12 at 6:03
